Why choosing travel and expense management software is like pruning gooseberries

People prune gooseberry bushes for just one reason – to grow more gooseberries. It’s about making the bush more productive. About achieving more with less. Put another way, it’s about productivity; about increasing yield. And that’s why it’s like choosing travel and expense management software. Here’s the reasoning…

Productive fruit bushes need to be free from deadwood with space to flourish and allow them to do what comes naturally.

Without the right conditions, they’ll produce fruit, but each berry will be smaller, and there will be fewer of them.

Your business is no different if it’s choked with cumbersome systems and tasks that add no value, but must be done all the same. The trick is to do them quickly and effectively, freeing up time for more productive tasks; for adding value of the business, and money to the bottom line.

It’s all summed up in the line: “Don’t bring me problems, bring me solutions.” Well, here we are. Solo Expenses: the solution for anyone facing a problem in their hunt for effective travel expense management software.

Feature-rich expense management app
Solo Expenses is a feature-rich cloud based expense management software app that lives on your smartphone.

We’ve created it with you in mind, trimming away all the complicated parts and hiding them in the background, so they all still get done. But you don’t have to worry about them. In short, we’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to  – and satisfied customers in almost 100 countries would tell you how helpful they’ve found it (even those number themselves speak volumes!)

1. We’ve made it easy: there are multiple ways to record any expense, travel or otherwise. The phone keypad, its camera, or even your own voice can do the job quickly. Spending can be collated into lists, and these can be exported to an accountant in a number of file formats.

2. We’ve made it intuitive: Smartphone users can learn how to use our software package to manage expenses in minutes. Because they already know how smartphones work, they’re already prepared to ‘drive’ Solo Expenses, the learning curve is short and shallow!

3. We’ve made it fast: Because of the way Solo Expenses records your spending, you can record an expense whilst a receipt is being generated, so the job’s done before you leave the store or hotel reception, or wherever. You can link Solo Expenses to a company credit card too, so there’s no need to mix company and private money. Think of the time that could save!

4. We’ve made it effective: Claiming or approving expenses can be done with our online expenses management app wherever you are – so long as you have WiFi access, of course. Over coffee in a motorway service area, in a hotel room at night, or in a departure lounge. Solo Expenses is ready to work for you at any time of day or night; and as a ‘instant readiness’ tool, you know no jobs will be left over for times when you have other things to focus on.

5. We’ve made it universal: Solo Expenses works with you, no matter where you are in the world. It switches currencies almost instantly, so no matter where in the world you are, our product is in tune with the local economy. You can convert everything back to your ‘home’ currency when the trip’s over – all you have to tell the software is the exchange rate.
