Very user-friendly expense management platform!

Pros

Easy to navigate, you can save reports and continue later.

Cons

If it had an smartphone app too, that would be perfect!

Hi John, Thank you for your review. Although we don't yet have a smartphone app and we should look into it, we have a smartphone or «mobile» login on the main page that you can use to fill out an expense report, take a picture of your receipt, and submit your report. You should note that the current mobile login has fewer functionalities than the login connection.

Nice tool !

- We no longer need to have different excel spreadsheets for each provinces (for different tax rates), and we do not need to update some of the changing tax features, such as large companies. - Reduce paper printed. - Easier approval process - Very good customer services

Pros

- Ability to directly save invoices into the system from a camera - Automatic calculation of mileage - Calculation of taxes according to the applicable rules.

Cons

- The speed of the system; when you click on a tab it takes a few seconds to get to the new page. - The mobile application could be more complete and allow to never need the computer.

Reasons for Choosing Advataxes

Advatxes is a local supplier and we feel customer support is important.

Good concept, still place for improvement

Good! But definitively place for improvement on user friendliness.

Pros

Scanning of invoice right away. Easy place to store the invoice picture

Cons

Unable to write a title to a scanned invoice for easy usage later on. Unable to forward a pdf invoice received in an email (from an hotel). No app on iPhone so not able to use without Internet access. Not able to start simultaneously two separate expense reports (for example, one for expenses on Company credit card and one for expenses made on personal credits card or else, like traveling kilometer expenses).

Reasons for Choosing Advataxes

Recommended by Accounting. Only option presented to me. Still better than Excel file...

Hello Pierre, thank you for your assessment. As for the drop down menus, you probably realized that you can access your historical expense reports including your KM incurred and expenses per category. We are pleased that you are finding these features easy to use.

Advataxes

It helps to make the work easier without the use of a printer. reduced the work load as cell phones are used by everyone all the time. Fast and very reliable.

Pros

Can be used from anywhere when you have a cell phone with you. Fast and reliable. Good help from the support team whenever required.

Cons

This software doesn't seemed to be designed well for the cell phones as the pages don't load/ appear appropriately while loading the software. It can be redesigned/ adjusted for the use of cellphones so that the pages will fit on the cellphone screen.
