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.

Emburse Abacus

Emburse Abacus is well suited for mid-market organizations that are open to - or embrace - the concept of real-time processing of expense transactions. Emburse Abacus takes a radically different approach from other platforms that rely on modeling paper-based monthly (or periodic) expense reports containing multiple expenses submitted simultaneously. Emburse Abacus allows each transaction to be very rapidly processed individually so that approving managers and accounting professionals are able to perform review tasks and identify potential problems throughout the entire month, relieving the massive monthly influx of large numbers of expense reports simultaneously.

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.

Emburse Abacus

  • User-Friendly Interface: Reviews from our employees (ages ranging from 20s-70s) are all positive in regards to the ease of submitting an expense and getting reimbursement on Abacus
  • Timely Reimbursement: After final approval, money hits user accounts within 2 days
  • Approval routing: ability to set up multi-tier complex approval routes
  • Syncs with Sage Intacct: pushes entries on a day to day basis in to Intacct and it hits our GL accordingly
  • Abacus is competitively priced compared to the competition
  • Abacus utilizes "by expense" management. Getting rid of expense reports and batch reports (they do have an option where you can batch if need be)

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

  • When you upload a receipt to abacus it would be great to port in the information from the receipt to the text fields.
  • It would be good to have a more automated way for Abacus to integrate in with other payroll systems.
  • It would be nice to have more levels of permissions, e.g. manager level, administer level and employee level.

Brex

Brex 9.6
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.

I have never had to contact Abacus support and have not heard stories from any of my colleagues having to do so either. Our accounting department stresses the ease of Abacus and has not voiced any concerns with the software or the product support team or the product support process.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Emburse Abacus

I have never used anything like Abacus but I can't imagine a product that offers more value than this does. It allows you to categorize the expense, which will show where we are spending the most money as a company. It keeps a great record of past expenses and the status (if one was not approved, you will see where it says "denied", by whom, and there will usually be a reason provided so that you know how to correct it).

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

Emburse Abacus

  • It is giving reliable services.
  • I am happy with its user-friendly services. Since I have issued the virtual and physical cards, I am getting real-time, and end-to-end control over my employee expenses. They can now easily go to visits and this has built their trust too. Further through receipts and expense details, I can easily control the pre-set budgets and easily configure rules to control spending.
  • I will also like to praise their customer care team they are very helpful and always ready to assist.
