How to Sell it To the Man 2.0

garrettmknight —  September 5, 2012 — 1 Comment

A little over a year ago we did a post entitled, How to Sell it to the Man. (The Man = your boss, their boss, your accountant, your colleagues, etc.) Since we didn’t spend the last year just twiddling our thumbs, selling Expensify to the Man is even easier for you and we thought we’d give you some updated ammo for the good fight.

Expensify is easier on your wallet.

Expensify vs. our Competitors 

Expensify bills $5/$10 (depending on plan) per active submitter per month, plus the first two for free. What’s the difference? The “active submitter” part. We only charge you for a user if they actually used the product that month – that is, if they submitted an expense report. At the end of the month, no matter how many employees you have signed up, you will only be billed for your active submitters. Each active submitter can submit an unlimited number of expense reports at no extra charge.

Compare this to your current expense reporting costs and you’ll find that in the overwhelming majority of cases our price is simply unbeatable.

Expensify vs. your wasted time

Don’t have an expense reporting software? Using Excel or cut/paste documents? Let’s do the math. Your salesperson earns 50K per year, which translates to roughly $20/hour. It takes them 4 hours and a lot of frustration to fill out expense reports each month.  That’s $20/hour x 4 hours = $80. If it takes them 20 minutes to submit a report with Expensify, that’s $20/hour x 0.3hrs + $5 or $10 for Expensify = $11 or $16, frustration-free.

Expensify is easier on your employees.

Stop making your employees dread that envelope stuffed with receipts that just sits on their desks. No more endless papercuts as they scramble to find that one report your accountant wants to review, NOW.

  • Accessibility: Submit, access, edit, and submit all of your expense information to your Expensify account from anywhere with an internet connection (mobile or web).

  • Organization: Filter your expenses, receipts, and reports by date, type, category, and a multitude of other parameters for quick lookup.
  • Security: We use bank-level security to keep your sensitive financial data safe.

Expensify is easier on your accountants.

Does your accounting department use NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, Sage, another accounting package? Not a problem, Expensify allows you to export expenses and reports into custom CSV formats, acceptable by your accounting package. Perhaps they use QuickBooks? Awesome, because Expensify connects to your QB account to sync everything back and forth. Save your accountants hours of manual input, save your company money.

Bonus: We also integrate with your payroll solution!

We’re happier to provide you support

You will also have email access to one of the best support teams in the business. With a 24 hour turn around time on emails (and usually quicker), we can get any issues you have sorted out quickly.

Care for a second opinion?

Check out our Twitter feed some time. I don’t know about you, but this is the first company I have worked at and been comfortable saying THAT to a potential user. Our users can’t seem to stop showering us with love! With the usual state of public discourse towards companies being rather negative this is something we are quite proud of.

Do you have a complex, outrageous expense reporting setup?

Not only can Expensify manage it, we can make it simpler and more intuitive for you, your employees, and your accountants. Email our support team and tell us about your current setup. We’ll tell you how we can make expense reporting a quicker, easier necessary evil.
