Book your expense with the Exact Expenses App

Written by Martin Ortgiess on . Posted in Exact Synergy

Easy does it! That was what we had in mind when making the Expenses App.

With the expenses App you can book file a new expense report by by making a picture of your receipt. It is as easy as that, it’s all it is.

Of course you also get an overview of your previous entered expenses, directly showing you whether it is approved or even better paid back to you.

With the Expenses App, the administrator is free to define the information you have to fill in at booking your Expenses. He needs to define which request type he wants to use at HRM/Settings/Expense claim and the App will pick it up from here.

The header of the expense entry is fixed, showing default information the user needs to fill in. Directly below this section, the account and project fields are shown (when available in the corresponding request type). All other fields that are set mandatory will be shown below.

For now, the Expenses App is only available on iPhone and iPad. We we are working hard on the Android version which should be available this summer.

This Expenses App works in combination with latest version of Synergy product update 252. 


Exact Hour Entry App – Watch the video of the prototype

Written by Martin Ortgiess on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

Exact has a major focus on delivering Mobile Apps to her customers. We just launched the CRM App 3 weeks ago and the new Field Service App is expected next week. And, even more Apps can be expected this half year.

Hour entry picture

One of the Apps we will start working on soon, is the Exact Hour Entry App. This App is aimed at consultants and allows them to easily book their hours. This can be any hour type. Some most used examples are:

  • Billable hours: The billable hours booked by the consultant can directly be billed to the customer, once approved by the project manager.
  • Non-billable hours: This can be internal projects, employee training, meetings etc.

To give full insight in what to expect from the Exact Hour Entry App, we made this video for you. This video is a prototype of the actual product. Note that the final product will slightly deviate from what you see in this video. The delivery date of the Hour Entry App is not yet set.

Enjoy and let me know what you think about it.
