Create custom approval flows
Design approval processes that suit your requirements. Customize approvals based on your chosen criteria and ensure transactions are routed to the right people.
Set up criteria-based approval
Don't prefer rigid, hierarchical approvals? No stress. Zoho Expense allows you to create approval flows with custom criteria based on and/or logic. For example, whenever an expense report has more than five policy violations and a total less than $1000, you assign the project head to be the approver.
Create multi-stage approval flows
Zoho Expense gives you the option to create multiple levels of approval for a transaction. This ensures that no approval request goes without the appropriate vetting. You can add up to 10 levels of approval.
Choose your approval method
For these multiple levels, you can choose different people to approve as well. With options like project and department heads, and even choosing the approver manually, Zoho Expense gives you the flexibility of setting up your preferred approval methods.
If you don't want to manually approve every routine request or report, you can choose to automate the approval. For example, reports with amounts less than $10 and without any policy violations can be automatically approved. Furthermore, you can choose to auto-reject transactions as well.
Approve on the move
With our fully functional mobile applications for iOS and Android, approvals don't have to be bound to your desktop. Save time, and approve transactions from anywhere you are.
One of my responsibilities is to oversee the AP function, and expense reporting is by far one of the most tedious aspects. Zoho Expense helps alleviate a bit of that headache with their online and mobile app platforms that allow users to upload and submit information electronically. Moreover, Zoho Expense has the capability to export their information in far more detailed fashions than other desktop and mobile applications including AMEX and Citi. I also like the approver and reminder functionality the app enables for the management team.

I believe, the most convenient feature for our employees is the easy-to-use mobile version of the tool. You click a picture of the bill you just spent on, select the relevant expense head and hit submit. Additionally, scanned copies of bills/ receipts, expenses, approvals, comments are now available in one report which forms the basis for any reimbursement claim posted to our accounting software.

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.
In the past, I spent a ton of time chasing down our company credit card users because they often did not provide me with the receipt or even notation of their spending, so when the statement came, I had no idea which budget areas to pay the invoice from. Now, they each have a Zoho Expense account to track their spending in, and since getting the receipts into the account is so easy, and they can see their own bank feeds, it is working tickety-boo!
