BY ON October 12, 2017

“Xero for us, was the perfect tool to give us the ability to easily understand what our financials look like at the moment” says Sebastian.

 

Sebastian Freude, chief of staff at San Francisco-based Good & Co, has a belief that there are no bad employees or companies – just a bad fit. So it’s no surprise that he sought the right partnerships to take his company forward. That’s where Expensify came in to help capture their expenses.

BY ON September 5, 2017

Over the last 10 years, technology has driven huge amounts of change in the finance sector, redefining the very foundations the industry was built on. This fintech revolution is being powered by a wave of disruptive startups.

As a small business owner, one important way to boost your bottom line and pave the way for future growth is by embracing cloud-based applications. Not only are cloud applications for functions such as accounting scalable and affordable, they are often more reliable and more secure than if you tried to install and maintain software on your company’s own computers and servers.

#1: You’ll boost your bottom line
