Likelihood to Recommend

Abacus, by Emburse

Abacus is great for smaller companies that need to automate expense management. It is a very user-friendly system that makes it easy for all employees to understand without any training. We have heard of issues with their AMEX program. Companies that have tens or hundreds of corporate AMEX cards should likely explore other options

Rydoo

I would recommend it for someone who wanted to track reimbursed expenses or credit card expenses, but there is not enough in Rydoo to work with these two distinct categories of items separately. It is not a good fit for someone looking to have their expenses seamlessly reimbursed (like Expensify). I do recommend it if you need to work with multiple currencies, because it makes that easy.

Cons

Abacus, by Emburse

  • 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.

  • Support responsiveness.
  • Features to detail what has actually been reimbursed vs. what has been reported.

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.

When Rydoo is responsive, support is just fine, but there have been times when our requests for support have gone unanswered for more than a day when their queue has indicated response times much shorter than that.

Alternatives Considered

Abacus, by Emburse

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).

Rydoo

Expensify was easy to use too but I feel like Rydoo does a better job of capturing receipt info with less work on the users end. Also with Rydoo you don't have to create a report, you can just submit expenses as you go. With Expensify you had to create a report first which added extra unnecessary work with no benefits.

Return on Investment

Abacus, by Emburse

  • Makes expenses very transparent and easy to approve. Receipt uploaded, time, who was involved, where (geolocating), and under what category the expense and reimbursement should be pulled from (customer service, sales, product, engineering teams, etc.).
  • No negatives! Other than random bugs, this app worked amazing for our company!

Rydoo

  • Rydoo saves time, which saves money. I'm able to make and check expenses quickly.
  • Rydoo was easy to learn and integrate. It didn't require lengthly training so it smoothed the onboarding process for new hires.
  • Rydoo centralizes internal communication about specific expenses, since you can leave comments.
