BureauOne was using a corporate credit card from a major bank, but it didn’t have the expense management features or credit limit they needed. Cofounder and President Madhusudan Kagwad began looking for a new card, and wanted a broad range of features. It seemed impossible to find all of those features in one card. But then he found Brex.

“We wanted a card that was tailored to companies like ours, easy to set up, included receipt management, integrated with our ERP, and had payment terms that worked for us.” — Madhusudan Kagwad, Cofounder and President

Once the team at BureauOne decided to switch to Brex, the process was very quick. They applied, got cards right away, and immediately started issuing cards to the founders and finance team.

BureauOne found Brex’s receipt capture one of the most helpful features for their company. Cardholders can simply text a picture of a receipt, or upload it to the mobile app, and Brex will automatically match it to the corresponding expense. For Kagwad, it’s great to see how the new card was saving time across the board.

“Brex makes everyone’s life easier. Employees love the way Brex tracks expenses and our accounting team loves how simple it is to close the books every month.”

Now that BureauOne is using Brex, they have leveled up their credit card game and accelerated growth. Kagwad doesn’t think this type of growth would have been possible without Brex.

“With Brex, our higher credit limit gives us much easier access to capital, which means we can take advantage of more opportunities to grow our business and stay competitive.”
