The Pleo/Xero integration is great, it makes our month end process a lot quicker and easier,. Occasionally there are hiccups, as would be expected with anything, but the Pleo team are so quick to respond when we have questions, that I always have complete peace of mind and know it won't add on any time to our month end process.

Katherine Mason  

Pleo is a great system and very easy to use once you get used to it. I like the Xero integration this makes it very easy to post transactions across to our accounting software. Overall expenses are much more manageable and less time consuming from a bookkeeping aspect!

Shannon Rust  

Pleo solves a problem for us, and streamlines a purchase avenue. It allows us to assign employees spending cards without credit checking individuals, and also allows us to ensure they get receipts in and we control spend.

Sam Papp  

Pleo is very easy to use with seamless set up / integration to Xero. Would highly recommend.

Emma Bayfield  

Using Pleo with Xero its great - I would fully recommend!

Michael O'Rourke  

We've been using Pleo for a couple of months now and we're really impressed with the app itself and the integration with Xero.

Paul Rawlinson  

The Pleo integration with Xero is an example to all on how it should be done! It's simple to set up and it just works perfectly. I actually find the integration better than the one with my bank! Reconciliation is fast and transactions appear almost instantly saving me time and making my life easier.

Rakeem Porter-Young

Kim O'Rourke  

I fully recommend using Pleo and Xero integration - saves hours of admin, and makes it much easier for our staff! A truly seamless experience.

Jack Tracy  

Pleo has replaced our business credit cards for our employees on the farm. It has given us much better control, more clarity, and best of all, a clean and easy rec process and save time completing the accounting. Very happy with the service.

Ryan Bennett  

Been using Pleo for about 6 months now and it has made work life so much easier. The guys on the road love it too and it is very easy to use. No more lost receipts or not knowing what job the purchase was towards. Very happy!

Santina Eusebi  

Pleo is a great add on that works great with Xero as an add on. They are constantly making updates, great customer service with a quick turnaround. Cardholders have their own login to drag their receipts and allocate to accounts. We're very happy with using Pleo!

Michelle Wong  

The Pleo to Xero integration makes colleague expenses a much easier process and saves a lot of time. You can make changes in the Pleo app and the export is complete in less than a minute!

Matt Beggs  

works a treat!!

james Bishop  

Pleo is great and the Xero integration is seamless. There is a great review section in Pleo where you can make sure all the VAT and code allocation is correct so once you export to Xero there is no other review required and you can just reconcile the transactions. One point they can improve on though is single sign on - we have multiple sites which require multiple logins so would be great to see that improvement.

Rob Bartley  

Pleo to xero export is really quick and easy. Have no problems with it and saves time

Belle Farman  

We use Pleo for our staff to make purchases now everyone is working remotely. The integration to Xero makes it easy.

Pete Heslop  

We have been using Pleo and the integration with Xero for a couple of months now and its certainly streamlined our expenses tracking and reporting. Making our accounts simple to consolidate each month.

Steve Moncrieff  

We've been using the Pleo app for several months now and it makes life so much easier for our guys who are out and about on the road, and also for me as I don't have to chase them for receipts as everything is done via Xero

Lindsey Manton  

Only started using the Pleo Xero integration about a month ago - already its made our lives much easier as it removes the hassle of receipt reconciliations. And with a growing team, anything that makes receipts easier to handle and account gets to sit at the top of our podium!

Mark Hirschel  

Pleo is an amazing product that we offer to many of our clients to simply business expenses! The integration with Xero is seamless and works perfectly! The team are also amazing and also happy to help! Couldn’t recommend higher!!!

Joe David  

we have had a smooth integration with Pleo and Xero. Pleo is a great way for us to keep track on all company expenses, would recommend to others.

Donna Hadden  

Finding the integration between xero and pleo very smooth. Its easy to manage and is now saving time throughout the business. Would recommend!

Hannah Callcut  

Pleo is a great service - it saves having to go through a tedious expenses process and it means that colleagues can make purchases easily, without delay. When it comes to reconciling, this is very easy through the integration. I'd highly recommend Pleo to anyone considering it.

Stefan Manku  

Pleo is a game changer. Even compared to some of the other "new age" expense softwares out there. The reason? It's the most frictionless customer journey on expenses around, from ordering cards, to onboarding and training staff, to instant processing and to top it all...the Xero integration which means book-keeping is done seconds after the transaction, with no paper trail to keep and with the benefit of an AI that categorises most expenses right the first time. They also listen to their customers and are constantly adding features. Utter brilliance.

