Bento For Business

Bento Vs Airbase

For small and medium businesses, Bento’s intuitive platform can’t be beat

What's the Difference?

While both Bento for Business and Airbase are popular expense management tools, Bento stands out for its ease of use and highly personalized features that allow businesses big and small to take control of their finances and business spending. 

Airbase and Bento for Business both offer features such as accounting integration with QuickBooks, Xero, and other accounting softwares but only Bento offers company debit cards with granular spend controls. With our Spend Limit and Fixed Value cards, Bento gives you control for every situation. 

With Bento for Business you can say goodbye to time consuming reimbursements — a feature that Airbase still utilizes — and say hello to set spend limits that allow employees, contractors, and volunteers to perform their work duties without worrying about paying out of pocket. 

Plus, you can feel secure by knowing that card administrators have the power to remotely turn off a card if it is lost or stolen. Bento for Business offers peace of mind and simplicity that outpaces other spend management tools. 

As a business owner, you wear many hats and it can be hard for you to keep track of your companies’ business expenses all the time. It’s much easier and more efficient to have a tracking and management system in place that helps you stay within your budget so that you can focus your attention on running your business.
