Expensify - 10 Years of Expense Reports That Don't Suck!

Expensify customer Hubdoc has (temporarily) handed the bookkeeping reins to a novice – Senior Product Marketing Manager, Geoff Gualano.

As interim bookkeeper at Hubdoc, Geoff has been tasked with learning his way through the company’s bookkeeping tools (including Expensify) and using his fresh perspective to uncover workflow inefficiencies.

We chatted with Geoff about how he – as a first-time admin – used Expensify to manage Hubdoc’s receipt tracking and expense management process.

Just one year ago (almost to the day!), we launched our first round of receipt integrations. Our vision was to eliminate paper receipts by importing them into Expensify directly from the most commonly expensed merchants, such as Uber, HotelTonight, and Revel Systems POS. We added Lyft to the roster last week, and the receipt fire still burns! Here are our five newest receipt integrations, all focused on smoothing the pains of business travel:

It’s always a thrill ride when an Expensify customer becomes an Expensify partner, so buckle up!

Expensifiers at Pecana cafe in Montevideo, one of our favorite 10 AM spots

If you’re unfamiliar with our annual Expensify Offshore expeditions, we have a dedicated webpage here to help spark the flame! Otherwise, some tl;dr background:

  1. A complete Expensify Offshore spans four weeks, and occurs once per year. It is always opt-in, meaning any employee can elect not to attend, partially attend, or fully attend.
  2. The employees vote democratically on the destination, which at bare minimum must be internet-friendly and relatively easy on the wallet.
  3. The company coordinates and communicates the essentials, including general itineraries, to-and-from travel, basic lodging, and special events.
  4. Employees self-select to lead or support priority projects dictated by a mix of customer needs and personal interest. The projects are optional, supplementary to daily responsibilities, and ideally completed during the time abroad.

The Arrival

I was a couple days early to Expensify Offshore 2017 in Uruguay.

After six feature films in the nosebleeds of Copa Airlines and a taxi ride at the mercy of Google Translate, I stumbled out onto Montevideo’s Calle Blandengues around 2 AM local time. Historically, this was a Jewish neighborhood and absolutely worth a morning wander, so I left my curiosities for the moment in favor of meeting my Airbnb host, Ramiro.