Sophie Albizua  

We replaced our Credit Cards with Pleo cards.They are prepaid, users can download their receipts instantly and the spending limits can be adjusted. Pleo is fully integrated with Xero, safe and easy to use. Customer service is great. Really convenient!

Sarune Jurenaite  

Pleo has been a great addition to the company finances and certainly makes expense reconciliation much easier and faster. The integration with Xero is very straightforward and definitely saves time on a monthly basis. I would highly recommend Pleo with Xero.

Sarah Pike  

Pleo is a great tool for managing small business expenses for small teams. It's easy to use, intuitive and instant, a must for any small business who's short on time.

Sam Bradley  

Has made employee expenses ridiculously easy for a small and fast-growing business. Love that they are continually evolving and upgrading their offering, paying attention to suggestions from customers, and also taking time to engage with customers even if small.

Rob Tragen  

Using Pleo has completely transformed the way in which my team operates. We travel a lot, so having a system in place that processes expenses in real time is hugely beneficial. The platform is incredibly easy to use and integrates smoothly with Xero. I've been supported quickly and efficiently with any issues I've had with the system, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Sarah Rose  

Pleo has changed the landscape of expenses within the business. Our staff now have easy and controlled access to expenses (with personal limits set).
The link in with Xero greatly assists our bookkeeper in processing and recovering expenses set against client accounts etc..
This solution benefits the business, staff, and offers a streamlined service for expenses accounting.
I would definitely recommend Pleo to businesses of all sizes.

Sean Dorian  

When we started using Pleo for our team of globe-trotting freelance trainers more than 2 years ago, it totally streamlined our processing of the team's many and multi-currency expenses and ultimately enabled us to invoice our clients more quickly. The team love the convenience of simply snapping their receipts and knowing that they are safely stored. In the office, we love the real-time nature of receiving the receipts immediately the money is spent. Not only this, but the Pleo card is a thing of beauty and it makes us all very happy to have one in our wallet!

Ruth Ingledow  

We've been using Pleo for just over a year now, and really like it. It saves a load of time every month, and the integration with Xero is fantastic (and the team at Pleo are pretty amazing as well!).

I'm looking forward to a few small updates in the future, such as being able to change the categories in Pleo (at the moment those are pre-set) but overall changing from our old manual system to Pleo has been amazing!

Sam Bradley  

I would recommend Pleo highly for their accessible system, brilliant service and clean design. They are regularly bringing out new updates which improves the overall experience. The integration with Xero is an example of this. 5 stars.

Rosie Black  

As a start up growth consultancy business, my job is to focus on helping others grow their businesses - the last thing I want to do is anything admin based if I can help it and Pleo plays a huge part in allowing me to concentrate on the things that will add value to my own business.

As a result of using services like Pleo, I spend 90% of my time on value/profit adding activity and 10% on admin ( it was about 30% before that ).

It’s a game changer for the right type of business!

Richard Gray  

Pleo solved all my expense report problems and gave more power to my people.
The product itself covers pretty much everything I expected, but in addition, their customer success team then takes further by actually helping us to get more value out of Pleo, helping our accountants, making sure everything is in order with Xero and listening to feedback and following up.

Rauno Rüngas  

Great user-friendly app, which works perfectly for our small-medium size business. Integrates well with Xero and staff are able to make purchases uploading their receipts straight to the Pleo app meaning no missing receipts. This is especially great if you want to control the teams spend, especially if they are out at events etc.
We always have great service from the Pleo team super helpful bunch of people. Our company would highly recommend Pleo!

richard wilde  

This has been a game changer for our company. Pleo has given us the ability to empower our venue managers with their own spending whilst being guided by budget control. Resulting in more employees getting things done quicker and streamlining our finance processes to match! Would highly recommend both Pleo & Xero software - match made in heaven!

Phil Yates  

Totally recommend Pleo, its a great way to give employees the ability to use a company card without the risk, and it integrates into xero perfectly.

Paul Shotton  

Pleo has been genuinely transformative for the financial management of our business. It's avoided our staff having to bear financial burdens, it's made "please send me receipts for transactions 3, 5 and 8" emails a thing of the past, and it integrates perfectly with Xero so makes reconciling and budgeting / tracking so much easier. They've been incredibly quick to help on the rare occasions there have been any issues to resolve. Can't recommend highly enough.

