Wearer of Many Hats
Because Bento allows us to set rules by employee, it will enable us to have better control over employee spending and make it easier to manage our budget as we grow our company.

We have drivers throughout the country, most of whom we never meet in person, so handing out company credit cards to them is not an option. Plus, lost receipts and an inability to control how company money was being spent was becoming an issue. Bento can solve these issues for us.

Reporting and expense management are extremely important to our success. Bento gives our employees the ability to buy what they need to buy in order to get their jobs done. At the same time, as a company owner, I now have the control I want, which gives me the freedom to run Staffly without the worry and headaches that come with making sure we have enough gift cards, or that receipts are being submitted properly.
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.
We are saving almost $15,000 a month by switching from AmEx to Bento.
With 150 field employees using Bento, I have eliminated 3+ hours/week of expense reporting and I estimate we have saved $10,000 in the first month.
We wanted a solution for our construction crew when they were out of town on projects. These cards worked great! They all used the mobile app to upload receipts as they made purchases, so there was no ‘nagging or chasing’ that needed to be done by the accounting department. And these funds are separate so in the event, someone lost a card, there would be minimal damage to the company’s finances.
We’ve been using the Bento service for about 2 years now, and I didn’t expect it to be quite such a good experience when we signed up. We have 4-5 employees working in the bay area of California, it helps out on many levels. Easy to track and see purchases online and if you’re super tight on cash you can control the individual types of purchases. It’s been a great experience and has improved cash flow over the last couple years. I’ve recommended it to several other business owners.
Bento cards have simplified our business spending immensely. We can now offer company credit cards to our employees as one of their benefits. Spending limits allow for control of funds and restriction of categories. The customer service can’t be beat!
Excellent Business Tool and Customer Service! This has been a great tool for our small business. I am able to use an app on my phone which keeps me updated, as well as, viewing all the transactions from employees online. This is user-friendly and easy to maintain and understand. The customer service is excellent, they take the time to address my concerns and find solutions! I recommend this company to anyone needing these services!
This has been a great option to allow some of our employees to have access to a credit card, but with control over the spending. It’s easy to use, & a great value for the money. Bento for Business has been a helpful tool for this small business.
Coming up on a year of using Bento. still one of the best decisions we have ever made to control spending, reduce paperwork processing time, and manage our books. Thanks!!
We are a small construction company who specializes in maintenance of apartment buildings. Our crew used to buy materials everyday for jobs and come into office for reimbursement checks every couple days. Now they are not loosing time in the field and book keeper isn’t having to stop in the middle of something to review receipts and cut a check.
Bento has saved our organization countless hours of reconciling receipts and tracking employee spending. Our employees love it because they don’t have to spend their money and wait for reimbursement and the card and smartphone app are easy to use. Any time we’ve had questions or issues they’re resolved in minutes. The online chat function for support is GREAT!

Our company has been transformed with these new Bento cards. We no longer have to worry about cash being unaccounted for. The best part is that our crew members can take pictures of their receipts and upload them into their Bento app on the spot! Every penny is accounted for and our year end accounting is so much easier!
I love it!! In my logistics business it was hard to keep track of what my drivers needed on the road and getting ready for work. But with Bento they all have a card that they are able to use for expenses and I am able to keep track of everything now. Best investment I have made starting my business.
This is a great solution to avoid paying out petty cash. It makes month end reconciliations so much easier. The employees find the solution easier than submitting expense reports for reimbursement. They turn in their receipts regularly and we balance to the Bento online account. Great solution for small to medium businesses.
The support staff was very helpful in rush shipping our first round of cards so that we had them when we needed them and she kindly extended our free trial period. The website and app are very easy to use. I am able to manage spending limits on each card and restrict the purchase of alcohol; any changes I make are effective immediately. I am continuously pleased with Bento.
If you are a small business owner who likes to follow the same philosophy of “less debt” in business as you do in your personal life, Bento is a fantastic tool to help you stick to a budget! Thanks, Bento! You’re a remarkable tool for my business!
We wanted an easy way to track gas on a small fleet plus give the ability for oil changes or pick up material if needed. With out giving them an actual credit card with unlimited spending. This gives us the ability to limit when and what they can buy. Plus each month the report can be printed and costs assigned to each job.
Sword of the
Having the Bento Card has helped us streamline our processes and made it easier for members in different departments make their purchases without delay. We always have a record of charges, even when a receipt is lost…having this card is a win win!
Before we found Bento, the whole “petty cash” for over 50 employees who travel extensively was the bane of my existence! Now, with Bento, everything is so easy. The customer service has been extraordinary, truthfully. I have always gotten an actual person any time I’ve called, and 100% follow up with every question I’ve had.
As a re-habber, my crew uses Bento daily for permits, gas and unexpected purchases. It saves me time because I don’t have to go to my crew to deliver funds or chase receipts. The dashboard is user friendly and the controls are super easy. I can shutoff expenses, turn cards off and even select on which days the cards work.
Bento has provided our company with an easier way of providing petty cash to our employees. They have created an easier way to track spending, reload our managers with funds upon their needs and their online and phone apps are incredibly easy to use!
Easy with Bento. Super easy to manage. Very pleased with my service as well.
Bento is great product for company employee cost management. I would highly recommend this card for small business owners.
Amazing I keep track of all mine and employee expenses!!
These cards have worked great for our employees. Easy to track their purchases and keep track of spending.
User friendly, easy to use, provides a great and quick overview of what’s going on!
They do an outstanding job. They are always there for answers. I have told all of my business friends about you all.
I have been very impressed with my “Bento for Business” card and the many features that I am able to control via the web app. The ability to track my expenses as well as those of my additional card holders allows for precise accountability. I especially like that I can set spending limits and restrictions on the type of products that can be purchased with the individual card holders.
We have used Bento for our small business for a few years now and we are very pleased. It is easy to use and it integrates with our time tracking software. The best part is that Bento files all our IRS forms on our behalf and prepares and distributes W-2s for our employees in a very timely manner. In addition, we get reminders of employee birthdays and work anniversaries, which is an added bonus. We find it excellent for the price and highly recommend Bento.
I LOVE that I can see in real time what they are spending and where. I’ve been able to place limits, and then modify as needed. Recently, a tech went over his limit – I logged on from my phone and was able to adjust his limit so he could immediately finish his transaction. I HIGHLY recommend Bento to any business owner, but especially small/medium businesses where we need control, yet we allow autonomy from our employees. Switch to Bento!!
I was looking for a way to get my business out of the never-ending cycle of credit card debt and Bento made it possible! It helps me be more accountable and present in the purchasing decision and for anyone else who is wanting a way to easily and effectively manage their money without getting into debt, Bento is it. I can’t praise them high enough. I highly recommend them!
