Who are they?
Pleo is a business expenses solution that empowers employees to buy the things they need for work, all while keeping a company’s finance team in control of spending.
Through fintech we’ve seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending.
20,000+ companies and 150K+ users across Europe are already trusting Pleo.
Let's talk about the maelstrom that is “company spending”.
Picture this, if you will; you're one of the lucky employees who are at a high enough level to get your very own company credit card (yay!), but you're also the only one in your team who has one (boo). Come month-end, you gather the eclectic pile of crumpled receipts and invoices that’s been building up on your desk (booooooooo). You nag your team ("please please give me all your receipts today!") and your inbox becomes cluttered with pictures of blurred receipts, illegible handwritten invoices and seemingly random flight confirmations.
It's one big puzzle, and you're not in the mood for riddles.
Oh, what a joy it is to be a manager. You block off your whole Friday to deal with untangling the spiderweb. You go through the gigantic spreadsheet that the Head of Finance has sent you, and you begin matching receipts to the multitude of missing expenses.
There’s an Alibaba order, which you don't know how to categorise (to be honest, you don't even know what it was for), the receipt for that team lunch seems to have disappeared into the ether, and one of your team accidentally added a personal item to the hotel bill at the company retreat.
Happy Friday to you. Surely there must be a better solution? Enter Pleo.
Pleo is solving today's company spending problem. We empower all employees with their own card, and a handy mobile app to gather all the data for you. Everyone is trusted with spending company money. After all, if you're trusted enough to be hired, you should be trusted to spend money responsibly, right?
