Overall Satisfaction with Expensify

Expensify allows our team to upload expenses and get reimbursed. It's a website, it doesn't require any downloads and is a quick way to create and submit expense reports. There is also a free version which is all our small company has needed for the past three years.
  • Ease of use: it's easy to learn Expensify, the layout and navigation are easy to follow.
  • Reminders: you can set reminders for yourself to submit reports daily, weekly or monthly.
  • Uploading receipts: you can scan receipts on your phone or take pictures and attach.
  • The site occasionally has a glitch where it thinks a duplicate receipt is being uploaded, and it requires deleting the expense and re-entering. This happens once every 3 or 4 reports.
  • The concierge offers popups with helpful tips. It reminds me a bit of the old paperclip on Microsoft Word. Like that paperclip however, I could see it annoying some users. I haven't found the ability to turn it off.
  • It's a little confusing that expenses can be uploaded and saved onto the site, or instantly uploaded for only the report you're working on. I haven't quite figured out how why I would save the receipts on the site instead of the one-time use that I've been doing.
  • It's had a positive impact because as a small business, keeping costs down is imperative. Expensify's free service has saved us a lot of money over the past few years, and it's allowed for quick and simple reimbursement to sales reps.
  • It's saved sales reps time, because it's quick and easy to use. Expense reports are done in our company on a monthly basis and can be a tedious process, but with Expensify it's really not.
Concur was a great product as well but Expensify offers the ability to quickly upload expenses and submit reports just the same. There is no free version with Concur, so for a small business that's interested in keeping costs down I would highly recommend Expensify.
We've never needed to contact live support for Expensify, but the concierge feature offers tips and answered any questions that we've had.

For a small business the free site is terrific. It offers a full expense reporting function for reps and includes everything that a comparable paid service would. It also offers commenting, where the manager can write comments on the expense report, and the ability to save and print reports.
