About Pleo

Pleo is a cloud-based solution for managing company spending and automating expense reporting, using virtual and physical company cards. The system is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses and offers a web app for managing and tracking spending, and native Android and iOS apps for receipt capture.

Virtual prepaid Mastercards can be generated in Pleo for online purchases, and employees can be given physical cards for other spending. Different spending limits can be set for individual employees, with options for both monthly and total spend limits. Users can enable and disable cards instantly, and view spending in real-time through Pleo’s web dashboard.

Through the native mobile apps, Pleo automatically reminds users in real-time to take a photo of their receipt whenever they make a purchase. Purchases are automatically categorized, matched with receipt photos, and users can add custom tags and notes to expenses for identification. Pleo can be integrated with a range of accounting systems, including Xero, Sage One, and QuickBooks, allowing one-click export of expense data.

    Pleo is just a product that makes your life easier. Our company uses Pleo every day to pay for stuff without​ having the hassle​ to reimburse individuals. It gives you a lot of freedom but also responsibility​ and trust as an employee.

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - Product solves a real problem for every company (from a size of more than 6 people I would say)
    - Lovely design
    - Great team and company culture

    Cons

    I can't be thinking​ of anything. Every tech product has points to improve on their journey​ but Pleo's customer success team makes it easy to raise any problems, are very helpful, quick and friendly​.

    Pleo is a time-saver!

    Pleo company cards for key employees: With Pleo, our employees no longer have to make out of pocket purchases as they are trusted with their own Pleo card. Real-time data and spending limits make it easy to monitor expenses.

    Automated bookkeeping: Our biggest relief with switching to Pleo, is that all expenses are now automatically transferred to our accounting system without wasting time on matching individual payments or tracking down missing receipts.

    Now, the employees add a short descriptive note to each purchase and quickly uploads the receipt, which makes our bookkeeper's job way easier.

    With real-time expense statistics, it is possible to see exactly how much we have spent on different categories before the month has ended, which gives additional insights and makes my liquidity budgets more precise.

    Pros

    Pleo is a time-saver! Now all purchases automatically transfer to our accountant system and we never have to struggle with missing receipts. Pleo also gives you increased control of the company credit cards and real-time expense insights, which makes you able to do better decisions

    Cons

    There are some minor issues regarding the mastercards. Sometimes our employees get their cards disabled for wrong issues, but it is quick and easy to enable them again.

    Beware! Totally unhelpful

    Reviewed on 2023/01/29

    Cons

    There are no pros. You live on the basis that your funds may or may not be loaded onto your card and they are of no help whatsoever. Customer support is awful and they just tell you they can’t help and even though you have money transferred to them that has left your account they don’t always load it to your card and tell you ‘we will just have to park this investigation for a few days’. Please - find an alternative card. That’s what we are doing now having been left almost ‘find less’ for 3 days and having to keep sending more money in the hope that it gets loaded but so far - nothing.

    Best company card ever!

    Just works. I think my 2-year old son could figure it out.

    Just works. I think my 2-year old son could figure it out.

    Pros

    Beautiful interface and 1-click (almost) bookkeeping is very impressive. I save maybe 2 hour a month on reporting for myself and my teams and I don't have to keep track of my receipts in my pockets.

    Cons

    Would be great if there was some sort of kickback but that's probably not in the EU directive that makes it legal.

    Excellent - hazzle-free receipt handling!

    Reviewed on 2019/04/23

    Pros

    This is a 'must-have' for anyone who hates handling receipts. UX is key here and customer service is problem free!

    Cons

    Believe it or not - no cons here. Everything works seamlessly
