Expend + QuickBooks = Expenses at the speed of YOU!

We've hit yet another exciting landmark moment at Expend towers, as we recently became the first company in our sector to pass the QuickBooks partner app review process. Now even more businesses using QuickBooks can provide their employees with smart business prepaid cards as a viable alternative to passing the company credit card around the office.

Employees can feel empowered to manage all their spending and other expenses whilst providing CFO's, small business owners and accountants with the power of unparalleled controls and real-time insights. All without any annoying button presses to sync, or CSV's to downloads and uploads.

Expend takes this further by supporting all other types of expenses, including out-of-pocket claims and mileage claims, this reduces the cost of having to use multiple tools to manage different parts of the spending and expense management process. Combining all of these into one streamlined process dramatically reduces the admin involved.

Game Changer

"Since signing up to Expend, it's made expenses and processing them so much easier. No more messy Excel spreadsheets and stapled receipts! Any issues I had were dealt with immediately and I mean within a few minutes. The app and web portal are super easy to use and navigate. The cards are slick looking and employees love them. I love it the most as I can now keep an eye on what is being spent in real-time."

Bijalsian1, 08/23/2019 - QuickBooks App Marketplace review.

The QuickBooks approval process took a long time to complete, but the process also helped to improve quality and level of automation Expend offers for all our users, not just our QuickBooks online users who have had the pleasure of our integration for about a year.

We're incredibly proud of the achievements of our team and also to see the response of users using our QuickBooks integration to make their expenses effortless. We're excited to see even more QuickBooks users take advantage of our revolutionary company spending and expense management platform.

Johnny Vowles, CEO Expend

This is incredibly important for the trust of our users. Not only our current users that have been using us over the past year, but also QuickBooks users who are finding us through the QuickBooks app marketplace, as their checks and requirements are amongst the highest in the industry.

This is a testament to our development team, which has spent hundreds of hours making sure that we create a QuickBooks integration meets the exacting standards of QuickBooks. Going through this process has also helped us to improve other parts of our product, the benefit of these improvements is not restricted to QuickBooks online users. All our users are benefiting from increased security, and usability to manage their bills and expenses faster than ever.

Why should you choose Expend over other expense management apps in the QuickBooks marketplace?

If you're a QuickBooks admin or accountant and you've been enviously looking over the Xero shaped fence at all their prepaid business card partners, then you need not looking any further than Expend. Whenever one of our cards is used, it will automatically enter expenses into our system and prompt the user in their Expend app to add receipts and additional information in seconds.

However, as we've mentioned previously we don't just provide incredibly smart employee expense cards. OH NO, we also manage all your expense claims mileage claims and billable expenses so they all seamlessly flow into QuickBooks without having to press a button or go down the dreaded CSV route. Reducing both time spent on expenses admin and the cost involved in subscribing to multiple solutions.
