Expensify Announces Funding, New Features

Yesterday, at SF New Tech in San Francisco, we publicly announced that we’ve taken on $1M of funding in a seed round.  This is great for us as it means that we’ll be around for a long time to come, and will be able to do much more for our users in terms of delivering the features they want and making expense reports suck even less.

We also announced some new features as well.  First off, we now have a Salesforce application so that Salesforce users can do their expense reports from within the Salesforce website.  This will be a great new feature for people on the go that rely on Salesforce as their CRM system.  Here’s a screenshot of the Salesforce application:

The next new feature that we announced is Quickbooks integration.  We’ve heard from so many of our users that Quickbooks is the accounting solution for their business, so we’re making it as easy as possible to integrate Expensify into your current accounting workflow.

Finally, we’ve also announced a new API for developers.  If you’re a developer and would like to add expense reporting to your website, you can use us as the platform.  We’ve created two ways for you to integrate:

  1. Whitelabel API:  The whitelabel API allows you to include all of Expensify’s functionality onto your own website by including an IFRAME onto your page.  Then we work with you to style Expensify to look like your site using CSS, and it’s all done!  A full expense reporting solution for your users
  2. Web Service API:  The web service API is much like traditional APIs, in that you make requests to our server and we return data to you.  It’s up to you to present this data to the user, so you can make entirely different interfaces than the standard Expensify interface.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned to our blog for new updates to our site as they happen.
