What is Airbase?

Airbase is a spend management platform for businesses with 100-5,000 employees. It is used to control spending, close the books faster, and manage financial risk. Airbase’s software combines accounts payable automation, expense management, and corporate cards into a package for employees, accounting teams, and vendors. It integrates into popular general ledgers including NetSuite, and Sage Intacct.

Airbase's approach to guided procurement is to ensure that all purchases — from initial requests to payment and reconciliation — make it easy for employees to buy what they need while giving all necessary stakeholders in the loop. Airbase’s approach to spend management aims to bring efficiency to complex business processes and accounting needs like support for multi-subsidiaries, multi-currency, and purchase orders. Flexible intake forms and approval workflows ensure stakeholder oversight across multiple buying scenarios.

Our company uses Airbase to implement, manage, track and report on employee business expenses related to spend. Airbase serves as a one-tool-fits-all approach to our expense tracking and management, particularly as it relates to corporate cards and travel, and gives us full visibility and control over that process, saving us time and money.
  • Integrates well with our AMEX account for monitoring and controlling corporate card usage.
  • Their reimbursement module is outstanding in helping us more quickly manage that process for our employees for things like mileage.
  • Airbase support is top notch when we require additional assistance with the module.
  • The user interface can be non-intuitive at first, requiring additional clicks to get places you need to go.
  • Currently don't have ability to set up recurring payments; we have to submit individual expenses each month.
  • Needs more rollup reporting for expense groups, such as all expenses associated with one trip.
Airbase is best suited for finance departments that are looking to really reign in their company's spending processes; to not only get a holistic view of where, when and how employee expense spending occurs, but to make decisions and fine tune company policies and procedures centered on these business activities.
  • Corporate card tracking
  • Reimbursement management
  • Financial reporting on expense spending
  • With Airbase, we are able to cut down on costly late fees with total insight into spending limits
  • With approval workflows, we're able to cut down on uneccesary spending that can plague a budget
  • With Airbase's Support Team, we feel like true partners
After bidding out several vendors, we arrived at Airbase as our solution, as it seemed to be a better fit for our sized company that Paycom or Concur, which we deemed as more expensive and solutions for larger companies. Airbase was very fine tuned to our needs and made us feel important despite our size, which albeit a small consideration, is huge for us as a family-owned company.

Our finance team is the main department that uses Airbase, but our entire organization has implemented it to get a tighter grasp on our corporate spending. The software has improved how we manage payments to vendors by streamlining the payment approval process. Overall, it has created peace of mind now that we have better visibility into our corporate spending.
  • We really like that virtual cards can be created for each specific vendor.
  • It is super user-friendly and has been easy for our team to adopt; minimum to no training required!
  • It would be nice to have a mobile app as nice as the web app.
  • We would like to see Airbase evolve into a product that can help manage the entire purchase cycle, not just the purchase request.
For a fast-growing company that is looking to both better manage its corporate spend, but not slow it down, this is the perfect product. We wanted software that assured that payments were secure and were not exceeding certain thresholds. Still, we also wanted to streamline the approval process so that employees were not waiting around to get the approvals needed to do their jobs. Airbase helped on both fronts.
  • Airbase gives us better protection against fraud and erroneous charges.
  • We can process and pay vendors quicker, which has improved our relationships with some of our best suppliers.
Airbase had more robust payment options and a stronger mobile app than Spendesk. We like the digital credit cards offered that at the time Spendesk did not provide. Spendesk is a European company, so they are more established there than the United States. With Airbase being a US company, we felt like we may receive better support here in the States with them.
The customer support offered by Airbase has been top-notch; we could not have asked for anything more. They were accommodating during the onboarding process. They have always been quick to respond to any issue that we have faced. We get the sense that they are well-run and organized company.
