Overall Satisfaction with Expensify

Expensify is easy and I was able to use it extensively on business trips, and while attending trade shows and startup conferences. I'm able to run reports and submit accurate numbers for approvals with receipts and such. It's mainly being used on an individual level, each person uses their own expense reporting system but some prefer Expensify due to the ease of use and cross-platform access. This helped us as an organization since a big portion of folks travel globally so a good app like Expensify is very handy in keeping track of expenses whether personal or for business. It also helps keep my budget in check.
  • Its excellent for helping you keep track of personal and business expenses all in the same application.
  • Cross-Platform support. I can work on a report on my iPhone then continue editing on my computer.
  • Great features like taking immediate pictures of receipts, ability to pull info from credit cards to easily import accurate data regardless of which card you use.
  • Creating reports is as easy as ever especially to send over for easy management approval all through the app. Can even export to store locally on your machine.
  • I'd like to see some integration with hotel and flight reservation tools like what we currently use with Concur.
  • Salesforce integration
  • Upgraded and modern UI
  • Multi-factor authentication leveraging SSO and TouchID perhaps to verify user for security purposes especially for business
  • Increased employee efficiency, easy usage
  • I would say it's more accepted amongst independant business folks or personal rather than corporate-wide acceptance.
  • Concur
Expensify and Conur do much overlapping in submitting expenses although there are some differences: Aesthetics web UI Expensify wins, mobile UI Concur wins. Overall pricing, I'm not really certain why our current company chose Concur but I personally prefer Expensify for its ease of setup, Concur is more involved. My previous company didn't mind Expensify. It seems like Concur looks a bit more old school. Expensify is a lot cheaper, but then again I can't weigh in on our decision-making process. Both solutions integrate with Salesforce which is great.
I personally love Expensify for keeping track of all my expenses, so I'm one of your free users. However I would prefer it if my current company switched to Expensify.
Expensify is easiest to use once you prepare for it prior to traveling or using it since it requires some setup to enter credit card info and getting used to storing in the cloud as some folks might or might not be too keen on storing in the cloud. But the best part is the fact you can access your data from everywhere.
