Expend ranked as a leading prepaid card for businesses

No more bank holiday's until Christmas, summer holiday season over for another year and yet we were all in a great mood at Expend HQ on a Monday afternoon thanks to the news that we've been shortlisted for not one but two Payments Awards. 

So what have we been shortlisted for, I hear you ask. 🤔

We've been shortlisted for Best Prepaid Card Solution and Most Disruptive Payments Technology in the 2019 Payments Awards.

Alongside our inclusion in Disruptive 50 index (feels like there’s a theme here) and Expend have become the only business prepaid card currently officially available in the UK QuickBooks app marketplace, it’s been a productive summer. 

It's great to see that the tireless work that our team of developers has been recognised again by the Payment Awards judges. Especially as our spending and expense management solution continues to bring together the latest technology to connect our smart business prepaid cards, connected mobile app and our management dashboard, making expenses effortless for thousands of employees and businesses across the UK. 

However, here at Expend, we don’t just make the best smart prepaid Mastercards for expenses and company spending. We also support all other types of expenses, from expense claims to mileage claims and invoices with direct click-free integrations with Xero and Quickbooks

If we had to guess why we were shortlisted, the judges probably loved our Flex cards for improved company cash flow, spending rules and budgets. Removing the need and time required to manually move money between cards and so company money is always where it needs to be to pay for important card purchases. Plus how we are replacing petty cash with our cash management tools to manage ATM withdrawals. These and all our other features are helping organisations to replace the traditional debit card and credit cards for paying for and tracking business expenses. These tools and our intelligent cash flow predictions means that Expend is the perfect addition for those who are happy with their current business accounts.

"We are proud to be recognised by the Payments Awards judges for the second year running. Also, being recognised for 'Most Disruptive Payments Technology' category for the first time alongside our listing in the Disruptive 50 index shows how we are actively disrupting the expense management solution market with a better way to manage business expenses." Johnny Vowles, CEO, Expend.

Will we win? We'll let it be said now that it is the 'taking part that counts' and everything else is just gravy or icing on the cake if you prefer.

The 7th Annual Payments Awards recognises cards and payments excellence and innovation takes place in November, so we have a bit of a while to wait before we find out. 

So yes we are pretty chuffed and it's a great way to start September. Now, where did we put the fizz?