Nick Morris  

We love Pleo, it has helped us to give our team the autonomy and responsibility to procure on behalf of our company while still giving us control and full visibility. The integration with Xero has meant that there is no extra work involved - in fact it has saved us time and we have migrated out entire card spend to Pleo !

Nick Chadaway  

Pleo has transformed the way we manage expenses and integrating with Xero saves a significant amount of admin. Whenever there's been an issue the team at Pleo are straight on it and resolve quickly.

Michael Lawrence  

We have been using Pleo for a couple of months now and are happy with the services provided: the support team is very responsive and efficient, our account manager is always here to help and very friendly.
With Pleo card, my team submit their expenses in a minute, it's a very smooth and user friendly process.
From the online platform I can monitor the account balance and stay on top of our company expenses in seconds.
Great experience overall.

Melinda Berthe  

Both Pleo and Xero are excellent products in their on right - but combined its like 1 + 1 = 5 ....you just get so much more from it
You get truley paperless integration etc and get to keep control of where money is really being spent

Matthew Flack  

I would agree with many of the comments here. I have used Pleo with all of my client companies. It is very easy to implement, employees love the solution, it is great for me for managing expenses and it saves a lot of time on posting expense transactions. A first class solution and App.

Mark Casson  

Pleo is a great system to track employees expenses.
works well with Xero.
definitely would recommend

Maryana Berezdetska  

We've been using Pleo since Feb 2019 and as a busy office manager wearing a lot of hats, I love it for it's ease of use, it saves me heaps of time and is really intuitive for the team to use. It also really fits in with our company culture of trust, each team member being able to buy what they need to do their best work. The customer service is fantastic, always on hand to answer questions quickly. Just brilliant, thanks Pleo!

Katy-Marie Tecks  

We use Pleo for all our client-facing staff, and it has made expense management significantly easier. It's a great product that I have told a number of business friends about and they have begun using. The fact that it also integrates into Xero means it fits into our work processes brilliantly.

Leon McComish  

We've been using Pleo for around 18 months now and have found it really easy to use. It's great that it fully integrates with Xero in terms of nominal codes and exports. I really like the way the engage with their user around new product features and think they are a company who will go far. Working for a tech company, it's great to be able to support another tech company.

Laura Calder  

Pleo has revolutionised our expenses process. The ability to set individual limits, draw from a main pool of funds combined with the ability to review and authorise expenses before they reach Xero have saved us immense amounts of admin time. Highly recommended

Kirsty Taylor  

Pleo has been a huge help in our business and the integration with Xero has been fantastic from a time saving perspective. We have also found that the customer service and support has been fantastic as well.

Laura Haigh  

We used to spend ages with expense reconciliation and chasing down the team to provide acceptable receipts for their expenses. Pleo has made our life so much easier with real time expense tracking, automated feeds, linking receipts directly to expenses with one click. On top of this we are also saving money on foreign currency transactions as it is a lot cheaper to use Pleo cards on business trips abroad. Superb team and great customer service whenever we needed help! We can definitely recommend Pleo.

Krisztina Rucz  

Pleo has been a life saver. Petty cash and expense claims have always been a struggle for us to administer. Pleo has effortlessly changed this for the better, and the office is now cashless. Employees also love the fact that expense claims are now a thing of the past. I can't imagine my life without Pleo!!

Joao Branco  

I work for a small FinTech and we love Pleo! It allows staff to easily expense items without the hassle of reimbursements. Plus, it's integration into Xero is really easy, lighting fast, and we love to see products we love working together.

Pleo are always releasing new features and the regular updates are fun and just the right amount.

Issuing cards is as easy as handing one over and getting them to download the app!

Jase Wheatley  

We've been using Pleo for a couple of years now and it's made such a difference to how we work.

We're a growing company with increasing numbers of employees who work out and about in the community we serve. Managing employee expenses was a headache and we didn't like them having to use their own money to pay for work-related items until they could claim it back. Pleo solved those problems and more in one go.

The big plus points for us are that we have total control of how much money is being spent and by whom, we have immediate visibility of spend right through to automatically interfacing fully-coded line items into our Xero accounts, and we can scale up quickly and simply.

Ian Willis  

Pleo via Xero has changed how we manage expenses. It has saved us time and money and it means that the approvals process has been completely removed. Colleagues don't have to claim expenses now and there's no lost receipts or missing claims. I'd highly recommend Pleo.

James Robinson  

Top integration for top 2 apps

Ian Griffiths  

Accidentally came across Pleo and what a find! Love the product and even better, it is being improved month after month. I'd recommend it to any business with several staff reclaiming business expenses on a weekly basis - really saves time and effort.

