The Pleo Digest - October 2021

Our mission is to be the go-to spending solution for forward-thinking teams everywhere. 

So, how do we make that happen? Well, we take bold steps – like our very first event. 

And it’s going to be a big one.

Pleo goes Forward

Got any plans for December 9th, 2021? There’s still plenty of time to rearrange if you do.

Because we’re so proud to announce Forward: A free, one-day digital summit for forward-thinkers at work. 

Some top speakers have been confirmed already from leading brands like Netflix, Spotify and Airbnb. Kim Scott, the author of Radical Candor, is also going to be there.

The speakers will cover topics ranging from mental health and resilience to international hiring, with discussions on inclusion, sustainability and founder experiences also planned. 

So, with Forward, we’re building an event that can inspire – and offer plenty of practical takeaways too.

Book your spot now.

The Pleo Bills difference

Invoice management guide

For the past few months, our UK customers have been able to pay invoices through Pleo using our Bills feature.

Since those companies have been using Bills for a while, we wondered: How much time is it saving them? So, we asked – and then crunched the numbers based on what they told us.

Before Pleo Bills, it took our customers around 5 minutes and 16 seconds in total to process an invoice from start to finish. With Pleo Bills, these businesses spend approximately 30 seconds on each bill.

Pleo Bills cuts the time spent processing the average invoice from more than 5 minutes to less than 30 seconds.

If you can think of a more useful way to spend 5 minutes than processing an invoice, you can find out more about how Bills can help.

(​​It also means that if you add up all the invoices we've helped process in the first few months, we've saved customers more than 30,000 hours on invoicing. Our pleasure folks, honestly!)

Never run out of money again

Even the most conscientious admin can find it tricky to manually take care of Pleo top-ups.

That’s why we’re pretty sure our customers in Ireland are going to be over the moon to hear about our new auto top-up feature.

Now, once your team’s Pleo balance hits a certain threshold, we can automatically sort out the transfer of funds for you. Here's how.

And if that’s not enough Pleo goodness in your life...
