Overall Satisfaction with Rydoo (formerly Xpenditure)

Our organization uses Rydoo to manage and process expenses across all departments. As an international business with many satellite offices, our company supports a lot of business travel. Our sales team travels frequently, and the entire company travels twice a year for company retreats. We use Rydoo to pay employees their travel per diems and expense specific work-related travel, meals, phone bills, office purchases, etc. We also use Rydoo to reimburse specific perks (e.g., gym membership).
  • The interface is very friendly and easy to use. Expenses can be dry and confusing, but Rydoo keeps everything simple, visually clean, and easy to navigate. The dashboard offers a great overview so you can easily see where all of your money is.
  • There are multiple ways to quickly add an expense via upload, webcam, or email. I prefer to add expenses manually, but when I've tried the other methods, they usually accurately fill out the expense fields based on the provided receipt.
  • Email correspondence is very good. I like automatically receiving "Reimburse report generated" emails that allow me to download my report and keep track of my expenses.
  • This is minor, but I wish that when I clicked "Expenses," I could set the default to show "All" and not "To do." I like to quickly see the status of my submitted but not-yet-controlled expenses.
  • It would be great if I could crop, highlight, and otherwise edit receipts within Rydoo. For example, I get reimbursed for my phone bill, but I'm on a shared plan. When I upload my receipt it contains bills for the other members of my plan too. I always have to highlight the portion that belongs to me. I do this before uploading to Rydoo.
  • Sometimes the software runs slowly. Sometimes if a receipt is uploaded, it can take a long time for Rydoo to automatically parse the content and take you to the expense creation form. (Once it's populated, though, expense creation is very fast and easy.)
  • Rydoo saves time, which saves money. I'm able to make and check expenses quickly.
  • Rydoo was easy to learn and integrate. It didn't require lengthly training so it smoothed the onboarding process for new hires.
  • Rydoo centralizes internal communication about specific expenses, since you can leave comments.
I have never used any other expense software, and I was not part of the team that selected or implemented Rydoo. (It was already well established by the time I was hired and onboarded.) Unfortunately, I don’t think I can comment on this question as a result.
As a user, I can't think of many scenarios where Rydoo would be inappropriate. From my perspective, it's a great fit for both small and medium sized companies. It's easy for non-technical people to use. Some months I use Rydoo frequently and others hardly at all, and I find that Rydoo is always well suited for my needs. Perhaps Rydoo is better suited for less complex expenses, but I can't speak to that personally and am not an admin myself.
