Overall Satisfaction with Emburse SpringAhead

Emburse SpringAhead is being used for time and expense, keeping management in a DCAA compliant capacity. Every employee is required to submit a timecard at least every Friday and at most on a daily basis. We have received mediocre feedback on the platform and are currently looking at other options out there to switch to.
  • Review tab
  • Approval tab
  • Expense tab
  • Automated reminders to employees would be great
  • A more modern and up-to-date user interface
  • The approvals system for projects vs. users could use some work
  • Time
  • Expense
  • Approvals
  • They fit the purpose of time keeping and expense reports but it could always be a whole lot better
  • QuickBooks Time (formerly TSheets)
TSheets and SpringAhead are different in a lot of ways, but at the end of the day, you should look for better alternatives to both of their platforms. Both are priced higher than a lot of other alternatives out there that will likely give you a better user interface and more bang for your buck.

Would you buy Emburse SpringAhead again?


Emburse SpringAhead is well suited for a small team that doesn't need a whole lot of customization. If your team is looking for more customization, you should probably look elsewhere, like we are about to do. Since being acquired by Emburse, they raised the prices while not making the product any better. They are actually more expensive than a lot of the competition.
