DATABASICS Expense

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

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.

Pros

DATABASICS Expense

  • Mobile application.
  • Easy to attach supporting documents.
  • The approver can approve from a mobile phone.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

  • Ease of use: it's easy to learn Expensify, the layout and navigation are easy to follow.
  • Reminders: you can set reminders for yourself to submit reports daily, weekly or monthly.
  • Uploading receipts: you can scan receipts on your phone or take pictures and attach.

Cons

DATABASICS Expense

  • 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.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

DATABASICS Expense

It costs less. Flexible employees allow you to customize the system to fit your requirements.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
