Here's to a bright new year

Rodolphe Ardant

We can all agree that 2020 will live long in our memories!

Like most businesses, it has been a very intense yet transformative year at Spendesk. Despite the peculiar environment, our focus has and will continue to remain the same, which is to find creative solutions to help our customers spend smarter. 

As we close out 2020, we’d like to say thank you and best wishes for the new year! Our team has put together a little video that we hope you enjoy.

Thank you for making it all possible!

It’s rewarding to now serve 2,500 businesses in 36 countries. That’s a lot of Purple cards going around the world! And together, we achieved some incredible milestones this year: 

  • €725 million spent in just 2020
  • 1.6 million receipts and invoices captured (and countless hours saved)
  • 50,000 active subscriptions

It all adds up to one giant step forward in our mission to help companies spend smarter. 

Our highlights of the year

  • Fast employee reimbursements with wire transfers
  • Automatic receipt chasing with Play by the Rules 
  • A two-way Datev integration for German companies
  • Deeper spending insights with the Spend Trends dashboards
  • A more robust mobile app with virtual cards
  • Increased visibility with the Controller Dashboard
  • Peace of mind with our fraud detection engine

Looking forward to 2021

We already have a few BIG plans for next year:

  • A brand new bookkeeping interface with more features, automation and integrations.
  • A robust budget tracker for your teams to stay on top of their budgets.
  • End-to-end supplier invoice management with purchase orders & wire transfers.

Until then, we hope you enjoy the end of the year with your loved ones. And see you next year for more adventures!
