Things we can’t keep to ourselves because IT’S JUST THAT EXCITING!
Expensify is thrilled to announce that Right Networks will offer Expensify to all users of its new Business and Application Cloud at no additional cost!
Previously, Right Networks charged a hosting fee for using certain apps, including Expensify, on top of the app’s subscription fee. With this announcement, Right Networks has eliminated the hosting fee, so now users can use their favorite apps without an additional fee.
We have a long history of teaming up with Xero to simplify the accounting process, and we’re excited to announce another way Expensify is working with Xero to streamline your workflow: introducing Expensify in Xero HQ!
Xero HQ is a one-stop hub for Xero accountants and bookkeepers to manage all their clients’ needs in one place. When combined with Expensify, accountants experience even more efficiency as it automates the receipt tracking and expense management process, giving you more time to provide superior service to clients.

Though Xerocon London 2017 came to a close two weeks ago, our team is still buzzing about what an incredible event it was (only more six weeks until Xerocon Austin, but who’s counting?)! Kudos to the Xero team for making this year’s conference the biggest and best yet. Throughout the event, it was clear that the entire ecosystem continues to grow exponentially, promoting the value of automation for both accountants and their clients. Here are some of the biggest takeaways we had from the show! Continue Reading…
2017 has been the year of partnerships for Expensify: We’ve launched a number of ReceiptBurner integrations, an AirPlus Partnership, and now we’ve joined 9 Spokes as a featured widget in their data dashboard!
The newly-launched 9 Spokes dashboard offers users key insights and a real-time analysis of their business data, allowing users to see the full picture of where their business stands from both a financial and growth perspective.
Remember when you turned thirteen and all of a sudden you couldn’t stop growing? Your ankles peered awkwardly out from the bottom of your pants and your wrists got cold peeking out from the sleeves of that middle school hoodie. Well, that’s kind of what 2017 has looked like at Expensify, only less awkward and more exciting! We’re in the midst of a growth spurt, and we’re thrilled to share some numbers from the first half of the year.
If you’ll recall David’s last newsletter and blog post, Expensify has been growing rapidly in the last six months, and we’ve seen the toll it’s been taking from a customer support perspective:
It has been a busy, busy year. Just a couple months ago I mentioned we had 35,000 customers — well now it’s 43,000. We’re on track to add more customers in six months than we’ve added in the past *six years*. This has placed a pretty serious strain on our system and people, and I really appreciate your patience as we ramp up both to sustain this rate of growth as the “new norm”.
As the team discussed additional ways to offer timely support to our users, we realized one very important thing: we lacked a communal space for users to connect with other users, ask questions, trade tips, and share experiences in our common quest to build an efficient expense management workflow that works for everyone.
