Ability to sync with many other systems and flexible systems. I do not recommend for areas with a bad internet connection.

Tallie is great for companies or outsourced accounting teams who are heavily involved with helping users upload receipts or code changes to the correct G/L Account groups or dimensions. Tallie allows for you to set up specific Expense options that are easier for users to chose what charges are for that are mapped to G/L Account groups in the background which allows for more accurate accounting. However, if your accounting books are using other dimensions like departments or projects the more complex the set up the more help a user might need, so it's nice how easy it is to drop into an account to help finish the more complex coding for users prior to them being submitted for approval.

  • Seamless integration with Bill.com. While this will not specifically benefit every user, our organization was able to quickly marry the two tools and provide timely reimbursements to employees.
  • Customer support -- they're available via so many mediums: user training, email, phone, support case reference numbers. If you need assistance, whether an end-user or administrator, you can get it.
  • In-app camera with intelligent image analysis to extrapolate the vendor name, date of the transaction, amount. It also offers the ability to import a photo from your mobile gallery, and then perform the analysis.

Cons
DATABASICS
  • Allow money returns from an advance to be reflected in the advance balance. If an employee settles an advance by returning cash, it does not reflect that in the system.

  • Search functions need much improvement; i.e. vendor search for transactions.
  • Impossible to import transactions for dates prior to card being added to system. There's no going back.
  • Needs better recognition of expense categories. Sees airlines and Chick-Fil-A as Dues and Subscriptions (?)

As a user of Tallie, I have never needed any support to use it. It is simple, logical and needs no training to use. As a company, I don't think we need any ongoing support but I believe the setup process, which they guided us through a year ago went well.

Tallie stacks up well to Concur. In terms of ease of use, Tallie wins by a landslide. However, when it comes to deeper functionality and integrations into other systems within the business, Concur definitely wins there. So, Tallie is easier for more simple purposes, while Tallie works for more complex organizations.

  • Tallie allows my finance team to spend so much less time on expense reports. After a large event, we would have 20 employees submitting reimbursements taking many hours of their time. This has cut out that time.
  • Tallie allows me to spend a total of fifteen minutes updating records in a report for reimbursement compared to the two hours I used to spend on our archaic system.
  • Tallie allows direct deposit into your account 2-3 days after your report is approved compared to the weeks it used to take to receive reimbursement.
