App Spotlight: Expensify

Business trips are a necessary evil that cost the traveling business person more than just money. Time spent away from loved ones can’t be replaced, and neither can the time that the travelers spends collecting receipts for reimbursement. The former issue is a hard problem to solve, but the expense report stress can be eased with Exspensify.

This is an app that allows the user to streamline their expense report by putting it all online, and removing the need for paper receipts. The app will keep track of petty cash expenses, receipts, the mileage driven, and will even take note of any business cards. This is all done through Expensify’s own website, to which all records of expenses will be sent so the user can relax.