Ellen Wallis  

Fantastic product that is saving our finance team valuable time each month. It is also providing employees with autonomy that enhances their work by removing the barriers and hurdles we experienced with previous solutions.
I would definitely recommend Pleo to any business and the integration with Xero is slick and easy to use.

Ethan Carroll  

Big fan of Pleo and their Xero integration. We use Pleo for 3 businesses with 3 different Xero integrations and the time saved over the last 2 years has been incredible. Streamlining expenses, receipts and reconciliation!

Fred Soneya  

Very easy to use/track expenses, great customer support if any queries and employees find it a breeze to use too!

Genevieve Owen  

Really easy to use and our employees love it!

Has completely professionalised the way we spend in our business and the Xero integration works well. Highly recommend.

Dave Slattery  

Pleo has revolutionised the way we do expenses in our business. Now far less time is spent on unimportant admin and more time is freed up for important tasks elsewhere. The customer service is great too.

Fergus Adamson  

Works brilliantly - a great way to manage our team expenses

Dan Hope  

We have being using Pleo for over a year now and have found it excellent. The whole system is very user friendly and employee spending is much easier to control than before we had Pleo. They regularly update the functionality of the platform so it is always improving. The support staff are also very helpful and informative whenever we need anything on the live chat.

David Walsh  

We moved over to Pleo from another, well established credit card provider, as we found it easier to use and manage. I personally am glad for the change! I'm also glad to see that they are still regularly looking to make further improvements which helps keep them on top of their game!

Claire Tanti  

We started using PLEO in December 2018, and I can honestly say it has made the functioning of our small business so much smoother.
Costs are easy to track and getting accurate sterling figures helps hugely with P&L analysis.
A lot of our staff travel and they have also mentioned how easy this makes it for them

Christian Strange  

Pleo has revolutionised our expenses process. Integrating into Xero is the cherry on the cake as it now has given us a seamless expenses process. Time saved and more accurate reporting as well.

Chris Hammond  

Integrating Pleo and Xero is a no brainer for us, we're a nimble business scaling progressively, which calls for various staff members to wear multiple hats. Xero x Pleo gives us clear visibility across the board from our accounts team to our internal finance controllers.

Charles Holgate  

We've been champions of PLEO since the very start. It's an amazing system that links expenses directly to Xero and their relevant nominal codes.

It works becuase it's frictionless and our employees enjoy using it. I think conservatively it saves us collectively around 20 hours per month in processing time.

A great team to who are always on the ball with queries :-)

Barry Hynd  

Pleo has made a huge difference to our company expenses management. Not only does each member of staff have their own card but the app interfaces makes logging receipts nice and simple. The fact that it then syncs across to Xero is a game changer. I couldn’t recommend Pleo highly enough!

Anthony Adams  

The Pleo card integration with Xero is a massive time saver. We used to work with spreadsheets and with users submitting their receipts each month end but this has all changed since we switched to using Pleo. Employee card purchases show almost immediately and the user can upload an image there and then. Expenses review does not have to wait until the month end and can be done whenever is convenient. The integration then means that there is no time spent analysing the costs. Add to this the speedy online help and it has just been win, win.

andy edwards  

Pleo has been such a game changer within the business, its so much easier for the users to manage their expenses without filling out the dreaded expense claim forms and trying to find receipts from a month ago, our staff are over the moon. The customer support team are always so quick to respond, and it makes my day to day life so much easier. It gives us the visibility on spend we need in real time, and with the added bonus of having categories and tags we can make sure the costs are going direct to the correct place. Would definitely recommend.

Charlotte Morris  

We use Pleo for around 30 of our team of 50, who are regularly out and about and incurring business expenses. It's easy to set up and use, the support is speedy and helpful and user interface is excellent. The reporting and link to Xero is also good.
Highly recommended - and they seem like really nice people too, which is always a bonus!

Andrew Brown  

So pleased we implemented Pleo into our business. With 5 separate locations needing to spend it has made life so much easier. The integration with Xero is one of the best app integrations we have come across. We never have any problems but if we have a question the Pleo team are so fast at replying and always happy to help. Top-notch customer service. Well done Pleo!!

