We have been using expend for only a short period of time and it has made a lot of admin tasks easier. The integrated system with Xero is extremely helpful.

Having looked at other expense cards, we settled on expend. It had the features we were looking for, ie separation and control of card funde, and direct integration with xero. The interface is really easy to use. Its made managing our low level purchases and expenses rally easy, which is invaluable given our organisation is mainly run on a voluntary basis.

I've been using Expend for nearly a year now and have found it useful in more ways than I expected.
It's just for myself as an IT contractor, but now mostly living abroad means that when I do on-site visits back to the UK, I don't have to fill my luggage with receipts, which as I'm a bit careless often end up getting torn, wet or lost.

I just pick the Expend card whenever it should be a company expense and within seconds I get a ping on my phone which has the transaction details in. This would be very useful in the case of fraudulent use I would think, but also as a reminder when I've signed up for a subscription service.
Then it just takes a few seconds to take a photo and categorise the transaction either right away or I usually do on the train back that day.

The card is loaded directly from the company bank account, this makes it easy to keep track of overall costs for a trip.
It is also useful though that I've never had the card rejected when travelling and that there are no foreign currency fees - the instant notification in pounds saved me from activating a season train ticket instead of a return when I got the mental conversion 10x out!

The few times I've needed support they have been friendly and efficient. Would recommend.

Expend is amazing - we used to have a ramshackle system of dogeared receipts being paid back whenever someone got round to it. Now we just top up the card and forget about it. Can't believe we didn't do it before! Super-helpful, super-friendly staff, talked us through the setting-up process. Brilliant, totally recommend!

As an expanding business we've been searching for some time for a card system that would allow us not only to have multiple users but also provide us with the ability to monitor and track expenditure all through one dashboard that links straight through to Xero. Expend offered a solution to our requirements. The system was easy to set up and navigation around the site is very user friendly. For me what sets Expend above any other Company of this kind is the superb support service provided by Colin and the team. The team are responsive to feedback and very much in tune with the market. I highly recommend this service.

Expend.IO, Colin and the team have been great and quick to responding to any queries.

After searching the market for over 1 year to find a suitable system, this product has been a dream come true. We had a few teething issues but they were quickly dealt with by the team, I highly recommend this to any financial controller with large teams. Perfect for capturing receipts and tracking expenses. Also allocating money to staff members is straightforward.

Expend is a great system. It makes handling employee expenses an automated dream. No more chasing invoices/receipts and having to lend cards to staff. The system is easy to use and intuitive. It also helps that the team are nice to work with.

We've been using Expend for a couple of months now and have recently added another 2 cards. I've really appreciated the quick turnaround on getting new cards and the ease of moving funds between cards as needed. The feed into Xero is working well and I'm seriously considering rolling Expend out further, perhaps even as a replacement for some of our less well used credit cards. Customer service and technical support has been really good and I'm glad I chose Expend.

After thorough testing we now recommend Expend to all our clients. Those clients that have been using the Expend cards have seen noticeable time savings and increased cost allocation accuracy especially where the cards have replaced petty cash. We now spend less time chasing for receipts as the mobile app allows instant attachment and upload to Xero. The new dashboard allows easy allocation of funds to cards and new card requests. Lost cards can be easily cancelled and replaced. This is an excellent Xero add-on.

We have a small business with 4 employees and have been using Expend for 6 months now. We are finding Expend makes managing expenses and spending so much easier than what we used to do with multiple credit cards feeding into Xero. Everything is tracked and accounted for in real time. No more missing receipts and cumbersome expense claims like we had before. It is super easy and has given real peace of mind that everything is accounted for and updated properly. This product is amazing. I don't know what I'd do without it!
