Product Description

AppZen delivers an AI platform for modern finance teams. Starting with AI-powered auditing of business spend, we automate manual process, uncover problems, and optimize decision making for enterprises around the globe, including one-third of the Fortune 500. Our platform combines patented computer vision, semantic analysis, and deep learning with intelligence from thousands of online sources to understand financial transactions in their business context and make decisions before those transactions happen. AppZen is a must-have for CFOs and their teams to reduce spend, comply with policy, and streamline process.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

Auditing today is riddled with problems and inefficiencies. Currently, auditing is done either with lots of manual reviews, multiple business systems, or with business analytics after payments have occurred. Appzen allows finance teams to audit 100% of their spend in real-time before any dollars are sent out the door. Since AppZen utilizes AI, it is not a rules-based system and can extract and analyze spend data in any form, from any system to identify misuse, waste, and fraud.

What do you like best?

It reduces the number of items to be reviewed, format for review is more efficient, this has attributed to me working more efficiently as I have more time to take on other tasks. The platform is easy to use and very user friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does not appears to be able to convert currency as it seems to be based on USD currency, it will therefore reject an expense that is below the currency threshold as our locations do not report in USD currency but instead in local currency at times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend this product to other customers, this would be cost effective as it frees up employees time to focus on matters, the efficiency and accuracy gain from this system will in deed improve decision making in the future. A fair comparison can be done with what existed before AppZen and after AppZen, AppZen has benefits that far out weight any disadvantage this system might have. If your company is interested in achieving the maximum output at all times, I would suggest you used this system going forward. The benefits are great and the service is excellent, I have no hesitation I recommending this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has definitively made the process of review and approval much easier, it is much more efficient than the old system.

I would however prefer notification once a report is submit, I am not sure if this currently exists. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The software can detect non-compliance such as travel and booking violations, duplicate expense claims, transactions with suspicious merchants, out-of-policy spends, and unscheduled and unnecessary upgrades quickly and accurately.

What do you like best?

The advantage to using Appzen is that low- and medium-risk transactions are auto-approved, while high-risk transactions due to lack of receipts, unreadable receipts, suspicious transactions, high cash spend etc.) remain which capture my attention. This has significantly reduced the time spent on my review of Concur reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. Appzen does not provide me with a notification that there are expense reports which require my review. It requires me to visit the site on a periodic basis to determine if there are reports which require my attention.

2. Given that my local currency is not the US$, transactions are identified as being in excess of the $10,000 threshold, when in reality the US$ transaction value equivalent falls below the threshold. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned before, the immediate benefit realized with AppZen is that the time spent on review of Concur reports has been significantly reduced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is eliminating some of the manual steps and approvals so a time saver on that side. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Doesn’t quite have the seemless link to Concur that enables full transfer of data back and forth (Appzen can get the data fine, but then sharing it back through Concur is not possible). This is likely more a Concur issue than Appzen, but until this connection is fixed it is limiting some of the benefits we otherwise would get. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has automated some workflow and eliminated a lot of manager approvals and saved time. Hard to tell how much it is saving in catching duplicate receipts and other incorrect expenses as the reporting is not 100% there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Appzen took the pressure off of having to look at every report. This saved our company an enormous amount of time. Appzen also has caught different items that were being expensed that were out of compliance with the company. Because of this we were able to stop fraud and so make sure the traveler stays in compliance. I would highly recommend this program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
