August product update: Xero and Concur integrations, Apple Pay, and new page settings

brex product updates

We aim to be the best financial partner for growing, ambitious companies. In service of that goal, this month we launched a series of new features and integrations to help customers scale as their financial needs become increasingly complex. These launches will help customers save time, control spend, and most importantly focus on scaling their businesses. 

Integrations updates and launches

Our most notable integration updates included:

Xero integration upgrade

We’ve revamped our Xero integration so that all Brex Cash and Brex Card data automatically syncs with Xero via the standard bank feed. Our new integration, according to Xero VP, Andy Burner, now has “powerful benefits including real-time data flows, automatic receipt matching, bank feed automation, and an integrated view across payment types”, making it the most advanced in America. The integration takes only 3 minutes to connect and once done, saves customers hours at the end of every month.

Concur integration launch

Last week, we also launched a direct integration with Concur that automatically ports Brex Card transactions into the Concur Expense Management platform. With this new integration, all card transactions will automatically appear in the Concur dashboard within 24 hours of clearing. All Brex charges are automatically categorized as non-reimbursable, which means customers will never need to worry about user-tampering or accidental reimbursement for non-personal spend.

Pilot integration launch

We partnered with Pilot to help streamline Pilot’s transaction reconciliation workflows. Pilot offers a CFO-in-a-box solution, providing bookkeeping, tax preparation, and reporting services to small and growing businesses. By leveraging Brex’s Accounting API, Pilot can now reconcile Brex transactions 15% faster, with overall improved quality in Brex-to-Pilot data transfers. The end result is higher quality financials, and a better user experience.

Feature launches and updates

We also continue to invest in making your core Brex experience better. Some of the small but (we think) important improvements include: 

Expense policies

Customers can now take the hassle out of managing spend by creating expense policies directly within the Brex dashboard. Expense policies can be used to automatically remind employees when a receipt or memo hasn’t been submitted and to notify Admins of expensive transactions. Transactions requiring attention can be quickly reviewed and followed up on directly from the dashboard.

Apple Pay & Brex Mobile

Customers can now add their Brex Cards to Apple Wallets from directly within the Brex mobile app. Setting up Brex as an Apple Pay option is now a simple two-click experience.

Settings page improvements

We’ve redesigned the settings experience in the Brex dashboard to provide a more intuitive layout for customers. We’ve also added the ability for customers to change their billing addresses directly in the dashboard, which means no more calling into support every time you’d like to make updates to this detail. 

As always, thanks to all of our customers and partners who constantly push us to improve Brex’s products. Please keep all of the product feedback coming and stay tuned for next month’s product updates.