Victoria Cozens  

The best Xero add on i have come across lately. It is very easy to use, by both the card holders and the Finance team.
It is super easy to get people to actually attach the receipt, due to the nice feel of the app and the user friendliness. I have spent 4 years trying to get my Director to keep and organize his receipt properly- not having any issues anymore.
Reconciliations are super easy, they feed straight onto xero with the receipt and notes.
Easy to track spend of each individual with a great admin app, so literally nothing can be missed. Also easy to give people more funds or stop their cards.
I highly recommend using Pleo- a great tool, that is extremely useful for small and middle sized businesses, helping them simplify expenses process and reconciliations.

Aleksandrina Dimitrova  

Pleo has been a fantastic addition to our company to streamline expenses. The registration process, setup and Xero integration has been flawless. So much time has been saved, we are seeing much fewer missing receipts. It's extremely user friendly from an accounting perspective and an employees perspective. The customer services is fantastic and very thorough

Julie Frood  

After searching around for a system that would best suit all our requirements we decided upon Pleo. The initial set up was fine, helped by Marie and her team who were always available to assist. Since then we have had no day to day issues. It's very easy to use, easy to integrate with xero and a breath of fresh air in the dull expenses world!!

Hannah Holborn  

Pleo has really helped us out by giving us an easy way to manage day-to-day expenses of our employees. Our employees find the app very easy to use and the interface is great. We are also a big fan of the Xero integration! Also would like to say a big thanks to our wonderful account managers, Hakon & Marie

Rohit Kumar  

Pleo is the perfect system for organising expenses as well as all business purchases! Integrating Pleo with Xero saves so much time in my business where every second counts this only takes a few seconds to sort everything out and to integrate is so easy. Aoife is also really helpful and friendly and always there if you need to ask any questions. I couldn't recommend her service or the use of Pleo enough!

Jason Cairns  

Keeping a track of our teams personal expenses and purchases they require to to do their job was almost a full time job in itself. Pleo has revolutionised the way we do things and has made our accounts so much more efficient. The Pleo team are also extremely helpful and our queries are always dealt with promptly. It's an excellent product / service and have no hesitation in recommending it to other businesses!

Lisa Coffer  

I was introduced to Pleo thanks to the Arrival team, and it's been a game changer for us since we have multiple teams that travel and often have high monthly spends.
The traditional way of doing things through cards from our banks was painful and never addressed the obtaining of a TAX receipt that can be uploaded into our General Ledger system, at the time of purchase negating the need to keep the paper receipt.
The willingness of the Pleo team to visit us on several occasions and hear about our feedback in person has also been incredibly refreshing and allowed us to trust this service for the longer term. Thanks, Marie & Hakon.
I'm looking forward to the new features we've been discussing, and I couldn't recommend Pleo enough.

Andrew Reid  

We've been using Pleo for a few months now, it's awesome. We've issued our entire team with cards and it's made managing expenses so much easier - no more scrabbling for receipts or trying to figure out who spent what, it's just done. We now use it for all our card transactions and subscriptions as well. As for the Pleo team, they're great. They were really hands-on with our on boarding and making sure everything worked for us and we were using things in the best way.

Jan Rust  

Collecting receipts and coding transactions at the point of sale has removed a bulk of work at the accounting end of our business. Without the export feature into Xero it wouldn't have had the same impact.

Matt Dunkin  

Responsive team, great product - slick, easy to use and more importantly for us, significantly transformed and improved the handling and visibility of expenses. Bravo, big fan!

Jamil Khalil  

Pleo has really been a useful tool with staff expenses. The team are incredibly hands on and truly listen to customer feedback to such an extent that they will roll out changes to suit our needs and enhance their product. Modern and adaptable. Great partner for any business.

Nigel Sanders  

Pleo has been amazing for our business, it was our company aim to go paperless and Pleo is really helping to that cause, Our employees are loving the concept of not keeping paper receipts with them in order to claim. Great initiative guys. Best of Luck,

Finance Team Arrival

Hasnain Tariq  

This is truly an amazing product!

Pleo has been a game changer for us as a start up growing in size. The cards allow great visibility and management of expenses. The support staff are on the ball and very happy to help you set up your company correctly to get the most out of it.

I highly recommend Pleo to any one considering it.

Matthew Stevens  

As a FC I could not live without Pleo . A card combined with an efficient expense recording apps was meant to be a successful venture . User experience is great , the recording of the expenses is a doddle for the Finance team . Pleo experienced staff is a pleasure to deal with and their road map includes all the improvement i want to see without having to ask for it .
First class company with a great product that I an only recommend


Catherine Russell  

Nicholas and the rest of the team at Pleo have been super helpful in getting our bookkeeper up to speed, and ensuring the onboarding process is completely painless. Having these cards for reporting expenses just makes life so much easier.

