Ways to Use Bento for Remote Workforce
Use Virtual Cards
You can create Bento virtual cards for your employees to use online right away—perfect for work-from-home teams that still need to buy on the company’s behalf or get lunch delivered.
Bento virtual cards come with the same powerful card controls available on your physical cards, and all purchases can be tracked and reported in real time on Bento.
Send Paperless Payments
Using cash or checks is not only inconvenient, but can be dangerous for public health right now.
Need to pay someone? Use Bento Pay™ to send them a digital payment via email! The payee can securely retrieve the payment based on their preference, and they don’t even need to be a Bento user.
Bento Pay™ is available in every Bento account. Learn more here.
Stay on Top of Spending
Again, there’s no need to deal with paper right now. Have your employees upload their receipts and notes via the Bento app for you to view from home.
Cash might be tight right now. We recommend that you use Bento’s easy transaction filters to discover any larger overhead or recurring subscriptions that you can put on hold for the time being.
