Divvy is well suited for almost any organization/business I can think of. If you need to spend money from a specific predetermined budget, Divvy works great. If you have a high volume of transactions and you're fairly decent with excel, you can create an upload file to move transactions into your general ledger (currently only QB is supported for plug ins). If I'm really trying to find a less appropriate example, maybe if you have employees who can have a large credit limit and need to travel a lot, an Amex card might have better benefits.

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
BILL
  • Agile budget approval - no more back and forth conversations where the team needs to "beg" for more. They actually learn very quickly how to make a rock solid business case on their own to me, because I can "1 click a yes" or "need a bit more ROI" coaching to a yes, if need be.
  • Real-time expense capture - no more waiting until month-end to see expenses that might not have been a wise choice. Or at least get a jump on why funds were spent, so we can all understand the need better.
  • No more wasted time digging around for 'that one 5 figure receipt' from 30 days ago!

Paychex, Inc.
  • Ability to directly reimburse employees' bank accounts on the application itself; no need to do a separate wire/ACH payment via the company bank
  • Keeps track of all receipt submissions and you can view them on the application
  • Approval flow meets our needs

Cons
BILL
  • I wish there were more options in the BILL reimbursement platform - for example, the ability to do a report instead of submit a single expense.
  • We would love for reimbursements to feed into QuickBooks differently, but we understand that this is an early feature and hope it is further developed in the future.

  • Increase ability to integrate with different accounting platforms automatically (we use Xero)
  • Enhance the ability to generate more types of reports with different field combinations
  • User interface is not as user friendly compared to other solutions

Support Rating
BILL
We have enjoyed using Divvy and its functions. The Divvy team has been great, and their support team is outstanding. They have a chatbox on the platform, and they only seem to be someone on call. I have found its benefits to be outstanding, that I recommend it to my clients. I also feel that Divvy rolling out new features only makes it more compelling to stay on as a user.

We have used American Express and BOA and while they both give you the standard use of a credit card, neither one allows you to do all the things that Divvy does. Virtual cards, budget increases, categorization, receipt maintenance. Divvy is the only one we have tried of this nature and we love it.

Return on Investment
BILL
  • Divvy is free, so it was tough for us to turn down. We decided to withhold our larger transactions from Divvy to receive those rewards directly.
  • Divvy has saved our Finance/Accounting team tons of time digging through expenses, reimbursements, invoices, etc.

  • Less time spent inputting/tracking expenses
  • Positive employee feedback (greater satisfaction as compared to Excel)
