Experience using Expensify, Expensecloud, Replicon, Concur or TimeSmart?

expensfiy vs concurWe are 10 person company, but situated across 3 states. I am looking for an online solution so that employees can submit PTO requests, timesheets (less important since only need for a few consultants) and expense reports to supervisors. We need the expense tracking to integrate into Quickbooks.

I am considering the single solution offered by Replicon (which has a single interface for all three modules) or using a combination of an expense solution (like Expensify, Expensecloud, Concur, etc.) and TimeSmart.  I would greatly appreciate any experience you would be willing to share with any of these services. 

Thank you!

Expensify I've tried; it works.
Concur I've heard good things.
I didn't see a need for an integrated solution since I wasn't planning on paying for integration into my GL...however...
...the next time I do this I will be considering a more integrated solution as I would prefer to save my approving-execs the time and complexity of multiple platforms.

*Note I used ClickTime instead of TimeSmart; my peers who have used the latter have said good stuff about it.

*Note further that generally my timesheet people and expense report people were separate, so this influenced my decision.

We use Concur and it's fantastic but probably overkill for 10 employees since it doesn't do timesheets. I would recommend the single interface option since you probably don't have any complicated customizations.

We have 75 employees and use Concur for travel booking, expense report filing and vendor invoice routing. It was relatively easy to implement and reasonably priced.

SpringAhead does both time and expense reporting and integrates with QB.

Just an update - we went with Concur for expenses and really like it so far. We are still looking for a timesheet/PTO request solution (or will wait until an integrated solution comes along).

In the process of trying to setup Expensify. Most frustrating experience ever. No support, no user guides, just trial and error and poorly produced 2 minute videos that you have to search to find. I just called Concur!
