Clubhouse’s expense management process wasn’t scaling with the company.
Clubhouse’s impressive growth and success as a project management platform meant that more people needed to spend on the company’s behalf, significantly increasing the complexity of managing expenses and distributing spend across departments. The company’s outdated expense management tools simply couldn’t keep up, with employees wasting hours every month chasing receipts and filing reports.
“There wasn’t really any visibility on what employees were spending and how much"
Complicating matters further, expense reports were often months late, inaccurate, and missing receipts and proper approval. “There wasn’t really any visibility on what employees were spending and how much,” says Clubhouse senior accountant Shafak Ilyas. “So, there was no control over when the sync would occur.”
