How many expense reports does a user at PubNub process with Tallie?

Kristen: Users at PubNub process anywhere from one to ten expense reports with Tallie per month.

How long have you been using Tallie?

Kristen: We’ve been using Tallie here at PubNub for about a year and a half now, if I recall correctly.

What do you love most about Tallie? What makes Tallie the best expense management solution for you?

Kristen: I love that Tallie completely eliminated paper in our expense reporting process. I also love how easy it is to upload a receipt using the Tallie app.

Joe: To put it plain and simple, it’s the ease of use. No hoops to jump through, no lost reports, and getting reimbursed on time. It’s a truly wonderful experience for our team.

Assaf: It’s proactive because it reminds ME to submit an expense report. It connects to the credit card information I use for work related expenses. It’s a web tool, so there’s nothing to install, nothing to print, and it’s easy to track where it is in the approval stages. Plus, I enjoy their sense of humor: “Ready to get reimbursed?”

How much time have you saved with Tallie?

Assaf: More than time! It’s the difference between postponing my expense report – sometimes indefinitely – and getting it all done in few minutes. It also saves multiple trips to the copy machine and printer.

Kristen: More so than time – Tallie has saved me from many headaches.  Before Tallie, I had employees randomly throwing printed-out Excel spreadsheets and piles of receipts on my desk.  The entire expense process was completely unorganized and was creating a ton of extra work for me.

How much paper do your users save with Tallie?

Assaf: Depends on how good you are at building an efficient collage of receipts on a piece of letter size paper. I suck at this so… a lot!

What other tools do you use or recommend for use with Tallie?

Kristen: We like how Tallie syncs with  This allows us to immediately export employee expense reports from Tallie directly into our billing system.

Do you require your users to use Tallie for expense reports?

Kristen: Yes. If they want to be reimbursed, this is their only option.

How do you encourage users to use Tallie for expense reports?

Kristen: As mentioned above, this is the only way we process expenses so it’s not hard to encourage people use it when they want their money.

Joe: The platform really wasn’t hard to sell. As soon as our company saw how easy it was to use Tallie, there was no encouraging required. People wanted ease of use and time reimbursement, and that’s what Tallie provides us.
