    We’ve simplified ExpenseBot’s main navigation, organizing your experience around your most-used paths. Imported, manual and ignored transactions, for instance, live under Transactions. You’ll find Entities and Projects under Lists.

    Receipt RoboScan

    Oh no we didn't. Actually, we did. Now everytime you upload a receipt to ExpenseBot we'll automatically scan it and add the details to the receipt record.


    Just Released: Bulk Expensing!

    Posted by: Ed Buchholz Date: October 1, 2014 at 1:05 PM

    You asked for it, and we delivered! Now you can add multiple transactions from your credit card or bank account to an expense report at once with our new bulk expense functionality. Have a bunch of transactions that are... personal in nature? You can ignore all of them at once too!


    ExpenseBot Product Update for Mid-September!

    Posted by: Adam Baratz Date: September 22, 2014 at 12:53 PM

    The past few weeks have been a whirlwind here at ExpenseBot. Here's just some of what we've been up to:

    Non-approval Users: If you're a hot-shot at your company and don't require approval, you can now submit expense reports directly to your finance team.  FYI: We're totally jealous of you!

    Multi-tier Approval Process: Some companies require that multiple people approve expense reports before reimbursement. Now administrators can easily establish hierarchical approval trees.

    Customizable Contacts and Projects: We now allow administrators to require certain users' expenses to have contacts and/or projects attached to them. In addition, users can now be set to default a contact and/or project.

    Whitelabel of Exports: If you are an accountant or controller you probably need to import the data that is created by Expensebot into your accounting system. Now you can use our whitelabel tool to match the CSV file to those titles required by your accounting platform.

    We all love Excel. When it comes to data entry, it’s the Swiss Army Knife at the heart of business’s operations; and it’s not that hard to understand why. Excel is already on most desktops and workstations, it’s relatively easy to use,  and most people are familiar with the program. Excel is the de-facto king of data entry.

It might seem like a counterintuitive process for you to focus on, but controlling spending just might be the thing your company needs to take it to the next level.
