Spendesk works in EUR, USD or GBP. Employees who are supposed to pay in cash or with another card can now add third-party expenses too. When it is the matter of online subscriptions, you can easily track and allow some subscriptions before it goes out of hand thanks to virtual cards.
Most importantly, many European companies still do not give corporate cards. Spendesk makes it easy to get started so that your employees do not waste time waiting for someone’s approval. Spendesk lets you set up a clear approval process for the many unusual purchases in the Spendesk interface.
So far, Spendesk has looked after over $49 million (€40 million) in transaction volume. 600 companies are utilizing it. And the best part is that you feel like you are not really paying anything to use Spendesk as the company is charging you on your Spendesk account.
