Fewer hurdles thanks to virtual cards

Spendesk reduces the number of expense and travel expense claims by using virtual cards for online payments. Employees book their business trip autonomously and securely with a virtual card. Managers release the payment requests with one click, including via email or Slack integration. Virtual cards can also be used for subscription management to track recurring payments.

Digitise your travel expense reports

Spendesk simplifies expense management for employees & finance teams. When employees don't have their physical card with them or card payments are not accepted, they can create a digital expense claim in an instant. They simply take a photo of their receipt and submit it with one click via the Spendesk mobile app (available for iOS & Android). Using OCR technology, all important information is extracted automatically.

Physical debit cards for payments on the move

Paying in cash on business trips, advancing expenses, and submitting long expense reports are all a thing of the past. With Spendesk, every employee gets their own Mastercard debit card for payments on the road, and can pay autonomously and securely. Managers & supervisors can individually approve time slots, days of the week, and expense categories for each employee. The function to withdraw money from ATMs can be activated and deactivated with one click.

All spending in one solution

Spendesk centralises expense claim management, purchase orders, invoices, transactions, and preparatory accounting in one solution, and links employee requests to team budgets. This lets managers check whether each expense fits the budget before approval. The finance team has a real-time overview of all employee expenses and doesn't have to wait until the end of the month to see how much has been spent.
