I believe it is well suited for a small sized company, like my previous one, that does not want any IT overhead to onboard a new tool. This tool is available online and can be accessed via the internet. It has all the necessary components to help you record your activity. But the solution in its current form is not scalable. [I've] Given few of my reasons I feel this is not well suited for a large company (like the one I currently work at).

I think Webexpenses is great for smaller organizations but maybe not for larger ones. It's also a good fit for positions that require travel that employees track and are reimbursed for mileage or personal expenses. I definitely would not depend on the mobile app if you can't also use Webexpenses on desktop. Sometimes it's glitchy and requires you to use both
Read full review Pros It allowed me to fill my work time sheet. Every week I had to fill this. Based on the numbers the company keeps track of which days I worked. It reminded me to fill the time sheets constantly and also notifies me when it gets approved. So I never really forgot to fill it. It allowed me to see my vacation days left, and plan ahead. It had a list of holiday dates which was very handy to plan my trips or vacation. It had categorization by department and my view of time sheets was only limited to me. I could not see others time sheets, and except for my manager, nobody else could look into mine. It had internet access, which meant I could fill my sheets anywhere. It came in handy while working from home where a VPN connection may not be present. I also guess that this service being online meant no extra effort from IT department side.

It is a very inexpensive product. Well worth the cost. Read full review Cons The UI in my opinion was too simple. Calendar views were pretty stale. I don't believe there was a mobile app for this, or this site worked nicely when opened on small devices. A better view of my time could have been shown. At the time I could only see small excel like boxes filled with numbers. Graphs, or some other visualization of remaining days would have been lucrative. Very stupid login page. We had to fill "company name" at the login page and this name had to match exactly to what was set in the database. It was frustrating and I always had to refer my notes to get that right. There wasn't any preselection option which made it hard to do it fast. If I can only set a few fields (because we had long list of dropdowns to choose from) then this process could be much smoother. A major issue was not being able to see my team-mates schedule or calendar. E.g. when are they taking vacations. So I had to pester them offline to get this information. Many times due to inter-team miscommunication we didn't know about others vacation days during planning. A central place where I could see this information would have helped me a lot.

This can be improved and there is the scope for improvement. More tabs can be provided in petty cash expense so you need not type. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I would see no issues in renewing the Webexpenses software, and this has improved the way we process expenses.

its a very easy to use system that allows me to enter what I need and not have to worry if i've entered it correctly. It guides you through the process very easily and ensures that very detail you need is entered. Its streamlined and well thought out a must have for any business.

There was an unexpected system issue that caused us to have to postpone a user training session at the last minute. Our Webexpenses trainer was not aware that it was going to occur.

The performance is great. Pages and reports load quickly. The data export/import from Webexpenses to our financial software, ACS, is not user friendly, mainly due to ACS import steps
Read full review Support Rating
The support for the initial setup was great, but since then we have only had to contact support once when we had problems uploading credit card files. The help we received at this time was not good and we ended up trying various things until we resolved the problem ourselves. The online support tutorials are good, but searching for a specific issue is difficult.

Our trainer spoke very quickly and went through the training material quickly. Since this process was new to us, we missed some important information. We would have benefitted from further training with report generation as well. She did provide a recording of the training, but again, she went through the material very quickly.

The process is well organized, easy to track and easy to check the progress of my claim. Webexpenses can detect the amount on the receipt
Read full review Alternatives Considered
I believe it is not in my power to select the best tool. It depends on whatever company I work for. It just happens that we use a different system (and I don't even know if this is an internal system, or another online tool). But I do like my current system. It has a better UI, and more detailed insights about my time. It also shows my pay stubs and other small neat information like tax papers to help me organize. It also has notifications when something new comes up. All these features I think I lacked in Replicon (or maybe my company didn't have access to these).

Fortunately, I have not used any other alternative before so I am afraid I am not in a position to establish any sort of comparative analysis between Webexpenses and any of its competitors. However, when asking people in other organisations Webexpenses was always the recommended option instead of other providers.

The Webexpenses multiple department management was not a perfect match for our internal structure. We developed work-arounds.
Read full review Return on Investment Replicon helped me maintain a record of my time. This helped during my assessment where my manager could see my work hours. Replicon was easy to use, so I didn't spend my precious time filling sheets in this site. As far as I can remember, this site only gave me problem once, but was never down. Though a good tool, I actually never got the use case of recording your time sheets. I think it will be pretty hard for an employee to just fill the time sheet and not show up for work. There are so many meetings and people around you, that you cannot fake your presence. So I feel there is no need to fill time sheets. It is a functionality with no real world solution.

Accounts departments require less capacity as its all automated. Good tracking of expenses through the dashboard for managers. Read full review ScreenShots