Staff don't have to fork out cash when out of office for work.
Online purchases can be made without as much risk since you can simply turn off the card from your Pleo account if the details are hacked from one of your supplier websites.

Super helpful team if you have an issues. It's a solid system and we've had no down time so far. Our issues have been in getting staff up to speed.

Good if you're a data driven business. I hope we can make use of it all when we're a few months into this year and we can look back at where we can make efficiencies.

Cheers guys!

Darren Eggenschwiler  

As usual the mainstream banks are rigid and slow to keep up with advancements, it's companies like Pleo that help businesses progress and move forwards these days. Just being able to give employees the ability to make purchases and as the employer to control that spending has saved many hours of work. That and the simple integration with Xero means it's a perfect solution.

Robert Rowland  

Pleo has changed the way we work dramatically, they have allowed us to manage company spending with complete ease and clarity, giving us more time to focus on what matters. The fact their product speaks with Xero is a huge bonus for us and the more streamline this becomes the better! Hakon and Marie have provided amazing support from word go despite the fact we are one of their smaller clients. I strongly recommend Pleo to anyone who runs a business, big or small and hope this is the future for company spending for everyone!

Hazel Moran  

Pleo is absolutely amazing! Our company has quite a few transactions and this has been essential in saving us time in order to focus on the more important tasks. I definitely recommend it, it will not disappoint!

Rositsa Dimitrova  

Adopting Pleo and linking it into Xero was one of the best decisions we made in 2017.
We've saved time (lots of it), reduced admin burden, created transparency and increased accountability.
I can't speak highly enough about the workflow, the systems and the support.

Lyndon Nicholson  

Pleo is a great idea, really well executed. We've found it to be a huge improvement in the way we handle expenses - staff don't have to pay for things on their own cards, we don't have to do a lot of admin for expenses, and everyone is happy. Their customer service is great too. The Xero integration so far is good, but could be a bit more tightly integrated.

Steve Parks  

Great product and more importantly Pleo are willing to speak and support direct with our clients. Great on boarding process and so far happy clients.

Masaud Shah  

Fantastic product and company to work with. The team love the cards. It is a great alternative to credit cards or traditional debit cards. Receipt processing is easy and encourages prompt upload. I’m confident that the product will get better and better with customer feedback encouraged and promptly incorporated.

Emma Blackburn  

Love Pleo!! We have been using Pleo for a few months with several clients - it have saved us huge amounts of time chasing staff for their missing receipts - the Pleo App does that for us!!

An excellent integration that brings the card spends and the copy of the receipt straight into the Pleo Card Account in Xero.

We've set up very specific account codes in Xero to map to the account codes in Pleo which means we have a much clearer idea of what the staff member has bought - so no more checking if that spend was subsistence, client entertainment or a travel expense that needs recharing to a client. Brilliant!

Lisa Dickson  

Pleo and Xero works really well - the integration makes life so easy, we treat Pleo as if it's a bank account. Highly recommend it!

Stefan Manku  

Pleo is great! It has saved us a lot of time and everyone is really pleased with the way it's running. It was extremely easy to set up and the Pleo team were amazingly helpful. We used to spend a lot of time chasing for receipts and trying to find out who had spent what but this has all stopped now. A couple of good features have been added recently too - best one is the increased control over VAT treatment. I would definitely recommend Pleo, both the service and the actual product.

Jen Thompson  

Great product. Very easy to use and integrates well.

Richard Wood  

Pleo is an amazing system and helps us save a lot of time while updating expenses and records on Xero.Interphase is very intuitive and user friendly.Hoping that later Pleo updates will enable a forced transaction completion or prompts to ensure data is entered correctly and completely by users, such as right VAT amount is noted on the spend and all the transaction entry fields are filled in.Also would be helpful if Pleo exported data will establish a direct link between the departmental codes on Xero.All in all, highly recommended.

Usman Khan  

Pleo has been a revelation! Since we even showed interest in rolling out cards to our small team for managing expenses, Hakon and his team have been there to help every step of the way and have been amazing! The ease of the integration to Xero is amazing and we just love the fact that its really helped us from having to chase receipts off the users. I fully recommend Pleo to anyone trying to streamline expenses and save hours of admin!

