Bento for Business lets you instantly control and track employee expenses from anywhere. We asked them 8 questions, as a part of our “What Is” blog series, to learn more about their app and their company.
What is your App’s name, what do you do, & when did you get published on Intuit’s Apps.com?
Bento for Business provides small businesses with employee expense cards linked to powerful and real-time controls. Small business owners can save a lot of time and money, setting detailed spend limits for each card and automatically syncing transaction details to QuickBooks Online. Even better, our service is available on both desktop and smartphone for 24/7 access to our real-time dashboard and controls. Bento for Business was published on Apps.com in July 2017.
What was the main problem you were trying to solve when you first developed Bento?
Small businesses lack the resources that larger companies use to prevent expense leaks, yet have a greater need to understand and control their funds for employee expenses. We want to provide small business owners with an accessible and risk-free solution and help them gain more flexibility, control, and confidence when it comes to managing employee expenses.
What companies (or users) are the best fit for Bento?
Small construction companies love Bento for its on-the-go convenience, but really, Bento is perfect for any small business. If you manage employees and contractors who need to be on the road and/or spend company money as part of their job, Bento will make your life much easier and your money safer by keeping all cards, controls and tracking in one place.
Tell us about your users’ top 3 favorite features or benefits of Bento.
- Flexible and Powerful Spending Controls – Instantly turn a card on or off, and limit when, what and how much each employee can purchase.
- Automatic Fund Reload – The user can turn this on and set how much money they want to be transferred into their Bento account, either on a fixed schedule or when their Bento balance drops to a specified amount.
- Auto-Synced Transactions and Receipts – Employees can take a photo of their receipt, which is automatically tagged to the transaction. Detailed transaction info automatically syncs to QuickBooks Online.
Tell us about your company’s culture and leadership.
We don’t see Bento as a tech company. We care about creating real solutions for real businesses, and this belief guides us every day. As a result, we devote a lot of energy and enthusiasm to taking care of our users and improving Bento based on their feedback.
How is Bento different from your competitors?
Bento is an affordable, risk-free and flexible employee expense management system that combines robust functions with an user-friendly interface. We’re different because we designed our app by addressing the needs of small businesses that are not fulfilled by similar services.
Easy to start – Bento doesn’t require a credit check, so small business owners don’t need to put their personal credit on the line for company spending.
Easy to use – All Bento features are incredibly easy to use and navigate, and can be activated with just a few clicks/taps. Plus, our friendly Customer Success team is always happy to help. Finance may be complicated, but employee expense control doesn’t have to be.
