AppZen

Expense report audit solution with artificial intelligence

About AppZen

AppZen is an expense report audit solution which utilizes artificial intelligence to help businesses audit expense reports, invoices and contracts. AppZen’s AI technology reads over 40 languages and 100+ currencies, helping users quickly identify any duplicate expense claims, travel and booking violations, weekend and holiday purchases, out-of-policy spend, and excessive meal and alcohol spend, as well as duplicate invoices and charges, discount term violations, and more. AppZen gives users a central platform from which to manage all of their expense-related activity.

AppZen supports real-time expense report and receipt auditing, helping businesses reach full compliance by managing the employee reimbursement process and detecting any policy violations. Automatic notifications inform users immediately when there is new information to review. AppZen’s AI technology helps users validate expenses by cross-checking internal policies with online resources. AppZen provides a complete FCPA compliance check for individuals tagged on a gift or business expense and supports online merchant checks across online resources like Yelp, LinkedIn and TripAdvisor. Analytics technology enables users to drill down into employee expense spend and identify any team or individual spend violations. Data insight also allows users to detect opportunistic spending.

    AppZen has been a easy tool to manage. Our customer rep has been great to work with and has always answered our questions and action items in a timely manner. So far, great experience.

    Pros

    Detects transactions that are following company's policy and in case there are any questions, AppZen provides an overview of the policy and why it was flagged. AppZen is continually adjusting and improving their program.

    Cons

    Reporting, it would be great if AppZen was able to provide a downloadable reporting tool where users/admins can view "live" reports. For example, what expenses were approved/rejected in certain categories.

    Overall experience with AppZen satisfactory. The system improved our audit process and we don't have plans to switch back to the older process. I recommend it.

    Pros

    The software is very friendly and easy to use, we have people starting auditing and picking up in speed very quick. The artificial intelligence saves the time of the whole team, so we can focus the attention only on real problems. We have been finding expenses out of the policy that we were not able to find before, such as Flight Upgrades and Car Rental Upgrades.

    Cons

    It is still a new software, and there are some cases that we can't fully audit in Appzen, and the reporting tool is still limited. But they are making improvements constantly, they have deployments every 2 weeks, and we can notice that the system is getting better over time.

    My experience has been positive overall. There are opportunities for the program to be further developed and improved, but I've been pleased with what it's allowed us to find while auditing thus far. Our main point of contact at AppZen, two of the representatives has been incredibly responsive and great to work with.

    Pros

    The functionality, for example, it's ability to find duplicate expenses. The amount of effort to catch things like that were near impossible previously.

    Cons

    We'd like more robust reporting capabilities.

    Better than most expense tools

    Reviewed on 2018/09/26

    Pros

    It's easy to figure out how to input in receipts and mileage without any upfront training. It's intuitive enough to figure out on your own which is nice. My expenses are routed quickly through the system, approved, and paid out quicker than other expense tools I've used in the past.

    Cons

    No real weak spots to mention. I suppose the user interface could use a face lift on the desktop version.
