Solo Expenses moves in the big league of accounting software

Solo Expenses has moved even closer to the heart of small business financial management with its ability to integrate with leading accounting software packages.

The small business expense tracker app has the power to integrate with mainstream accounting software to create a seamless means to manage employee expenses with the minimum of effort.

Links with Sage 50, QuickBooks, Xero, Tally, and with FreshBooks coming in the future are all available in the Solo Expenses business expense tracker app, which has undergone continuous development and enhancement since its introduction to the field in 2003.

Co-Funder Sunita Nigam explained: “Solo Expenses has always kept in mind that we were determined to make life easier for people in business. We have always wanted them to have accurate information at their fingertips with the minimum of effort.

“We always saw the repeated re-keying of data as a weakness in any system. Not only does it take longer, but the effort adds no value and is prone to the introduction of errors, which then absorb more valuable time in putting them right.”

The Solo Expenses answer, she explained, had been to re-think the way the expense management process worked, and in doing so to eliminate unnecessary effort.

“The use of ‘industry standard’ accounting software by businesses was the obvious route for us to take,” she said. “By integrating our product with those the companies are already familiar with, we have been able to develop a seamless flow of information from the moment an expense is incurred. Our expense manager app has the power to capture data from the photograph of a receipt, which it can read to identify the date, value of the send, and the supplier. This can be used in an expense claim which can be made and approved at the flick of a thumb anywhere in the world.

“And now, the details are flashed back into the right place in the company accounts with no further need for human intervention, leaving employees free to get on with earning revenue, which is what they’re at work to do anyway.”

How to integrate our software

Control of integration is through the Solo Expenses user dashboard. “We have created a series of short video presentations to show how it works. The Quickbooks one is at this link, but the principal is the same for all of the accounting packages shown.”

What’s more, Solo Expenses charges for features only when they’re activated in the dashboard, so the pricing model won’t tie businesses into long, expensive, and unnecessary contracts.

Said Sunita: “Our objective in creating what we believe to be the best expense manager app has always been to present businesses with an effective tool to make them more efficient, and to do so in a way that’s fair to all of us from a financial point of view. It’s fair to say that there’s every chance the savings made from adopting Solo Expenses as the business expense tracker app of choice will actually generate revenue, since the financial and time savings accruing from its use are likely to be worth more than it costs to adopt. It may sound hard to believe, but it continues to be true for our clients, who operate in more than 90 countries…”
