Brex
Very well suited for founders who are building companies in the US but are not US citizens. Works like a charm for start-ups who are looking for a cutting-edge product and not an outdated bank! Small-medium teams. Not well suited for those who are used to traditional banking and prefer in-person interaction or over the phone.

Our organization was able to get a deep discount on the product, so it's suited for small businesses that are very cost conscious that just need basic tools. It's best to evaluate your accounting platform and how the information can flow from ExpenseWire to the financial application, since what we use currently doesn't allow automatic sync, which might be problematic in many cases.

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.

Prompt and always extremely fast to respond. I also think the intuitiveness of their solution negates the need for much support

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.
