We’re less than two weeks away from ExpensiCon, where the industry’s biggest thought leaders and Expensify’s biggest partners will meet to share best practices, forge lasting relationships, and get a sneak peak at Expensify’s game-changing product roadmap. From our conversations with attendees, it sounds like we’re not the only ones who are looking forward to this amazing event! Hear from six attendees on what they’re looking forward to most at this four-day conference — and why it’s a can’t-miss event!

Tom Hood, CPA, CITP, CGMA; Chief Executive Officer of MACPA at ExpensiCon“Why am I super excited to be going to Expensicon II in Bora Bora? I get to spend four days living in the future of accounting with those who are shaping it. Expensify has assembled a collection of industry leaders, leading-edge firms, and innovative tech companies that I cannot wait to connect with and learn from each one. And the location sure beats an airport hotel!”

“ExpensiCon Maui was a fantastic experience that I thought would be hard to top, but can’t wait for Bora Bora! Two years ago in Maui, we learned about the history of Expensify and what made Expensify soar to the top of the industry. Those sessions were so helpful in shaping how we understand the industry, and I can’t wait expand on that through meeting and collaborating with with some of the best accounting and technology experts in the field again this year. I also can’t wait to learn about the new features and see the product roadmap so I can bring those back to our teams at GrowthForce!” Continue Reading…

We’ve put together a little recap of some of our favourite moments, learnings, and interactions we had during the week. Kudos to Intuit for hosting a brilliant event!

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…

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.

Just one year ago (almost to the day!), we announced ReceiptBurner. 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 ReceiptBurner 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!

We’ve partnered with Lyft to make expensing business rides automatic and touchless, like your favorite Sunday carwash. When your Lyft ride is complete, your ride receipt will automatically populate in Expensify for easy expensing – no clicks or taps necessary!
