Great efficiency tool for small companies

5 3 years ago

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.

Spendesk, l'incontournable de la digitalisation des notes de frais !

4 6 months ago

Pros:

J'apprécie la simplicité d'utilisation et le caractère intuitif de la solution. La soumission en quelques clics de factures est très souple, de même pour les notes de frais. La possibilité de créer des abonnements, de ne plus avancer de frais pour l'entreprise remplit complètement l'objectif premier de notre recours à Spendesk !

Cons:

Les extractions des écritures comptables ne nous permettent pas encore une intégration automatique dans notre logiciel de comptabilité.

Un très bon outils

4 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

- La facilité d'utilisation pour les employés c'est une plateforme intuitive. - Le service client, toujours à l'écoute et la résolution de problème. - les changements positifs en terme de développement

Cons:

- certaines fonctionnalités ne sont pas très clairs comme les cartes d'abonnement aux verts alors qu'on vous indique qu'il n'y aura pas assez pour les couvrir. - les changements récurrent au niveau des dates prises en comptes (nous n'avons pas vraiment de points de repère visuellement entre la date de paiement et la date d'achat : notamment pour les NDF)

Improvements

3 2 years ago

Comments: 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.

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.

Très bon outil pour une startup ou PME

5 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

L'utilisation comme suivi des factures et paiement des notes de frais ou encore des fournisseurs par carte. Les exports comptables et la possibilité de les customiser sont nécessaires pour nous

Cons:

Les seules fonctionnalités manquantes à ce jour sont : - Exports comptables "non définitifs" non possibles - Gestion des avoirs non possible
