Overall Satisfaction with Webexpenses

Webexpenses is used across the whole company. We use it for expense management, allowing employees to easily submit and receive reimbursement for their professional expenses.
  • Automatic approval of expenses within policy.
  • Providing a record of past expenses.
  • The UI for submitting a claim is quite painful – when attaching a receipt you always get an error dialog box rather than this being abstracted away.
  • The receipt upload functionality sometimes fails to work due to 'security problems', but then works fine when you try to re-upload a second time.
  • Submitting an expense will fail because you have missed a field in the form, but this won't be made obvious – meaning that you need to spend painful seconds hunting for the missing input.
There are some very basic UI problems with the tool. Failure states occur during expected operations (e.g. attaching a receipt to a claim), and empty fields that cause an inability to submit are not called out clearly. For the end user, it is a pretty painful, frustrating experience.
We use Webexpenses to automate expense approval when the expenses are within policy, and also to streamline the reimbursement process by ensuring that all relevant information is provided upfront.

For expense management, Webexpenses is fine but not extremely pleasant for the end user, as it creates regular frustration.
