How to Use

To use this web app, users first must create a new account and define the basic structure of company finances, expense policies, and approval workflows. All of this is done directly from a web browser window, without the need to download a standalone local app and distribute it to all local business computers.

After the basic setup is finished, employees are free to start logging their expenses either manually or by scanning receipts. All the digitalized receipts will be distributed to the secure and dynamic databases that the service will analyze in real-time, with automatic checks for policy compliance and financial trends. A wide variety of rules and company policies can be set up for easier daily workflows. For example, approved expenses can be reimbursed directly through the system or synced with your accounting software.

It is important to note that this cloud platform is fully capable of integrating with a wide array of popular external accounting platforms, including QuickBooks, Office 365, Zoho Books, Amazon Business, and more.

User Interface

The user interface of this cloud platform is clean, intuitive, and customizable, enabling users to quickly learn how to effectively navigate it straight through any modern internet browser app. The main dashboard provides a quick overview of pending and approved expenses, while the menu allows easy navigation to different features. The basic navigation is done via 10 main tabs located on the left side of the app – Home, Trips, Expenses, Reports, Advances, Purchase Requests, Cards, Approvals, Analytics, and My Settings.

The receipt scanning and expense logging features are straightforward and easy to use, with trip sections even including detailed information breakdowns about Flights, Hotels, Car Rentals, and associated reports or advances.

The bottom of the app features streamlined access to collaboration features such as icons for Chats, Channels, and Contacts tools.
