Whether you work at a startup, a large corporation, or something in between, the end of the month always means one thing: it’s time to get those expense reports in!
People often consider expense reporting to be a pain in the elbow, and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to make expense reports suck less. Using Expensify can help significantly reduce the overall time it takes to finish a report. Even better, pair it with an incremental behavioral change and you might actually look forward to submitting your expense report every month (we can dream right?). Continue Reading…
No matter who you are, no matter how careless you are, you can use Expensify.
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:
That’s all for now, but stay tuned to our blog for new updates to our site as they happen.
Welcome to the new Expensify blog!
This will be the place to check for the latest Expensify announcements, as well unique insights into the world of expense reporting. We hope you subscribe to our RSS feed and follow our progress as we work towards our ultimate goal of making expense reports painless and easy.
Today I did my first real expense report with Expensify. I know, I know, I’ve been doing them all along, here and there. But there’s a huge difference between “testing” and “using.” Having really “used” it for the first time, I have to say, I’m really quite proud of what we’ve built. This thing really works, really well.
Basically, I’m as lazy as anybody else. I put things off. I buy things with a few different cards, am undisciplined with email and paper receipts, pay cash unnecessarily. I’m as bad as anybody else. But having just processed about six months of backlogged expenses, I’ve learned a few lessons:
Basically, all that stuff I’m out promising people — I always knew it was true, but now I *feel* it. I know it’s true, and it really is quite amazing.
That said, there’s a long way to go. I’m incredibly happy with where Expensify is now. But it’s clear there are a lot of ways we can do even better:
And of course a million more small things. I have countless ideas how to improve it further, to get ever closer to the holy grail of “one click expense report” for all users in all scenarios.
But even right now, in its current state, it’s pretty amazing. Give it a shot and I think you’ll agree. (And if you don’t, please, please write email@example.com and tell me why.)
Expensify truly does expense reports that don’t suck. Whew.

Anyway, the Expensify bus just keeps on truckin’, and we’re always making things a little bit better. So why not submit that expense report you’ve been putting off? You could be minutes away from emptying your pockets of receipts and filling them with money!
I know we’ve been quiet here on the Expensify front, but not for lack of things to say: just waiting for the right time to say them. Regardless, I’ll break radio silence to share an interesting piece of news: Expensify was recommended by Inc. Magazine as the “first class” way to manage expenses over a couple other products. (Which were listed as “business class” and “coach”, respectively. Ouch!) Check it out: January issue, page 44. What a nice New Year’s treat!
