Takeaways
  • EXPENSE AWARENESS: Employees are now more aware of their cost spending. They have access to the funds as agreed in the budget.
  • SAVINGS- TIME AND MONEY: Reduction in the time spent by the finance team on invoice processing and remitting payment.
  • AUTOMATION: Direct interface between systems makes the process efficient as duplication of manual work is reduced.

The Challenge

  • Limited company cards: Making expense claims on Xero, whenever an employee purchased on behalf of the company was a tricky situation for the Nimbus team. There were limited company cards, and were accessible only by the managers, so initially they had to manage employee needs on their own, thus costing them a lot of time and requiring a lot of effort.


  • Missing receipts: Often the receipts went missing, and keeping a track of employee receipts is definitely not among the top priorities of a CFO/CEO.


  • Manual entry into accounting software: The finance team had to spend hours and hours hunting for all the receipts and then manually entering the data into their accounting software for bookkeeping.


The Solution

Nimbus, an office cleaning company based in Singapore started using Volopay in March 2020 and immediately distributed Volopay's physical and virtual cards to every employee. Now all their business expenses are made via Volopay. With individual cards for every employee, managers don't need to do purchases for the employees, and they can themselves make the necessary expenses required for a smooth workflow. Plus all the expenses are tracked in real-time by the managers, that is, the time they are incurred. So the expense automation comes with a great amount of spend visibility and transparency.

The Result

Increased Efficiency: The employees have great independence in accessing the company's funds and they feel empowered. There are very few fields of which the employees are required to fill in, making things easier for the finance team (they do not need to undo the COA booking mistakes that most employees make).


Accounting Integrations:  All expenses made via Volopay can be integrated with accounting software. This eliminates the need for manual data entry and doing transaction reviews on the finance team's end.


Savings: Nimbus' team has saved a considerable amount of man-hours that they previously had to allocate for the reviewing and sorting processes for claims and/or ad hoc transactions performed using the corporate credit cards.
