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!

Those familiar with QuickBooks Online and Expensify will be aware that early this year we switched over to Intuit’s new API. With the new integration, we significantly reduced the amount of time customers spent exporting from Expensify to QuickBooks Online, improved the stability of the integration, and added support for vendor bills and billable expenses. Overall, our customers loved this new connection and took full advantage of it.  Continue Reading…

If you’ve ever done an expense report on Microsoft Excel, then you probably know how much it sucks. Like bottom-of-the-barrel, I-need-a-drink-to-get-through-this type of suck.

Why? Why do you do this to yourself over and over, time and time again?

  • Is it because you’re a contractor who only does expense reports once every few months?
  • Is it because you’re a startup of 10 and don’t want to pay to ease your pain?
  • Is it because you’re a company of 30 that is not quite ready to scale, so you’ll hold out until you do?
  • Is it because you’re actually masochistic and kind of enjoy a monthly dose of pain?

CEO Robert Guarino of 5 Napkin Burger

“I am lucky. When I travel for work, my job is to eat, drink, teach and learn…. not sort receipts. I am happy to let Expensify handle the mundane while I do what I do what I love.” — CEO Robert Guarino of 5 Napkin Burger

The burger experience is no longer One Size Fits All. The art of grabbing a burger has found its top shelf. Those with discerning appetites, surrounded by less-than-satisfying options, demand more — quality, diversity, and a custom cocktail all in an engaging atmosphere. If this sounds like you, then 5 Napkin Burger has you covered.  Continue Reading…

The story goes something like this:

Girl gets a phone call. Girl is invited to go out. It’s raining. Girl doesn’t want to melt in the rain. Mom kicks Girl out of the house. Mom orders Girl to go out and have fun. Girl goes out, meets a group from a San Francisco company called Expensify. Apparently, the entire company is working and backpacking for a whole month in Croatia. Girl laughs with fascination and some disbelief but Girl doesn’t dwell on that because Girl is absolutely fascinated with the energy, drive, and passion each person exudes when talking about the company, coworkers, the CEO, and basically just how much they love what they do.  Continue Reading…

This post was first written for my website – you can find the original post here.

We’ve talked about open-sourcing some of our tools for a while, but talking and doing are different things. Having a small team developing an awesome service means we’re constantly busy and behind on many of our tasks, making it difficult to dedicate time for things that seem “less valuable”. As a result, I decided to set aside some time in the last few weeks to do this project and just get it done.

Here are few scattered thoughts around open sourcing our Segmented Control widget.  Continue Reading…

myths about great leaders expensify

To be a great leader, you can’t just put on a mask…

So much reading on the internet today revolves around what makes a good leader, what characteristics a good leader has, and ultimately, how to be a good leader.  What we forget is that leaders are inherently part of a team, and without a team of supporters, leaders don’t exist.  A true leader relies on his or her peers and surroundings to help be the most effective they can be.  Bulldoze over these myths and avoid common misconceptions when trying to identify the leaders at your organization.  You’ll be glad you did.  Continue Reading…
