Airbase
Airbase is best suited for finance departments that are looking to really reign in their company's spending processes; to not only get a holistic view of where, when and how employee expense spending occurs, but to make decisions and fine tune company policies and procedures centered on these business activities.

Marqeta
Great platform for FinTechs that want to build a global business in one place. Lots of control available to run a card program. If you want to do less work (just get cards for your customers with less customization and not worry about details) there are better options.

Support Rating
Airbase
The customer support offered by Airbase has been top-notch; we could not have asked for anything more. They were accommodating during the onboarding process. They have always been quick to respond to any issue that we have faced. We get the sense that they are well-run and organized company.

The support team has been excellent and very responsive. Whenever we had issues and reached out, we were able to resolve most problems within 24 hours. I think it really helps that they are still a new-ish startup and are very hands-on with their business and with support.

Alternatives Considered
Airbase
After bidding out several vendors, we arrived at Airbase as our solution, as it seemed to be a better fit for our sized company that Paycom or Concur, which we deemed as more expensive and solutions for larger companies. Airbase was very fine tuned to our needs and made us feel important despite our size, which albeit a small consideration, is huge for us as a family-owned company.

We evaluated a couple back in 2018 (GPS and Galileo), but I'm not sure that is relevant anymore.
