The new updated mobile app from Gorilla Expense brings with it several nifty features. The main goal with these features is to make it easier for travelers to submit expenses, for managers to approve expense reports, and reimbursements to happen faster. Here is a quick look at some of the key features:
OCR – The new and updated OCR makes scanning even faster and spits out the results more accurately. Of course, this feature is more commonly used with out of pocket expenses rather than corporate credit card expenses.
Splitting an Expense – If you have scenarios where expenses need to be split between multiple expense types / GL codes or between different departments or companies, in the latest version of the mobile app, the user can apply splits either ‘By Amount’ or ‘By Percentage’. The actual splitting process is applied via a simple guided wizard type process, so that it is intuitive and easy for the user.
Timesheets – This one is a biggie! If you have also signed up for our timesheet solution, then the user can also create and submit timesheets from the mobile app, making it a one-stop app to get both time and expenses done.
Touch ID – In the latest version the user has the option of enabling touch ID. This way you don’t have to remember any pesky passwords. (Just make sure to bring your finger along with you… Ha!)
With this blurb, we wanted to offer a quick view of some of the new features that have already been released. Stay tuned for more. We are playing with some cool ideas and plan to release more new features in the coming months…..

Gorilla Expense offer an innovate spend management solution for companies of all sizes. The three main components of this solution are T&E Expense Reporting, Timesheets, and P-card Reconciliation.
While the solution is typically deployed as SaaS, Gorilla Expense also supports On-Premise deployments.
While automation in T&E expense reporting has been rapidly increasing, many businesses are still not taking full advantage of it. SMEs are still lagging in automating their T&E, despite the increasing availability technological advances. Cloud-based and mobile apps are the future of T&E management, yet adoption is slow even when it comes to getting an automated expense management solution.
Many who are not fully automated in their T&E management or are using entirely manual processes report many obstacles in their expense reporting procedures. According to a leading 2016 Travel and Expense Management Report, 63% of SMEs still rely on entirely manual T&E processes, while 38% of average business entities are still stuck in the same manual systems.
“While there is growing availability of T&E automation options that could fit any company’s size and needs, the greatest challenge lies in change management, i.e. making decision makers take that step towards fully automating and streamlining their T&E processes,” says Gorilla Expense. “SMEs tend to carefully weigh the so-called ‘pains’ of switching against the many short- and long-term benefits.”
Many organizations in the report believe that their current T&E processes are effective, and are therefore unwilling to shift to newer technologies. For example, the primary method for receipt management is via emails, resulting in lost documents, delays, and potential compliance issues. This in return causes further struggles and inefficiencies. End result: these companies struggle with costly T&E processes, inability to enforce corporate travel policies, lack of visibility, and lengthy reimbursement cycles.
Meanwhile, 90% of large corporations, are now fully or partially automated. Due to this, they are seeing plenty of benefits that go beyond just a solid ROI. These benefits include lower processing costs, improved visibility, better enforcement of policies, quicker reimbursement periods, improved fraud detection, better negotiation with merchants for volume discounts, and better overall employee satisfaction.
However, despite automation, many are still using disparate systems, therefore still causing delays, frustrations, and inefficiencies that could have been avoided with streamlined, integrated systems and infrastructure.
Another key point, according to the report is that many small businesses are foregoing automation and sticking to their manual processes primarily because they believe that they are too small for such systems. In fact, nearly 30% are still using Excel spreadsheets for their expenses.
Despite many options and opportunities to automate, many companies are still slow to adopt and there are still some that would rather continue with their handwritten expense reports and spreadsheets—simply because they are used to it! These companies must take a cue from the best-in-class organizations who are moving towards mobile, cloud-based, and integrated systems that make T&E reporting a breeze. Here is a metric to think about: if you have over 30 expense reports to process monthly, the ROI is there, and it would be more economical to switch to automated expense reporting. You can test this by using our free Expense Reporting Automation Savings calculator.

There is always room for improvement when it comes to anything, and so, you’re probably reading this because you want to improve the current expense management system and processes you have.
So before shopping and procuring an expense management software, you have to look at the specific requirements of your organization. What does the day to day operations look like from an expense standpoint? Is the software going to scale and adapt to your needs? Do you deal with international travel and booking that needs to be addressed? Does your business use corporate credit cards?
Now that you have figured out your unique requirements, you have a better idea of what to look for to make your expense management so much more efficient. Take a look at these expense management software must-haves:
- Corporate credit card integration. This avoids corporate credit card expenses from slipping through the cracks, which can cost the company a lot in the long run. The software should be able to automatically import corporate card expenses and provide to the user for reconciliation.
- Mobile apps for Real-time tracking. Today’s technology makes it easy to capture receipts with just a click of a smartphone camera. This should be a standard feature of your software, in addition to easy mileage tracking using maps. If there is OCR in the mobile app, that would be a bonus!
- Real-time reporting. Time is money, and reports should be easy to create and submit without any delay. The software must be able to organize reports while providing a clear picture of T&E spend, which helps with improved visibility for the organization.
- Timely reimbursements. Reimbursements must occur in a timely manner, and automation plays a big part in this. The software should be able to support reimbursements either via payroll or through the ERP/Accounting system. It also helps to have automatic notifications and reminders for employees to submit their receipts to move things along.
- Easy Accounting system integration. The software must seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Dynamics ERP so that all the data can be automatically pushed into Dynamics and reconciled. This also avoids manual work, duplications and redundancy, while making the finance team’s lives much more efficient.
- Customer support. You should be able to easily implement your system, with solid adoption amongst your employees. If there are any issues, the software vendor must be able to address these promptly and thoroughly.