I would like to say how much I am a fan of the Pleo Card. I am working in accounts and monitoring employees expenses has always been a bit of a headache! I have to say since my CEO suggested we signed up for Pleo it has made a nightmare job become so easy! It really has made a substantial difference in a very positive way. Once you have trained your staff to use the app (which is very easy to do) and upload their receipts “on the go” you are more than half way there instead of spending unproductive time aimlessly chasing staff for their receipts after the event! It is really easy to use and is so well supported by the Pleo friendly team who are always available to help! A big plus is that Pleo is already integrated with Xero which is the accounting software we use already and each month so far there have been very welcomed updated beneficial functions that are continually improving the system working together with Xero that really saves so much time on a monthly basis! I was delighted to meet the wonderful Hakon in person who visited our office last week providing fantastic customer service - Hope to see you again soon Hakon - we love Pleo and do highly recommend your product whenever possible.

I have started using Pleo in my bookkeeping practice in anticipation of recommending it to our client base. We use a whole range of cloud based expense management tools - Concur, expensify, webexpenses, Skovik, Receiptbank - so we already recognize that different tools suit different clients. I love the fact that Pleo reminds you to image the receipt as soon as the transaction has occurred and then periodically reminds you if there are missing receipts. This is a huge advantage over corporate credit cards and indeed debit cards, which continue to be a challenge for back office support staff. Anything that helps to drive good expense habits among client's employees can only be a good thing. I look forward to the feature enhancements which I am sure are on their way. Great start Pleo!

We all love Pleo! As a 20 person start up we've been struggling to find a solution for both people's out of pocket expenses as well as the heavy admin process involved in reconciling expenses. Pleo and the team are a game changer, forever improving the product and creating a great user experience. Pleo is a must for any organisation that wants to save time and engage your employees. 👍

We were looking to eliminate or minimise the concept of expense claims when we came across Pleo. It is a new platform but it is relatively seamless and the best part is it is continuously evolving - new features being added month on month. For example, the Xero integration began as a manual upload with no historical record of last upload but now it gives last upload details so you know where to begin. The process of upload is super easy, quick and effective - cuts down on admin time by many hours. Different VAT rates have been introduced within Pleo so now we correct everything within the app and then export on to Xero - 100% correct. All that needs to be done is bulk reconcile. I would like to see if it is possible to schedule an export daily/weekly/fortnightly/monthly depending on the usage, this will introduce a discipline in export and a regular schedule. Thanks Hakon, Marie and rest of Pleo team. Great work.

We have been using Xero for many years and we were looking for a way to avoid expense claims (which isn't the best feature on Xero, tbh) then we stumbled upon Pleo, which has been a really exciting new way of helping our team to get out and around to our clients without having to worry about waiting for the month-end to claim the money back.
It's really simple to use, really easy on-boarding for staff using them and makes it really simple to pay for things, upload the receipt straight to the app which makes me life as the finance manager a lot easier. I can also now top up the card through an easy and instantaneous bank transfer.

Having met Hakon and a couple of the team I can see that they are super keen to improve all aspects of their product and we have regular meet-ups to discuss any issues we have or suggestions that they can potentially correct in the upcoming updates to the product, which is an excellent way to keep their clients up-to-date.

I can't wait to see what's next and I hope that Pleo and Xero can work together to make the integration even better than it is currently.

Pleo has been a revalation for our company. The seamless integration with Xero has made reconciliations for expenses an absolutely painless process. Have reccomended to anyone who would listen.

Pleo is an integral part of our recommended Xero set up for clients.
Before Pleo, ciients paid £300-500 per month for a bookkeeper to chase up all receipts and match to payments after month end. This took weeks to complete.
Now it's coding as you go. When making the purchase, the card user chooses the code, scans the receipt (until that becomes digitised in 2019-20) and selects the customer if recharging the cost.
The bookkeepers role is now to monitor & adjust the coding, receipts & VAT allocation of the expenses imported into Xero which in turn teaches Pleo to anticipate the right codes/ VAT in future.
As well as cutting out a huge swathe of bookkeepers cost, it means faster month end turnaround.
Our clients can have accurate Xero numbers within 5 days so we can then work with them on dashboards to forecast ahead.
So Pleo is a critical part of our process in cutting admin time & cost & delivering real value to clients.

Working for a small start up, we rolled out Pleo cards to the management team mid 2017. From a finance perspective it has significantly reduced the amount of time I have to spend processing expense requests or purchasing items for the rest of the company. The management team also appreciate having budget responsibility themselves. The app is really user friendly and well designed.

