The team at Baltic Assist have been using Pleo since 2018. Ever since then, they’ve used Pleo for daily business purchases, and we’ve become their go-to tool when it comes to handling their teams’ reimbursements.
For this Pleo Partner Hero case, we talked to Augustas Lebedevas, one of the finance team leads at Baltic Assist, to learn more about the challenges faced by him and how Pleo has helped solve them.
Let's jump in!
What challenges were you dealing with before Pleo?
Before Pleo, reimbursements to employees were complicated.
The process usually involved a lot of lost receipts and we only had bank confirmations as legal documents confirming the transactions happened. Because of this, we had a loss of VAT in some cases which cost money to the company, without Pleo, more documents would definitely be lost.
Also when we talk about a few hundred transactions, that turns into a pretty big workload to complete manually. Pleo solved this manual work problem with automation and reduced hours of workload for our accountants.
Because of the time freed up thanks to Pleo, we can make double checks on other important accounting data. In general, it has reduced the manual work required to finish daily bookkeeping so clients are very happy that their costs were reduced and accountants are happy that most of the documents are stored in one place."
What impact has the results from working with us had on your clients?
For us, it’s all about reducing our workload. Today, clients are looking for the most innovative and cost-effective ways of doing accounting and bookkeeping."
Using Pleo helps us save money as our accountants’ workloads are reduced and we don’t need to search high and low for every document. Having documents attached to each transaction makes life easier.
