Reimbursements are a reality for pretty much every company. 

Employees always need to buy things for work. Lunch on the way to a client meeting, coffee for a new team member or a bulk stationery order for the office? Just Pleo it. 

But the thing is, you can’t always bank on being able to use your company card. Whether you’ve left your Pleo card at home or the shop is cash only, sometimes teams have to use their own money for a work purchase.

Until now, this could cause chaos for finance teams. Outstanding repayments, time-consuming expense reports, endless requests for approval and uncontrollable cash flow are a recipe for a nightmare end-of-month. Not to mention, employees are often left struggling to make ends meet while they wait months for their money to be returned.

With Pleo, reimbursements are refreshingly easy. 

Employees submit their receipts in the app, and our clever OCR technology scans each one for the important details (bye bye, human error). Managers can either trigger the repayment at a time that suits them or give employees the freedom to reimburse themselves. Meanwhile, finance teams can trust that expenses are being submitted, approved and processed in line with company policy. So even if teams aren’t using their Pleo cards, they can still enjoy the wonderfully simple and intuitive Pleo experience.
