Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
If you have a remote workforce and want to save time and/ or inconvenience for employees by eliminating expense reports, this is a great product. You lose a little control over expenses but we just created a policy in our employee handbook to clarify the misuse of funds and set category restrictions on the card. If you have everyone relying on this, you can have one person make a large purchase that depletes all of the funds. A free transfer takes 2 days but an immediate transfer to correct no funds has a fee ($30 for my bank).
Bento for Business is a poorly run company that has horrible customer service. The signup process is extremely difficult which is backed by demanding staff. When staff is asked why documentation is denied, they will simply deny your application. These folks down at Bento for Business are not to be messed with as they will deny your application also. The free trial is a must have for their service as they couldn't charge for such service.
Bento for Business is great for businesses where employers are wary of giving out credit cards to employees with unlimited spending. Because Bento is a prepaid debit card, this automatically puts a limit on how much employees can spend. There is also no concern about credit card bills being paid on time because of this.
Bento for Business provides employee expense cards with spend controls that allow business owners to control where, when and how much employees can spend. This solution includes a dashboard that pivots data by employee, card, category, date and tag.
