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…..

On the heels of our recent and popular ‘track mileage expenses with Google maps integration’ feature we have come out with another zinger of a feature (currently in beta mode). This is the ReceiptFWD feature that is available on the web application AND on our mobile app (in the Email tab).
Let’s discuss the current challenge:
Users receive receipts in emails from Airline or Hotel vendors that they have to download and then attach -OR- have to save the email as a PDF and attach it to the expense transaction
Our new email feature (in beta mode) allows users to FWD an email that has a single PDF receipt attachment to a fixed email account (example: email@example.com). If there is an attachment in the email, the application will automatically insert that into the receipt box within Gorilla Expense.
The user can also enter keywords in the body of the email (like: ‘Expense Type Meals’, ‘Total $200′) and the application will enter those values in the expense transaction within Gorilla Expense. This way when the user logs in to the application, the transaction in complete. See below for an email example, where the user is FWDing an email with a PDF receipt and has inserted keywords for the application to complete the transaction.
If the email does not have a PDF receipt attached and if the email itself functions as a receipt, then the user simple needs to FWD the email for the application to create a PDF of the body of the email and attach it to the receipt box in Gorilla Expense. Similar to above, the user can use keywords to fill in the other details of the transaction. This is especially useful since many airline companies no longer provide attachments. Below is an example of a user FWDing the email itself.
The benefit of this feature is that solves the pain of having to manage expense related data that can come in from another source, namely email. We expect this to make traveler’s lives a lot easier.
So, the next time you get ready to do your expense report, these transactions along with receipts are waiting in the mobile app or the web app, ready to be dropped into an expense report. Click – Click – 4 seconds and your expense report is done!

We recently updated our mobile app to offer a very cool new feature from within the mobile app for receipt management. Users can now attach receipts from their Dropbox account to transactions on the mobile app! (If you don’t have a Dropbox account yet, don’t worry – we won’t judge you. We will however make fun of you :). Sign up is very easy.)
The attached receipts can be standard .jpg or .png receipts taken with a camera. But the great thing about it is that now you can also attach multi-page PDF receipts! Super convenient is what we are shooting for with this feature and it delivers. Here is what it looks like:
During the 1st-time login, the app will ask the user for permission to link to their Dropbox account. Once the user approves, the user can attach anything from their Dropbox account.
We recommend users to create a ‘Receipts’ folder within their Dropbox and access that from our mobile app. That way everything is organized better and data management becomes easier.
From a process standpoint it is easy as Apple Pie (or cake; we forget). Simply click on ‘Add Photo’, select ‘Dropbox’ and pick the respective receipt from there. Finito!
Hope you find this feature to be useful while crossing the Seven Seas. As always, contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to discuss in more detail!
Gorilla Expense released a new feature where users can set default values to certain transactional fields within the web application. Some of the fields are ‘Country’, ‘Currency Type’, ‘Pay Method’, ‘State’ and ”City’. The goal with this feature is to reduce the hassle of data entry for every user. Plus, if certain non-changing fields are defaulted, the chances of errors are reduced.
This feature is expected to expedite the expense creation process for users. Used in conjunction with our intuitive and simple mobile app, users can expect to compile and submit their expense reports in seconds!
We have made a few updates to our mobile apps. These updates improve transactional level functionality and fix a few bugs. All in all, updates that our customers love and that makes their traveling lives easier.
So take a look when you get a chance. Our app is available on the Android, iPhone and BlackBerry platforms. If you have any specific queries, send us a message – firstname.lastname@example.org
