Corporate Expense Cards: Save Time & Money with Jeeves

If you’re on the lookout for corporate expense cards, you’ve probably run into these obstacles:  

  • As your company grows, so does your admin. This means managing expense reports and reimbursing employee expense claims takes time you could put to better use in forecasting and budgeting.
  • Using traditional cards from financial institutions means you won’t see your transactions until end of the month, which can delay your month-end close reporting.
  • Without up-to-date expense data, it’s a struggle to catch and thwart fraud and expense abuse. 
  • Onboarding new employees takes time. Legacy expense cards may take weeks to arrive or they may not ship at to certain regions at all.

In this quick guide, we’re going to show how Jeeves corporate expense cards can help you overcome your current challenges. We’ll cover:

If you’re ready to integrate corporate expense cards into your business and modernise your spending management, get in touch today, and we can set up your account in as little as 24 hours.

Access multi-currency expense cards

We’ve learned a lot about managing business expenses and cash flow when you’re spread across the planet. 

And we’ve built Jeeves precisely to help international companies manage expenses and spending without hindering your international growth and team morale. 

We help you bridge your global cash flow in a few ways: 

  • Multi-currency options so you can manage company expenses in up to 7 currencies: USD, GBP, CAD, EUR, COP, BRL and MXN
  • Issue cards in different currencies based on the cardholder’s primary location or main travel destination, and not solely on your company’s headquarters
  • Cashback on company expenses paid via your Jeeves cards to help increase your cash flow. Get up to 2% in the first 90 days, then one to 1.5% thereafter. 

Let’s look at a real-world example. 

Say you’re based in Canada but have operations in Europe and the U.S. You can issue your corporate expense care in USD or EUR instead of CAD, so you’re not tied to Canada’s currency for every expense.  

This is exactly what Canadian mobility startup Spare does to manage global expenses from teams in 50 cities (more on this later).

How one of our clients manages their expenses with Jeeves

Spare is a mobility startup based in Vancouver, Canada, and founded in 2015. They build operating systems for mobility businesses and organisations in the private and public sectors. As they’ve grown internationally, they kept coming up against a huge obstacle: they struggled to keep up with all the expenses reported haphazardly by team members across the globe.

As soon as Spare joined Jeeves, we immediately resolved this issue.  

They instantly issued business expense cards to their employees and, with the help of their Jeeves dashboards, every cardholder at Spare gets a live, 24/7, real-time overview of every expense as they happen, wherever they occur. 

The team at Spare has saved valuable time, resources, and funds lost to inefficient spending management. They can now focus on continuing to grow and positively impact people in cities around the world.


FAQ on business expense cards

What is a corporate expense card?

Business expense cards are debit, credit-backed or prepaid cards that you and your employees can use to make business purchases. You can usually issue a unique expense card to each employee. Corporate expense cards can also be independent of your business bank account and issued by a third-party card provider, such as Jeeves

What are the benefits of corporate expense cards?

Expense cards usually provide you with connected expense management software for greater spend flexibility, such as:

  • Better spending oversight with real-time data
  • Quicker setups – generate instant virtual cards for new hires or one-off purchases
  • Bigger reach as every employee can have their own card
  • Greater control, including spending limits, activation and elimination
  • Easier reconciliation with readily available and up-to-date data 

What’s the difference between corporate expense cards and company cards?

Company charge cards issued by financial institutions may be limited in numbers. You might share a handful of company cards with multiple team members.

Instead, corporate expense cards from independent providers enable more flexibility. You can issue a greater number of employee expense cards than with traditional credit or debit cards. Many expense cards are also prepaid, so you don’t have to worry about credit statements and interest rates.

Take control of your business spending with Jeeves’ corporate expense cards

Traditional company credit cards want you to spend recklessly. Here at Jeeves, we want you to save responsibly with our corporate expense cards. 

By combining flexible corporate expense cards and customisable spend management, we’ll help you reign in excess spending, improve your budgeting, grow sustainably, and thrive in even the most challenging times. 

Apply to Jeeves in less than 5 minutes, and you’ll receive a reply within 24 hours. This time tomorrow, you could be ready to optimise your business and scale to even greater heights.
