Pros: Best customer support <3

Very smooth and user-friendly design

Custom Approval flow which is great when you go on vacations - you can really delegate the payment validation.

Cons: Cannot be used with existing corporate cards.

Overall: We implemented Spendesk as soon as we heard from them for my compan Hivy.

Hivy is a Saas helping Office Managers to answer every employee needs.

What was the problem I was facing at Hivy? Well few corporate cards, not enough agility in the team when we needed to buy stuff online.

Spendesk was the perfect tool to make my team move faster.

I used Spendesk's product since the beginning - I love the fact that each time I have a question on the product, they quickly get back to me and do whatever is needed to solve my problem.

That's what I call customer support :)

Recommendations to other buyers: The virtual cards system is very nice for online purchases. Now they even provide smart prepaid Mastercard which can be used when you are on the field which is super useful.

Pros: Superb UX, Analytical coding, greatest Xero integration ever, no more corporate credit card, no more credit card reconciliation + I can empower my teammates and make them responsible for their budget + I am in control of my expenses without spending too much time in painfull approval workflow.

Cons: I want to use it for all my subsidiaries

OCR please ?

A dedicated email than I can use to forward my receipts directly to the solution would be great too

Overall: Time saving, seamless approval workflow, team management, Xero integration

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.

Pros: issue 1 card per subscription with budgets

autonomy given to the other guys in my teams -> they can do the purchases themselves and I can use the customized approval flow to delegate the validation

Cons: I am the one not putting my invoices on the platform now and my accountant knows exactly that this is not on one of my employees' side

Overall: Forest is a Saas company. As any saas company we have a lot of online spending : IT, subscriptions (git, adobe, etc) or travel expenses to visit our customers.

We had only 1 credit card (mine) B.S (as Before Spendesk :p) which was used for every subscription leading to problems. I could not have a clear view on all my subscriptions ! I was also blocked because of spending monthly limit...

Using Spendesk helped me to control each and every one of my subscription + no monthly limit.

I also use Spendesk for all my online spending and don't lose time at the end of the month chasing for invoices (something which is time-consuming and that I hate on a personal level).

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have problems with your subscriptions or only a few credit cards in your company, Spendesk is worth trying !

Pros: Super easy to use, save us a lot of time, hurray for the copy-paste option!

Just really convenient to clic on a button when I've reached the limit of spending.

Overall: Use both online card and plastic card. Both are very useful to me. It allows me to stop using the usual Business MasterCard.

Recommendations to other buyers: Can't wait to be able to download the picture of the invoice directly on my phone after the purchase.

Pros: As a sales manager, I travel all the time, and a week of tickets can be a real pain to upload on any platform regardless of its friendlyness. What I love about spendesk is that you just got to take a picture of the payment, by the time you receive the printed ticked you usually have received the nofitifcation in your mobile.

The next level would be to just forget the receipts.

Cons: I need a defult for my expenses, as they usually revolve around the same possibilities, so that whenever i had to change anything, i could just modify the default option.

Overall: Simplicity with a potential to be too good to be true

Pros: From an accountant point of view, it allows very easy follow-up for expenses and a great overview of missing receipts.

On classic accounts statements, you have few or no information about the expenses. Since our credit card was used by and for different departments in our company, it required me a lot of time to follow expenses and identify for what and for who the expense was. Very painful!

Spendesk completely solved this problem.

Cons: Honestly I don't see real cons as far as it goes. It's more about new features which would be great to be implemented.

Overall: note: can't tell about "value for money".

I use spendesk mainly as an accountant, sometimes as administrator or requester.

Cons: Some websites, not much, doesn't accept virtual card

Overall: With employees of 13 different time zones, manage their needs and expenses were a puzzle..

Pros: I love how quickly I understood the product. I didn't even need to be onboarded: everything felt very intuitive, very early on. Whenever I need to make a business expense, I don't even have to think about it twice, Spendesk makes it a breeze.

Cons: There's really little to dislike! It sometimes (but rarely) doesn't work on all payment systems but I know they're working on that.
