actiTIME Inc.
ActiTime is a perfect program for managing payments and expenses within the company. It is an ideal tool to manage the activity of employees and the time they devote to their daily tasks within the company. ActiTime is undoubtedly recommended for its excellent performance in generating reports and the quality of its production. If anything could improve this tool it is its interface as it has become a bit outdated.

Bento for Business
Our organization runs a lot of short-term or one-off programs where the program staff need to buy supplies -- Bento is perfect for these scenarios. The staff who make the purchases are not staff who would typically have a company card, so we wanted a solution other than giving them a credit card. Bento was perfect because it makes the purchasing & bookkeeping processes for these programs easy and efficient for both the staff and the finance team

If you are looking for prepaid business care or a business expense card, I highly do not recommend using Bento for Business. Do yourself and your business a favor and use a more customer service orientated services such as Pex, Wex, or Expensify. Bento for Business is bad business. Just don't do it.

Return on Investment
actiTIME Inc.
  • It allows us to take the process and the expenses made in each project, and these give us the possibility to choose the correct budget for what we are doing.
  • This application does not give the ease of knowing that the payments will be made to different employees without any complication, generating reports that justify the hours of work they did.

  • Saving time by eliminating reimbursements
  • Allowing many staff to have a card to make purchases without worrying about financial control/risk of too many people having a company card
  • Efficiently synchs with Quickbooks