From Pleo, Hakon has been brilliant, I spent a lot of time discussing our needs with him before signing up and then we have regular check-ins now. Pleo certainly care about their customers and listen to feedback.

The integration to Xero is really helpful and again cuts down on admin time.

Couple of product developments I would really like to see are:
- Ability to schedule automatic export from Pleo into Xero at the end of each month
- Ability to rename or recode the Pleo account line in the chart of accounts (so I can make it fit with my very particular way of setting up my chart of accounts!)

Working in a 60-employees startup, I can greatly recommend both the product and the team behind it - we had a very good experience.

From the first contact we had with Pleo's business developpers, all the way through a full phased company roll out, their team was very supportive, responsive and helpful. Pleo made our finance team save a lot of time & the product is built in a very smart way, solving daily pain points for accounting/finance teams f.i. in growing startups. Online support is one of the most reactive and professional I've experienced in a while.

The integration with Xero is still basic but definitely helpful as it helps us attributing receipts directly to the right nominal accounts within Xero and have an upstream management on missing receipts. End of month reconciliation process is much quicker and easier now.

Claire Bothorel  

Pleo and Hakon have been fantastic.

During our test run, we were happy with the service and have rolled out to all the teams within our company. The integration with Xero works seamlessly and helps us save time having to chase invoices or receipts.

We are awaiting new features that can make our experience with Pleo even better!

Anh Phung  

PLEO has been fantastic for our Finance Team. We are saving so much time because of how the system has reduced the volume of processing.

The card holders are over the moon to not have to keep hold of every receipts and being out of pocket for travel expenses.

The PLEO team are really responsive to any issues or new ideas.

Alex Duffy  

Pleo all the way! Awesome app and even better team. The integration with Xero means hands-off all the way from expenses to reporting. I would recommend Pleo to everyone and look forward to further collaboration between Xero and Pleo!

Tao Mantaras  

Pleo has made a huge change to our company. The staff are very excited about the ease of use of the app and the fact that they don't incur expenses anymore, nor have to fill out fiddly expenses reports! From an administrative point of view, Pleo has really simplified our expenses and has therefore freed up time for more billable work. The output from Pleo can be completely tailored to any company's needs. Furthermore, the Pleo staff have been incredibly helpful and friendly. I would recommend Pleo to anyone!

Marleen Crabtree  

Very good service, I have reccomened it to 3 different companies.

Eaglehill Limited  

Pleo is amazing! It has completely transformed the employee expenses process and the ease with which an accountant and employees can manoeuvre on the Pleo site and app is second to none; it is a revolution in employee expenses. Long gone are the days of credit card and the mass of paper receipts. As the accountant, this has saved me a considerable amount of admin time, time which can be spent on value added activity within the organisation. Could not recommend this product highly enough. But even better than the product, is the Pleo staff! They always go above and beyond to ensure our needs as a finance function are met, whether it's helping with the functionality of the Pleo site or providing updates on upcoming developments. Would highly recommend Pleo to any firm looking to make the expenses process as easy as possible!

Shiva Vagani  

I love Pleo - it saves the team and I a canny amount of time every month, it's super easy to use, our employees love it and they really like the autonomy it gives them. Our accountant thinks it's fantastic and the customer support from Pleo is 10/10. What's not to like!?!

John Ryder  

Highly recommend this Xero add on! I have used Expensify before but feel Pleo is much easier and quicker to use due to the instant notification of any spend. All that's needed is a quick photo and a few words description then it's done. We have about 12 users on the platform currently and it has drastically reduced the monthly time spent processing expenses and setting up reimbursement payments to staff. Pleo support are also very quick to answer any queries and questions. Keep up the good work!

Neil Terry  

I work at a startup and Pleo saves us a lot of time! No more admin time spent sorting faded receipts. Our Human Resources are limited and this time is very precious, so it’s great to know that we can also always count on their excellent customer service if we have a un question. A seamless experience for us and our accountant.

Marie Krebs  

Pleo is a great system for streamlining expenses (and pretty much all business purchases). Integrating Pleo with Xero means that we now save hours of admin per month and no longer have to hunt around for those stray receipts. It's also really well supported by a friendly and helpful bunch of people at Pleo HQ.

Adam Castleton  

I fully recommend using Pleo and Xero integration. We are now saving time with our finances, each transaction made with our Pleo card is automatically designated to the correct nominal in Xero - No more monthly audits. The Pleo card is a saviour to all our staff expenses. Please check Pleo out, you won't regret! Service is amazing!
