Businesses are loving ClearSpend

Business owners, managers, accountants, and bookkeepers from all walks of life are getting pumped up about what ClearSpend can do for them.

“Clearspend is a game changer for managing employee spend. We own 5 self-storage properties and have always been challenged with reimbursing local contractors for adhoc expenses. Clearspend lets us issue virtual card with specific spending limits, eliminating the back and forth of manual reimbursement. Also great for issuing cards to our managers for regular company spend. These guys should be charging for the service—can't believe it's free.”

G2 reviewer and small business administrator

“I like the different buckets of the spend, that right there saves me time. I love the virtual card, it’s a no brainer for all our people. The dashboard is a nice, quick, easy access point, it's all right there in front of you. There's so many things that are a home run for us. And it makes our jobs in managing those cards much easier. Sign me up. I'm ready!”

Michael G
Facilities Management Company Owner

"The mass amount of cards is a huge thing for us, and then also being able to set that budget and spending limits, it's a really big deal. It’s fantastic for reducing the amount of theft that we have to process. ClearSpend’s virtual cards are great too. The virtual cards we’ve been using with Chase are so complicated to set up. It usually takes three people working for an hour and a half to get one established, and then it still takes 24 hours before it's active, so fixing that issue is great. Also, it’s fantastic that it’s free because I’m tired of paying all these fees."
