In today’s highly competitive environment, enterprises are looking for significant data and transparencies in their business spend and prefer solutions offering deep rooted insights into their expenditure. The motto is not just to enhance the existing process but also to leverage analytical capabilities and visibility that help businesses drive efficiency, forecast and plan better for corporate finances. Enterprises are increasingly seeking to institute financial discipline within their organization to ensure effective expense management solutions that streamline purchasing, and simplify reporting and reconciliation processes for business related expenses.

Bangalore-based Happay was incepted with a vision to render Enterprises and SMEs real-time visibility and control of all business expenses through one single platform and help them manage expenses digitally and efficiently. The company deeply understands the needs of Indian businesses, and further addresses them through its all-in-one Business Expense Management Software. “During our interactions with enterprise clients, we noticed that enterprises now have dedicated budgets for expense management solutions and are actively evaluating such softwares as part of business process management (BPM) initiatives,” avers VarunRathi, Co-Founder & COO, Happay.

A full stack business expense management solution is very difficult to pull off,but Happay has built and scaled it successfully. The company had launched its digital solution at a time (early 2015) when Indian businesses were taking baby step towards digital and cashless payments. Being a first mover in the category, the company was able to create the initial awareness and education in the market and set the foundation for expense management softwares for Indian companies. The software helps companies to manage any and all business expenses, including Travel & Expense (travel requisitions, online ticketing, policies, and workflows), Petty Cash (card driven solutions for distributed office locations/branches/stores), Employee Reimbursements (digital processing of out-of-
pocket employee expense claims), Employee Flexible Benefits (multi-wallet linked digital solution to manage all types of benefits including meal, medical, fuel, mobile bill reimbursements) and Allowances &Accounts Payables (digital invoice management and processing of vendor payments,in real-time, in one place).

The flexible and modular platform enables Happay to deviate from the ‘one-size-fits-all’ SaaS solutions to cloud-based solutions that integrate with a corporate card to fit like a glove
