A significant portion of corporate spending is often done using personal cards, petty cash, and checks. This highlights the importance of digitizing and modernizing corporate spend management, which in turn, reduces the reconciliation and manual work by accountants, resulting in significant time savings.

Qashio’s virtual and physical cards and software allow businesses to manage their spending more automated and transparently, saving hundreds of man-hours and reducing petty cash leakage in the process. Finance and HR departments benefit from better expense reporting, better visibility, control of cash flows and an empowered workforce.
