Likelihood to Recommend

Brex

Brex is very appropriate if you do not have a centralized purchasing function. It is great to raise and lower credit limits for individual cards. It is great to review expenses that employees have.It isn't as great for when multiple users are making purchases for the sale department. There isn't a good way to classify that.

BrightHR is great at showing who is on holiday, who is in the office or working from home; which team and who reports to who. It is great at setting up new employees and it is very intuitive with setting the new employees up.You can add all HR documents to individual employee folders and you can give permission to those employees to view documents or you can turn that off. You can set reminders for reviews and PDRs as well as you receive reminders from Bright HR letting you know if the information is missing; for if someone needs holiday/TOIL approval.I find the fact that documents cannot be viewed in the application frustrating as sometimes I do not want to download the document to my laptop.

Pros

Brex

  • Rewards - The rewards were the main reason for us switching. Our previous card provider did not have a good rewards program.
  • User Interface and experience - When a charge is recorded on the Brex card, users immediately receive a text notification asking them to send a picture of their receipt. Brex automatically attaches the receipts to the charge which has saved our users a significant amount of time.

Cons

Brex

  • This is unusual but I struggle to write con's - everything has been seamless so far
  • Perhaps they could improve the UI/UX for uploading receipts when there are multiple photos

Brex 9.5
Based on 3 answers
Brex support has been responsive whenever I have had a question. Users can contact them through the help screen when logging in or send emails. They have answered my questions quickly and always provide the information that I need to solve my issue. I have not had to work with support frequently as there are very few problems we've encountered with the cards.

Brex

Divvy allows you to get hyper focused in on how much individuals are allowed to spend. Honestly it is comparable to Brex, but is more well suited for micromanaging organizational spend.Brex is good because I am able to give my employees limits that match our budgets and I don't care about micromanaging their spend.

BrightHR

I chose BrightHR as it offered a one-stop platform for HR management for which we have dedicated UK and ROI HR specialists who not only give HR advice but also write policies and handbooks, etc. They are a one-stop-shop, which was very important as when I signed the contract I did not have an HR person in my team and they were essentially my back office.Also, by signing up, I got access to Bright Safe too; which is great as again it's a one-stop-shop for Health and Safety in the workplace. So I can roll out toolbox talks, training, and accident management.

Return on Investment

Brex

  • Realized return on all expenditure through points where previously this wasn't seen at all in the business
  • Ease of use and general increase in employee satisfaction. It would typically take one full day to lodge expenses at previous companies - now it takes a matter of seconds
  • Access to credit at an affordable rate

BrightHR

  • Saved admin time in filing and then searching for documents.
  • Saved admin time in chasing for managers' approvals for holiday requests.
  • Saved admin time in chasing managers/employees to update their profiles.
