Whether you are looking for an alternative to a corporate card, secured credit card, or reloadable debit card, Bento is the answer. Bento lets businesses manage their employee spending without compromising security, ease of use, or affordability. Business credit cards simply can’t compete.

"As a growing business, we will be juggling contractors, employees, and multiple jobs, making it really hard to stay on top of who needs money, who's spending it, and whether or not we're staying on budget. Bento makes this easy by letting me give each person their own card, set limits, and track all expenses in one place, without wasting hours sorting receipts."Jesse Allen, OwnerJT Complete
