Add control to your spendings
With More Control on Cards - Advanced (available only on some billing plans) it's not only possible to control the budget, but also to pre-select which categories of spendings are allowed on a card and on what day of the week the card can be used.
Administrators/Controllers, this new feature will :
Enable finance/administration teams to reduce unwanted expenses
allow you to know how money is being spent (pre-approve spend categories and days)
support Spendesk spending policies
improve spending habits
but also help to solve problems at the corporate level:
Approval / pre-approval process
Risk card sharing: each member can now have a personal card with its own limited categories.
Blocking of employees who do not have access to means of payment
Lack of visibility or control over expenses
