Automated reconciliation


Corporate card transactions are pulled in from your nominated bank or financial institution and matched automatically with the correct receipt, so reconciliation becomes an always-on process that's all done in a couple of minutes. 

‘Always on’ expense management


Say goodbye to the monthly expense claim grind. Employees capture receipts via the mobile app, or email receipts directly to Zeno, add a description or cost centre if needed and submit for approval there and then. 


AI receipt 


From a captured image of a receipt, Zeno's optical character recognition extracts key data including date, vendor, amount and tax information and automatically creates and populates an expense item for the user.

Set up multiple levels of approvals, and route expense reports according to a variety of parameters. Business managers can approve items directly from an email notification, the desktop application, or via the mobile app. Escalation settings can be configured for delayed approvals.


Support corporate card, out of pocket spend, allowances, mileage and cash advance claims. Zeno Expense is flexible enough for enterprise-wide adoption, adding global offices with customised local tax law, or subsidiary companies with their own set of chartered accounts.


From the app, Zeno users can capture receipts and submit expenses, and managers can review expense claims on the go. No more hanging on to paper receipts, no more laborious expense claims, and users receive automatic status updates throughout the workflow.


Zeno’s powerful cloud processing of receipt data (OCR) for mobile and email receipts prevents data transposition errors and automated tax calculation removes the admin burden for users.


Policy controls are configurable down to the individual user level, and Zeno automatically detects out-of-policy expense items and flags them for easy identification by approvers. Duplicate expense identification flags expenses that are potentially duplicate, to catch mistakes or potential fraud before expense submission.


Zeno provides managers, approvers and finance teams with a full suite of analysis tools that help them to run their budgets more effectively, identify problem areas, and optimize expense policies.


Expense management

on the go

The Zeno app uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to process images of receipts. Expenses captured and submitted via the app are automatically matched with corporate card purchases, where a corresponding transaction exists.
