SAN JOSE, Calif., July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Launched earlier this year, the AceBot.ai Slackbot has quickly become a favorite amongst teams that use Slack. But now, the popular tool that already counts IBM, PayPal, and Airbnb as customers has launched a new skill that further cements its status as the go-to Slackbot for employee productivity—expense reporting.
Even though a high percentage of employees incur reimbursable expenses every month, up until now there wasn't a convenient (read: conversational) way to report these expenses and get reimbursed. This is the issue that AceBot.ai solves with their new expenses skill, and does so without users ever having to leave Slack or use third party integrations.
The way it works is simple—just login to Slack, send "exp" as a direct message to @Ace, and then update your expenses with information such as amount spent, date of expense, type of expense incurred and a picture of the receipt/invoice.
The end result? A fast, easy, one stop shop for reporting reimbursable expenses and less time spent sorting through receipts and more time getting stuff done. All of this happens within Slack, and at the end of every month, you can easily export your expenses and drop them into your company's accounting system.
"We analyzed the space and realized there wasn't a comprehensive tool for reporting expenses in Slack without human intervention, so we set out to build something that we would want to use ourselves. We look forward to creating more tools that bring teams together and make it easier for them to check items off their to-do list and be more productive," comments AceBot.ai's Co-Founder and CTO, Ralph Vaz.
This latest skill joins other existing skills that cover a variety of aspects of workplace productivity. With AceBot.ai's Task Manager skill you can manage to-do's, the Polls skill lets you conduct surveys, and the Rate skill provides an easy way to get a pulse for company policies and more.
AceBot.ai is a Slackbot built for one common goal—to drive your team's productivity and make them more efficient. With skills that help teams report expenses, manage daily tasks, conduct polls, and rate policies, your team can get more done faster without having to leave Slack.
