SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Expensify, the fastest growing expense reporting software worldwide, announced today that it has partnered with Uber on the launch of the ridesharing company’s new “Auto-Expense” tool. Auto-Expense, which helps Expensify customers who use Uber keep work and personal rides separate, automatically sends a copy of a customer's Uber receipt to Expensify for reimbursement while they're traveling for business. Auto-Expense is part of Uber's new "Business Profiles" feature.
“As someone who is always on the road for work, the new Auto-Expense feature makes tracking my Uber rides so much easier,” said David Barrett, founder and CEO of Expensify. “And after a long business trip, the last thing I want to do is sort through my email to find every single Uber ride I took. Expensify is thrilled to partner with Uber on this awesome new feature to help our customers save time and money by making sure they never pay out of pocket for an business-related Uber ride again!”
To activate Auto-Expense, all you need to do is go to your Business Profile located in “Settings” in the Uber app, select “Expensing” and choose Expensify when prompted to “Select Your Platform.” Then just enter your work email address, and select “Connect.”
"With nearly one million people activating business profiles, business travel has become one of Uber's fastest-growing segments. Providing the ability for our riders to automatically submit their receipts for expense reimbursement is a logistical step forward in making trips more seamless," said Max Crowley, Lead of Uber for Business. "Thanks to our partnership with Expensify, we can ensure that business travelers never have to pay out of pocket for business trips on Uber again."
