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…

You Autocomplete Me

While most expenses come into Expensify using our magic SmartScan feature, or via a credit card import, there are still some occasions where you might need to manually enter expenses. In case you ever have to do this, we’ve just made it a little bit easier, using merchant auto-complete.

“How do I use this amazing feature?”
Well, dear reader, just start typing the merchant name into our web app, and we’ll automatically fill in the most common matches. Pro-Tip: We’ll also do ‘fuzzy’ matching, so if you make a typo in the merchant name we’ll pick that up too.

Magic.

Autocomplete for merchant name is now available for all users. Have any feedback or amazing puns? Email help@expensify.com.

This great feature allows you to export transactions to specific company card sub accounts in NetSuite.

Our great two-way integration with NetSuite already supports exporting to journal entries and expense reports, and with this update we’re supporting greater flexibility and enabling our customers to work even more effectively.

What do you do when you love something so much and want to change the current industry standard?

You start a company (obviously).

For us, we had a vision to rid the world of expense reports that suck. For the guys at Chubbies Shorts, they envisioned an alternative, retro glam lifestyle from decades past. Two completely different businesses in every single way, but both ideas were born from a desire to change the status quo.

Coming up with a company tagline isn't always easy

Coming up with a tagline isn’t always easy…

“Expense reports that don’t suck!”

People often chuckle when they hear our tagline – it’s memorable, it’s catchy, and it captures a feeling that they’ve probably experienced before. As an occasional advisor to growing startups, I often get questions about product branding during our early days. Where did our tagline come from? How did we decide on this one? Here are three quick points to consider: Continue Reading…
