Austin-based Expense Software Offers Aid to Local Governments Across Texas

Webexpenses donates software to help Texas’ state's economic recovery after pandemic 

 

Austin, TX (April 9, 2020) - Austin-based SaaS company, Webexpenses, is donating its expense management software to Texas state and local governments. The comped system is being provided to assist the state and its municipalities in recouping costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This provision is a direct response to Texas Governor, Greg Abbott’s, announcement during his April 8 press conference regarding COVID-19. 

Abbott advised, “The federal government has provided an unprecedented amount of financial resources for governments at all levels to be able to fully and robustly respond to COVID-19. It is essential that, as you encounter expenses, that you retain receipts for those expenses to ensure that your jurisdiction is going to able to be reimbursed as fully as possible.”

Webexpenses provides paperless receipt capture and automated expense reporting; users can take a picture of their receipts and submit expense reports from their phones. Policies are built-in to the system and can be customized to meet the standards set by the Federal government for COVID-19 reimbursements. The system also eliminates the need for in-person communications while counties remain on lockdown.

“As we now know, what we do in the present can deeply affect our future. And while we’re still in the middle of this pandemic, there is a brighter future ahead of us. We want to do what we can to help our home state prepare for that future.” said Ryan Corlett, Webexpenses Regional Director of North America. “Our software will enable state and local governments to establish a foundation for a quick economic recovery - without incurring any additional costs for a system. While easing the strain on our government employees, so they can focus on more pressing tasks.”
