The world has changed over the last three decades and it’s time expense management
Fyle has invented a new, intuitive way to turn expense reporting real-time. Employees
submit expenses on-the-go within apps they use everyday – Gmail, Outlook, Slack,
WhatsApp, phone gallery. There’s more — all expenses are submitted only after being
checked for policies. This means employees get notified right within these apps if they’re
violating any company policies.
- A modern corporate card reconciliation software that’ll give your bank’s software a run
for their money.
- Automation for literally any expense approval workflow — dependent on employee,
expense, policy — give us your most complex one.
- Analytics that’ll keep you on top of everything expenses. MIS, budgets, team-wise
spends, top violations, you name it.

What was the main problem you were trying to solve when you first developed Fyle?
“Realising that there are millions of companies where employees complain and hate
their expense report process – it was possible for us to solve a large global problem.
Discussing this problem with Siva, who was a long-time friend and co-worker at Qubole,
we came up with a very unique solution that keeps employee experience at the core of
the product while providing enterprises with a powerful solution for policy compliance

Tell us about your company’s culture and leadership.
We’re a little over 100 employees today. Since Fyle was born out of a personal
frustration, our vision of solving expense management is embedded in all of our DNAs.
What binds us together though is just solving this problem in a way that people don’t
spend even two minutes thinking about expenses. It’s just an engine that runs smoothly
in the background.
How is Fyle different from your competitors?
“It’s unfortunate that companies struggle with expense management in 2020. Expense
management should just be a process running smoothly in the background.”
– Yash Madhusudhan, CEO, Fyle and sworn enemy of expense reports
Fyle was born out of a personal frustration. We’ve been on both sides. We’re aware of
the frustration that comes along with being disciplined towards submitting expenses —
setting aside a Sunday every month and compromising personal time in order to get the
money we spent for our companies. We also understand that for any expense
management software to succeed, people have to use it. It’s 2020 — people will only use
it if they love it. Hence, unlike conventional softwares, we don’t just focus on mobile and
web apps. We believe that great experience goes beyond traditional web and mobile
interfaces. Fyle has built a screenless experience right inside apps people use everyday.
This is a whole new approach which just works.
With Fyle, employees submit expenses as they happen. There’s no magic — we’ve just
ensured that Fyle is super intuitive and present in apps people use everyday — inside
Gmail, Outlook, WhatsApp, Slack, their phone gallery, camera, etc. We’ve extended this
real-time expense reporting to help companies too. When expenses are being submitted
from these daily apps, they’re also being checked for policies. This means when they
land in the finance team’s bucket to approve or reimburse, they’re compliant and
audit-ready. This is a perfect example of how you can achieve compliance by just
focusing on the best employee experience.
