Spendesk Overview

What is Spendesk?

We're on a mission to help businesses everywhere spend smarter. With flexible payments, approvals, automated receipt capture and real-time spend insights, finance teams can decentralize operational spending across the business without any loss of control or visibility. Employees benefit from streamlined expense and invoice management through the Spendesk website and app.

"I know in real time where the money is spent, and I don’t have to lend out the company’s credit card anymore. What a relief!" — Xavier Haffreingue (COO @Tinyclues)

With Spendesk, you can say goodbye to:

- Risky company card sharing
- Time-consuming expense reports
- Untraceable spending trails
- Overly complex toolstacks

Having all employee spending centralised in one place, means more visibility, more automation and less time spent on the tedious admin tasks. Finance stays in control, while employees are empowered to pay when they need.

Pros

It greatly improves the purchasing workflow, all the way through to payments and accounting. It decentralises purchasing, while keeping control of the whole process with the decision makers. It's very intuitive to use - I never have to train new employees on Spendesk. The customer support level is the best I've ever seen, and they are constantly adding new features and improving the existing ones.

Cons

It costs money. But compared to the employee time saved by using it, as well as the added value compared to manual processes, it's money very well spent.

Response from Spendesk

Thank you Mark for your kind review. We are really happy to free you and your team from the hassle of paying at work!

Paying all over the US when travelling. Helps with keeping track of company expenses.

Pros

Easy to mangae/upload your receipts when you are travelling.

Cons

-Spendesk card doesn't work in many places (Trader Joe's for example)
-With the app you can only take photos from receipts. It would be a great improvement if you could make a photo that recognizes the receipt (adapts the borders automatically) and that converts it to a pdf.

Response from Spendesk

Dear Ferdinand, thank you for your review. The good news is our new mobile app will be launching soon, and includes a new feature to automatically crop receipt photos. Sorry to hear about the issues you had overseas, we've passed your comments on to our product team to investigate further.

Having credit card as main payment method for our online providers was a mess. Spendesk gave us absolut control about our expenses, reporting and more over... authmatization! Never more share credit card data to employees.
