Bento for Business

If you have a remote workforce and want to save time and/ or inconvenience for employees by eliminating expense reports, this is a great product. You lose a little control over expenses but we just created a policy in our employee handbook to clarify the misuse of funds and set category restrictions on the card. If you have everyone relying on this, you can have one person make a large purchase that depletes all of the funds. A free transfer takes 2 days but an immediate transfer to correct no funds has a fee ($30 for my bank)

Expensify

Expensify is perfect for a small team or a small business. It's affordable (I believe there is even a free version) and it is very easy to submit reports and to teach others how to submit reports. For a larger business, a one-stop shop for travel and expenses might be a better option. Larger companies might want more analytics as well, although Expensify does allow you to run reports.

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.

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

Bento for Business

There are not a lot of other apps like this. Most of them just track expenses without giving employees the ability to use company funds. I understand that in larger companies this may not be an issue, but for our employees, it is nice to not have to use their own money. You can take pictures of receipts to prove what you bought, in-app, like a lot of other expense tracking apps

Expensify

I am unaware of any competitors, but I am VERY happy with Expensify. At this point, we are not interested in shopping for any other alternatives. The only case that we have made for switching away from Expensify would be switching to an ERP (Sage Intacct) which is capable of handling expense statement coordination on its own. That said, it is unfair to compare Expensify to Sage Intacct. Furthermore, I am not sure that Sage Intacct's Expensify-like module is better than Expensify.
