Once Kirusa started expanding globally, their number of employees began increasing and the manual work of reporting employees’ expenses simultaneously increased as well. The reports were manually submitted on paper and accounts were managed by the finance team in Excel, which became a tedious task. This is when Kirusa started looking for a better solution. They initially started using other cloud based solutions, however, they soon realized that it wasn't helping them with their reporting and accounting of expenses. Though it reduced the team’s workload, they had to spend a significant amount of time learning their way around the software defeated the purpose of having a new solution. This became even more difficult when their customer success team was unable to resolve the problems. This became even more time consuming to report and account expenses, which led to further delay in procedures for Kirusa.
Kirusa wanted software with robust features to help them better manage employee expenses, especially looking for advance payments and better analytics features. Zoho Expense perfectly suited their request and they were able to implement the needed features quickly.The friendly UI helped them easily understand how everything worked, which led to quick employee adoption.
In 2017, Kirusa decided to switch to Zoho Expense to accelerate their expense reporting process. Their team wanted software with robust features to help them better manage employee expenses, especially looking for advance payments and better analytics features. Zoho Expense perfectly suited their request and they were able to implement the needed features quickly. Before Zoho Expense, the time taken to report and account these employee expenses was calculated in days. After this implementation, they started seeing huge differences in time taken to process expense reports, which now only takes minutes to complete. This helped reduce all manual paperwork, saving trees while saving time. The direct integration with QuickBooks helped manage their company accounts, as well. With an informative dashboard, Kirusa is now able to track down the status of all pending, ongoing, and completed employee expense reports. The major reasons for Kirusa to move away from the other software were due to increased pricing and lack of support. Zoho Expense had a reasonable price and the 24/5 assistance from the support team, which helped Kirusa resolve any issues they came across and giving them the smoothest journey possible.
“Implementing Zoho Expense was one of the best decisions for Kirusa,” said Rao, the finance head for Kirusa. As an organization, they're very satisfied with Zoho Expense for various reasons, one of them being great customer support. On top of that, the friendly UI helped them easily understand how everything worked, which led to quick employee adoption. Zoho Expense’s informative dashboard, mobile applications, direct links to the credit cards, various integrations, and advance payments are just a few of the features Kirusa loves.
"The best thing that I like about Zoho Expense is how it allows everyone to convert a paper receipt into a digital format by snapping it with their mobile's camera. Without Zoho Expense, we would probably be using another system with a less optimal balance between costs and features."
"Expense reporting has been so easy after we started using Zoho Expense. The efficiency of expense reporting and reimbursement has improved multifold."
"Not just for all business teams, Zoho has helped the accounting team as well. Expense related reports are all available at one place. A remarkable thing about the Zoho experience, is the constant support they give us, for every little query. Zoho has made life easier for us."
