It’s no secret that since we opened our doors in 2008, we have relied on our users and early adopters for feedback, which has heavily influenced the way we’ve grown. In the early days, David would email anyone who signed up with Expensify asking for comments, suggestions, and feedback — both positive and negative — and that has allowed us to develop a very loyal base early on. Thanks to the early feedback, we were able to create an employee-driven, bottom-up business model that provides easy-to-use software for the employee while still providing all the features needed by the CTO.  Continue Reading…

Hey there! My name is Conor, one of the Success Coaches at Expensify. Ours is a new team, dedicated to ensuring expense reporting happiness for our customers. This week, we’re proud to bring users of our QuickBooks Online integration a great new feature: export to credit card sub-accounts!

This is great for nearly everybody: SAP, Concur shareholders, and especially for us.  As for Concur customers… well the future just got a bit cloudier (and not in a good way).  They probably feel locked into a long-term contract with a company whose focus has suddenly shifted away from their needs, and I’m sure that doesn’t feel great.  Expensify exists to help people feel great about their expense reports, so in light of the news we’re offering a very special deal:  Continue Reading…

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to live with 30 of your coworkers?

For Expensify, that’s crossed off our bucket list! We do our annual (totally optional) offshore abroad, but it’s never been on this level in size and scope (not to mention, we don’t all live together under one roof on the offshore). Last week, we spent seven days in the Upper Peninsula, Michigan eating, working, sleeping, and then some; fun was just the tip of the iceberg.  Continue Reading…
