With thousands of individual accountants, including some of @QuickBooks biggest partners, taking part in the @expensify Approved! Program, there are bound to be a few added features/services the users would find helpful. Our chatters offered these suggestions:

@BizBooksCloud: Wish there were an option to sync with QBO without doing expense reports, as my clients don’t need them, makes an extra step

@BizBooksCloud: I do like it as a buffer to review before syncing, so clients don’t mess up QBO, but those clients find the reporting confusing

We love a good success story and our #QBOchat participants have some great ones about working with, and using @expensify. If you have an awesome story, share it on the @expensify page under reviews.

@accountingpeace: Having neat expense reports. Period.

@CathyIconis: One client that is not involved in the accounting at all mentioned she LOVED @expensify and it was “life changing”

@jazfun: My Client saved enough money on expense reporting she bought all her #SalesTeam new smartphones. They wasted so much energy on receipts and excel sheets!
