Expensify’s Year in Review

James —  December 18, 2018 — Leave a comment

2018-year

Hopefully you’re settling in for the holiday season with a warm cup of cocoa, a list of Netflix specials, and a toasty fire fueled by burning receipts. In the meantime, we’re here to let you know that 2018 was our best year yet – we’re growing faster than ever, expanding our ExpensifyApproved! program like crazy, and building out new partnerships around the globe.

Here’s an abbreviated recap of our year so you can get back to doing what you love:

  • We announced four updated plans – Track, Submit, Collect, and Control – so pretty much anyone can incorporate Expensify into their daily workflow. We’re talking self-employed hustlers, freelancers, contractors… even employees of companies who don’t currently use Expensify. Try the plan that’s right for you today – for free!
  • Our ExpensifyApproved! Partner Program grew to include 35% of the top 100 U.S. accounting firms and 70% of the top 10 U.K. firms. In tandem, we built out ExpensifyApproved! University as a one-stop training and certification program for any accountant or bookkeeper who wants to master Expensify and pass along the benefits to their clients.
  • We doubled down on product features that make audit and compliance easy for any Expensify admin. Our Reconciliation Dashboard is the go-to tool for realtime visibility across company card transactions and an invaluable feature around month-end close. Concierge DoubleCheck is an ever-present, AI-powered audit and compliance buddy that automatically flags duplicate receipts, risky expenses, and more.
  • Partnerships-wise, we were named NetSuite’s Innovation Partner of the Year and teamed up with corporate travel management startup TripActions, HR platform Gusto, and VAT recovery providers Global VaTax and Taxback International for streamlined integrations.

Hey there, I have some news to share that I think you’re going to like (and if not you, then definitely someone you know).  In short: Expensify has just launched new plans for individuals at only $5 per month! As crazy as it sounds, this is by far our most commonly requested feature, but it has taken us 10 years to get around to it. Continue Reading…

Global_VaTax--Taxback_International@2x

It’s now easier than ever for your company to get a value-added tax (VAT) refund on international expenses. Just connect Expensify to Global VaTax or Taxback International and your expenses flow automatically across for VAT analysis, submission, and recovery. Even better, depending on the country and type of VAT, your company could be eligible for a VAT refund on expenses going back as far as 5 years!

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.

Duplicate expenses are a pain for everyone, so we’re finally doing something about it.

The Problem

Whether intentional, or not, duplicate expenses are an issue. Duplicate expenses create more work for both the submitter and the approver. They are a core task in auditing to be sought out and destroyed!

The Solution
