Acquired by Coupa Software in 2013, Xpenser was originally developed by experienced entrepreneurs who were tired of wasting time on expense reports. It is an automated expense management software optimized for desktop, iOS, and Android devices.

The Good

  • Great features
  • Integration

Great Features

Xpenser is all about connectivity. Unlike some other expense management softwares, Xpenser has been optimized for voice recognition, SMS text messaging, email, Twitter, and has even been directly integrated into Gmail. It easily connects with bank and credit card accounts, uploads photos of receipts, and boasts 256-bit SSL (bank-level) security encryption. Xpenser is also a less-expensive alternative to most of its competitors, available for just $9.00 a month per user. It also supports transactions across 150 currencies for both international businessman and world traveler alike.

Integration

Xpenser integrates with a number of different systems, including QuickBooks, FreshBooks, Outright, and more.

The Bad

  • Lacking features
  • Who ss in charge?

Lacking Features

The Xpenser software itself is lacking in a few key features such as a GPS-enabled mileage tracker.

Who is in Charge?

While Xpenser seems to provide a lot of good features for its customers, it requires a great deal of digging just to find out what they are. Its homepage offers a link the redirects you to the Coupa Expenses page, where not even the slightest mention of Xpenser, along with its features and pricing, is even made. However, it is possible to sign up for Xpenser by accessing the link wwww.xpenser.com/docs/pricing/, but this is not intuitive, and gives off the impression that they don't want you to sign up with Xpenser at all, but sign up with Coupa Expenses. This lack of clarity hurts their rating.

The Bottom Line

While perhaps Xpenser and Coupa are still in the middle of the acquisition process, if you can gain access to Xpenser's services, it seems like a smart choice for your personal or business expense tracking. But if you are turned off by redirects and confusion as to whom you are doing business with, you might choose a company whose products and licensing are more clearly defined.
