Things we can’t keep to ourselves because IT’S JUST THAT EXCITING!

Jonah and TJ working at Expensify.

Across all teams, we’re building not just a best-in-class product, but also a world-class company.

Part of what makes Expensify such an amazing place to work is that we’ve brought together a group of people that truly believes in the company’s mission and vision. Since 2008, we’ve grown the team from a handful of people to ~100 full time employees while only promoting from within. Every single member of our leadership team has started from the ground level and earned the respect of the organization before being recognized with any formal title; part of our vision is to keep that tradition for as long as we reasonably can.

On top of that, over 75% of our employees have opted to receive some portion of their compensation in stock options. Continue Reading…

Hey there, it’s Matt from the Success Coach team in Expensify. Straight off the success from our Real Time Expense Report feature launch, you can now import Items from QuickBooks Online and use these Items in place of categories for expenses on your policies. Items are an excellent way to allow for greater reporting in QBO.

To quote Deborah Defer, Senior Director of Accounting Services at BDO:

“Small businesses may have the need for additional reporting.  Utilizing multiple feature sets of QuickBooks Online with invoicing customers, classing, items, locations, and items on vendor bills provides the ability to create customized  reports.  This is huge!”

Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve written because we’ve been hard at work, but I’m very happy to take the wraps off our latest feature (or really, series of features): Realtime Expense Reports. I know I’ve been hyping this up for a long time, and you’re probably wondering why.

I honestly think this is the most significant development in the expense reporting space since we introduced SmartScan. That might sound bombastic – especially for something that’s easy to overlook if you’re not paying attention – but let me explain.

(By the way, if you’d rather watch this in action, sign up for our live walk through next week here or watch the video below.)

“Open booking”, “invisible spend”, “leakage” — these are terms that cause travel managers to break out into cold sweats.  And with good reason: employees who book outside the “managed” travel system miss out on negotiated rates, quietly slip through the travel policy cracks, or find themselves out of luck when SHTF.

Combating this has always been hard, and the explosion in “unmanaged” travel options hasn’t helped.  In fact, it’s steadily increased the temptation for employees to go rogue, making it harder than ever for travel managers to provide control travel spend and execute on duty of care obligations.  Thankfully, help is on the way.  Continue Reading…
