AmTrav

AmTrav has enabled users to handle travel themselves very easily and directly. Prior to AmTrav, we had our HR department also focused on travel booking and travel management. Now, through a set of policies and approval permissions, managers and employees can directly book flights without the need to engage another team.

Expensify

For a small business the free site is terrific. It offers a full expense reporting function for reps and includes everything that a comparable paid service would. It also offers commenting, where the manager can write comments on the expense report, and the ability to save and print reports.

Pros

AmTrav

  • Excellent user interface.
  • Competitive booking rates that allow users a variety of options.
  • Phenomenal customer service.
Tristan Dobbs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

  • Expensify allows a company to establish simple approval rules and pipelines. The days of remembering who approves which user's expense reports are in the past.
  • Expensify allows users to easily code their expenses to the accounting department's general ledger. During implementation, the accounting team is tasked with creating a map between simple categories/description and general ledger account codes. E.g., Telephone -> 66150
  • The mobile app allows users to quickly take photos of their receipts/invoices/supporting documents on the go. Our CEO LOVES the ability to upload support to the app as he is signing the check at a restaurant.
  • The software downloads corporate credit card data daily. Furthermore, they mark "verified credit card transactions" with an icon that indicates as much.
  • The administration has the ability to request "copilot" access to user's accounts. This allows curators the ability to help users follow best practices.

Cons

AmTrav

  • Filtering flights by average on-time reliability is not available.
  • Permissions can be tricky for approvers. It's not always easy to see what your team is doing.
  • Google Calendar integration is flawed -- it keeps adding events for time you've approved but does not signify who the travel is for.
Tristan Dobbs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

  • The SmartScan feature sometimes has typos. I don't know enough about the technology to even know if this is something that could be better.
  • The user experience is a little bit clunky when SmartScan doesn't work and you have to do things manually. Not sure a way around this, though.

We like using the tool and we receive positive feedback from employees and management who use the tool. It saves time and helps us concentrate on the value adding activities so we are very likely to keep using Expensify in the future

Mobile works great, but let's be honest. It's just a photograph. Their OCR and human turk technology works great to scan that photo and enter the proper information. The web interface is decent and allows you to work with single expenses in great detail. What's missing is the ability to mass update expenses, and this sometimes hurts, especially if you're a heavy user of the system.

Support is the absolute best part of the platform. Users who have any issues at all are free to contact AmTrav and work through a solution. Missed flights or emergency car rentals are a breeze -- all that needs to be done is to call the AmTrav support number and a solution is worked out with minimal involvement.

Our rep has been amazing. He has built custom reports for us that have been very time consuming and difficult. Our reps are also currently looking into new submission solutions for us that we are excited about. They came up with this and recommended it on their own without me complaining about an issue. They are about our success and are very excited about the product they offer.

Alternatives Considered

AmTrav

AmTrav excels in customer service. They have won us over by proving that, when in times of need, they can get the job done. If an employee has an issue, it can be a very stressful time for both the employee and the travel booking managers. AmTrav takes the responsibility in a way that we haven't seen demonstrated before and organises a fix.
Tristan Dobbs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

Expensify and Concur are similar products, but we ultimately went with Expensify because of its more robust sync options (e.g., syncs to more systems easily) and was more cost-effective for the number of users we have set up (between 50-100). I haven't used Concur to any great extent but it seemed like a reasonable solution given a different economic situation for the company. I've also used expense reporting utilities connected to systems like Maconomy and NetSuite with no real issues.

Return on Investment

AmTrav

  • We have freed up 60% of our HR department's time that used to be focused on booking.
  • We have reduced spending on flights overall through policy enforcement.
  • Travel changes and adjustments are now possible through AmTrav. They will arrange new travel plans on the fly.
Tristan Dobbs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

  • In 2020 Expensify had a negative ROI to our business because of the increase and changes to their business model.
  • We recommend avoiding annual agreements with Expensify because they would change the terms in the middle of the year without giving you the option to leave.
