Emburse Cards

Expense management & credit cards with spending rules

About Emburse Cards

Emburse Cards allows you to create plastic and virtual credit cards with built-in spending rules. Restrict spending based on budget, date, time, location, etc. You can granularly track individual spending without having to track everyone down. The cloud-based platform allows users, both employees and their employers, to see exactly how much money has been spent by recording all transactions within the app in a timely and accurate manner.

Emburse Cards allows users to set daily, monthly and fixed project limits that cannot be exceeded by employees. The built-in expense reconciliation system captures receipts and categorizes transactions as soon as the transaction happens. Employees can add the receipt on-the-go by taking a picture using any internet-enabled mobile device. Emburse Cards will automatically locate receipts in the user’s inbox, meaning no action is needed to reconcile the payment.

In order to create seamless workflows, Emburse Cards integrates with major third party accounting platforms such as Xero, Quickbooks, Intact and Netsuite which makes reporting and expense reconciliation automatic. The platform also empowers accountants to split expenses into various transactions with different cost categories.

Pretty good, some issues in the part with reissuing cards (always a pain to ship a couple of dozen around the world again) but just happened once so far.

Pros

We have implemented Emburse for all our remote team (aka everyone) that works with us. Each person gets a card shipped with budgets to spend on perks ($500 in Convert's case) and that makes everything run smooth. Then we run almost all budgets through the virtual cards making it easier to decentralize spending on anything. Decentralize is the way to go for us since we run on Holacracy and are all remote.

Cons

Feel it's still missing a direct connection with Xero that could be a big plus. A way to ship a card directly to anywhere in the world (now only US) would save us a logistical step.

Emburse dramatically simplified expenses. My team loves it!

Pros

Emburse makes it incredibly easy to issue expense cards to new employees and ensure that everyone reports back on all the key things you need to close your books. It took an annoying process of internal nagging to get the books closed, to a streamlined automated text message each time someone purchased. It’s amazing.

Cons

There is nothing significant that I dislike about the product. One quirk is that you’re using pre-paid cards rather than true credit cards, so you have to keep re-upping your balance. But this is automated so it’s not a big deal.

Servers Down Constantly Lead to Failures in Purchases

It's a free program, you get what you pay for.

Pros

It's become a little more user friendly with drop down menus that you can search in and the ability to add additional attachments.

Cons

The website has been so slow as of late. It takes a few minutes for it to boot up and for me to be able to search for a transaction. It is so inconvenient. The servers have also had issues lately that cause recurring purchases to fail and cause serious issues with our vendors.

Response from Emburse

Hi Sarah,

We are sorry to hear about your experience. We were recently performing some server cleanup which is why the transaction page was slow but have since finished.

And as of last month, we added a new fix for managing any failed purchases! You shouldn't see anymore going forward.

Just wanted to add that we aren't a free platform, but because of our relationship with Housecall Pro, we decided to waive the monthly fee a long time ago.

If you have any questions or if there's anything we can do for you to make Emburse a better fit for you, please reach out and we'll make it happen!

Regards,
Chris

Our company has between 10-15 American express cards which are being pit on a spreadsheet for monthly allocation and review so we have eased out if using those cards so much as well as completely getting away from using Comdata.

Pros

The fact that you can have unlimited cards both virtual and plastic.

Cons

I was under the impression that it could be used as an ATM debit card and it cant be.
