the long approval process from management to finance then the pay out, it could be just a tad bit quicker but it does beat waiting for a check

"Real Time Expense Management"

What do you like best?

system directly links with credit cards to pull transactions for easy expensing and faster approval and directly links with accounting software

What do you dislike?

Credit card transactions are based on credit card data and may take a day or two to appear. It would be nice to have ability to expense a credit card prior to it linking with the credit card data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Credit card expense reports turned in timely and being approved. Missing credit cards receipts, reconcilation time significant. We have cut down time for reconcilations by over a half and moved the process from a month of time to gather and retrive everything and manually enter to a few days.

"I love Abacus!"

What do you like best?

I love the UI and how quick the support team responds to concerns.

What do you dislike?

It's a little frustrating to deal with strange glitches and bugs

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that this is a fairly new product that's going through changes regularly. The staff keeps users updated about outages and the like on their blog which is useful, and the support team responds quickly. It's easy to get frustrated with the occasional glitch, but overall, the benefits outweigh the pains.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great for easy processing of user expenses and the comprehensive filters are great for sorting things and finding exactly what I need. It helps us reimburse our employees quicker and its integration with Netsuite makes monitoring all of this so much easier.

"Very satisfied"

What do you like best?

Abacus is very quick and easy to use as an administrator and a user.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the website can be really slow when I am authorizing expenses. That can be difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We went from using no expense app to Abacus. It was like night and day. A huge timesaver and everyone loves it. I would not hesitate to recommend this product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everyone in our company that uses Abacus raves about it. Abacus makes it so much easier to submit expenses in realtime. It also helps me as the administrator to track travel expenses that we bill back to our clients.

"Abacus is clean and easy."

What do you like best?

I like that I can either wait to handle my expenses (as a sales user that travels) by referencing my credit card transactions or take care of the expenses right on the spot by simply scanning a receipt. Also, I love getting my money back faster.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at all from a user perspective! From my perspective, the software is very clean and easy to use!

What do you like best?

"Expense Management at its Finest"

What do you like best?

Abacus Has been absolutely great for expense management and tracking. Compared to concur the user interface is much smoother and simpler but the data presentation and data visualization is by far the most beneficial part for us. It has allowed us to track and analyze our expenditures and Waze we weren’t previously able to.

What do you dislike?

It took a little while longer than I would have liked to become comfortable with the layout but other than that I absolutely love their software along with all of my colleagues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is our go to for expense management and tracking. While we were previously using Concur we think this was an excellent upgrade and well worth the time and effort put into implementation.

"Abacus in the Legal World"

What do you like best?

The user friend features in Abacus are beneficial in that users do not waste a lot of time to enter the information on a daily basis.

What do you dislike?

There are not really any features that I dislike or have difficulties with, so this would really be a N/A type answer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Products like this are a great tool for small offices or larger offices and employees will be able to use it without any problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a cloud based type software it is easier to access remotely, which is completely beneficial when out of the office.

"Regional Sales Director "

What do you like best?

The ease of use of the application on both the mobile phone app as well as the desktop is great. Straight forward and great time saving features when doing your expense reports.

I have used other expense report tools like Concur and I find this one to be much more user friendly when adding or trying to modify an expense line item.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike so far. Appears I need at least 40 characters as a required minimum for this field so this is me, just typing away. LOL!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Abacus we are streamlining the expense report approval process. Before Abacus we were manually submitting expense reports to the CFO and it was too time consuming.

"Easiest expense reporting software I've used"

What do you like best?

This software is very easy to use and is great for employees who travel frequently. I used Concur and found it to be intuitive and easy, but this is light years ahead. The real-time submission and quick turnaround ensures I have the cash in my bank account to pay the bills. It is also great because I don't have to save all my receipts and input a mass expense entry after the fact (my biggest beef with Concur). Flexibility between mobile and online platforms is super helpful and easy as well.

What do you dislike?

