Overall Satisfaction with Expensify

Expensify allows our team to quickly enter expenses on their website. It solves the problem of having to submit expense reports manually or having to save receipts. You can save receipts on your cell phone and send them to Expensify or upload them when you are submitting reports. It's easy to use so it requires little training or setup time.
  • Submitting expenses. It's easy to enter an expense, choose a category, enter the dollar amount and submit it. That's about it.
  • Uploading receipts. You can send receipts to Expensify from your phone, or upload them from your computer.
  • Entering hours worked. It's simple to move from expenses over to timesheets to submit the hours that you've worked.
  • Keeping their political opinions out of it. I shouldn't be emailed and told to vote for a certain candidate like they chose to do before the presidential election. I didn't sign up for Fox News or CNN.
  • Uploading duplicate charges. Duplicate charges are flagged, but sometimes I have multiple expenses for the same dollar amount and the same company. To get around this, I change the cents a bit ($19.99 for one and $20.01 or another).
  • Every once in a while it gets a little buggy when uploading a receipt, and I have to press the back button and start again. This is pretty rare though.
  • Positive in that it has saved us time, so we can submit our expense reports and moved on to other tasks.
  • Positive in that it is easy to use, so we don't get frustrated updating expenses. We can do it and move on.
  • Positive in that it allows management to quickly accept and approve reports, saving them time as well.
I find Expensify easier to use than Avaza and Concur. With Expensify I like the user interface, and you only need to click on expenses or start a new report and you can start adding expenses. Avaza is more of a timesheet tool, where you select projects you are working on and enter hours. You can submit hours on Expensify and don't need to make as many selections, although Avaza allows administrators to add more details. I like Concur because it allows you to book travel as well, and I like the interface but from my understanding, it is more expensive.

Would you buy Expensify again?


Expensify is perfect for a small team or a small business. It's affordable (I believe there is even a free version) and it is very easy to submit reports and to teach others how to submit reports. For a larger business, a one-stop shop for travel and expenses might be a better option. Larger companies might want more analytics as well, although Expensify does allow you to run reports.
