Our core goals are to create the world’s best expenses management and company payment solutions. Expend is powered by a team of skilled and passionate individuals all driven to create pioneering products that make expenses effortless.
The idea for Expend was sparked by the frustrations experienced by our founders, Johnny and Rudolph, when they had to process their own expenses. Although there were options out there that tried to make the process easier, these still involved clunky software, time-consuming processes or inaccurate human data entry (commonly off-shored). They put their heads together and were inspired to start developing real-time, automatic expensing payment technology that does away with the fundamental issues of an old-fashioned process…enter Expend.
These days, you can find us at our offices in Shoreditch, delved into lines of code, sipping coffee or turning the ping pong table into a battle zone… (it gets competitive!).
We love it when our customers praise our hard work, but we also quite like it when the industry and press give us praise.
In September 2018 we were proud to be shortlisted for three 2018 Payments Awards. Payments Startup of the Year, B2B Payments Innovation of the Year and last but not least: Best Prepaid Card Solution.
In October 2018, Global Banking and Finance Review awarded us “The Best New Expenses Fintech UK 2018″