Just some little things: the sync between the mobile platform and web platform is not perfect. For example, when I take a receipt photo with my phone, the expense is available one mobile, very quickly, but I have to log out and log back in own my computer to see the same charge. Would like a little easier functions for categorizing expenses into "trips" after expenses have been entered and submitted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Strongly recommended. Great user experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplified expense reporting. The greatest benefits are the accuracy in data capture, transparency, and the speed of the program to completing reimbursements.

"Good app and even better customer service"

What do you like best?

Their customer service reps showed me how to use the basic version features, saving us money by not needing to upgrade to the pro version. I felt like they put our needs on top of a quick sale, which is a very special thing to encounter and says a lot of good things about Abacus.

The app does all the basic things we needed, plus it allowed us to deposit directly from our bank (a regional bank that doesn't Expensify doesn't integrate with).

What do you dislike?

nothing so far, everything is fine, I don't dislike anything

What do you like best?

I love that everything is categorized.and self explanatory. The tools they have to assist you comes in very handy. When i need toll reimbursements from my employer, i just enter all my info and then i am paid within a few days of reporting it. The service Abacus provides is an excellent one.p Just awesome!

What do you dislike?

The only thing i could say that needs improvements is sometimes when u enter more than one expense in a day it states its a duplicate. There is no way to differentiate the two. Im sure tgats just a glitch. There is nothing i dislike about Abacus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Abacus is providing a platform of tools to list expenses and once completed i am able to go back if needed to look up past expenses. Instead of looking for receipts all i have to do is go on my Abacus app and my expenses are right there at my fingertips. Business done simple!

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

It takes less than a minute to submit a request, it's very user friendly, and a fast way to get a reimbursement if you don't want to wait for payroll.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would change is if your request requires a multi person approval, it would be nice to see who's approval is pending. This may be something that is available at a manager/approver level but is currently not available at the employee level.

"The fastest Expense Tracking Software! "

What do you like best?

I used to submit expenses on a regular basis since I didn't like to carry around company expenditure for weeks and Abacus was the most seamless, quick and easy platform to use to get myself reimbursed quickly. And of course internal communication is the other best part, speeds up the process even more.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike. I've heard there's no foreign currency reimbursement but I never travelled as part of my work for this company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's quick and easy to use. I've worked at places that used Excel sheets to do expenses and it was a nightmare. Would usually take up so much time and effort and many employees would avoid expensing entirely.

There is really nothing to dislike - I've only used a couple different expense systems, and Abacus has been so simple to use.

"great invetion"

What do you like best?

It's quick, simple, and helpful. . Having Abacus handle my bank exchanges implies I don't need to consider it With coordinate endorsement and direct store The application is extremely extraordinary in light of the fact that I can take photos of my receipts on the fly and not need to spare them and enter them all at onceTheir presentation messages answer your inquiries previously you even have an opportunity to ask them! For us, Abacus was the ideal decision as it offered us both a straightforward and down to earth cost stage to begin with and additionally an innovation we will have the capacity to utilize advancing and incorporate with our bookkeeping programming as our business delegates turn out to be more mindful of the item. (Which isn't excessively intense! Its amazingly easy to utilize!) Pricing is at an incredible point too. In any case, if a client does not present a cost they won't pay for that month! I would not confide in the individuals who offer "free cost programming." Those at Abacus are experts, pass on, no uncertainty.

What do you dislike?

I get the feeling that the designers are as yet working out a few crimps in the web and versatile applications my costs are reliably for a similar office and save money on the 3 sec to render each time I would just need to tap "Occasion gathering" and it fills in all the sub-classifications, that may be cool.I truly have few cons for the product. I figure it is decent to see more instructional recordings that we could impart to our business group with the goal that we didn't need to disclose the product to them. That being stated, the product is natural and we had couple of issues helping everybody get up to speed. All things considered, there is little to grumble about considering how much blast you get for your buck.

Recommendations to others considering the product

understanding your consumptions at scale is significant to progress and Abacus guarantees this is a simple and adaptable process for all included Additionally, in light of the fact that the greater part of the costs must be ordered it is anything but difficult to see where the most astounding uses are going on.This product immensely enables the bookkeeping to group at our Firm. It likewise helps the clients who are required to submit corporate costs. The classes and customization fields enable this item to be to a great degree valuable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Elegance in its simplicity, excellent tool."

What do you like best?

The Abacus user interface is clean, easy to use, and it is easy to find what you need. Our previous system would take months to arrive, so it's useful that it can be in my bank account in a matter of weeks. The application is really great because I can take pictures of my receipts on the fly and not have to save them and enter them all at once, In addition, it facilitates the approval of payments for expenses since we can integrate it with our credit card to facilitate the payment.

What do you dislike?

the possibility of adding a date in which you want the reviewer to approve it. If I have a very large expense, I want my manager to know that I would need it by a certain date in order to manage my personal finances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The mobile application is the best part of Abacus, makes it even easier for users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"An actual advancement for expense management!"

What do you like best?

"Real-time" expense management is awesome. I can't believe it isn't more widespread. It just makes so much more sense than separate reports, which are very much based on an outdated paradigm.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, the product did not sync correctly with my company's corporate card.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a system that works for you and has been in place for a long time, I'm not sure it's worth the switch. But if you're tired of driving yourself crazy getting those expenses in on time, this could be what you're looking for. Abacus has great features and a really interesting setup. If you see it in action, I think you could see if it'll be a fit for your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting people to submit expense reports is like pulling teeth. WIth Abacus, they don't have to submit a full, finalized report - they can do their expenses when they have time and fully get them off their plate and out of sight. Being able to eat away at your list like that is a great feeling!

I really enjoy both Abacus's website and mobile app for submitting my expenses and keeping track of reimbursements. It seamlessly connected to my bank, shows my past reimbursement data, and I'm able to easily view my pending expenses.

In today's age, choose a tool for your employees that already has a great complementary app. They'll thank you.

The business benefits are multiple. I'm able to submit expenses with a few taps on my screen, from my mobile device directly, and categorize them efficiently. I greatly prefer this to other tools I've used for business expense reimbursements, which were clunky, had strange fields, and did not have a great user interface.

"Abacus is an excellent tool that has simplified our process and saved significant amount of time"

Abacus is different than other products because it allows more customization, alerts you to unreconciled card charges, and lets you create customizable pdf reports for clients as one document. The ability to aggregate and create reports on multiple criteria is extremely helpful.

"Easy expense management sofware"

What do you like best?

Their mobile solution makes it really simple to capture business expenses quickly. The workflow and notification schema works well too. Quick to notify users of changes in their submitted expense reports.

What do you dislike?

Syncing with credit cards isn’t great and you can’t retract a previously sumbitted expense for editing. Hard to split payment and expenses up all well into different categories.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reimbursing employees for business related purchases. Also, communicating the expense policy and ensuring required metadata is capture when sumbitting expenses.

"Finally, a tech-forward solution for dreaded expense reporting"

What do you like best?

Clarity, automation. Ability to email in receipts or submit via app. I can submit expenses as I accrue them, rather than try to recall all end of month.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more granular edit abilities -- I've run into a few issues trying to edit an expense once submitted but before approved. I've also had issues where the exchange rate used by the platform differed slightly from how I was charged by my bank. It was a lot of manual work fixing that. The drop down categories can be a tad slow in-app, only noticeable when submitting multiple expenses, but for that reason I wish I could auto-pre-populate the dept drop down, since my expenses are consistently for the same department and save on the 3 sec to render each time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very deliberate in setting up the rules for your organization -- it's possible that a lot of my feedback for Abacus is dictated by the rules in place established by our admin, not necessarily indicative of the tool itself.

Reimbursements are quick. When traveling often, its nice to get back funds sooner than later.
