Capillary Technologies had been using spreadsheets to track and report business expenses for the past
7 years. The biggest challenges posed by this setup were:
Manual Process: Employees were required to track expenses and then later fill in expense details manually. Further, the
admins needed to sift through multiple manual submissions to check for violations - leaving huge room
for fraud and human errors.
Low Visibility: The current process handicapped Capillary’s visibility into business spend - spanning 9 countries and
multiple business units, employees were claiming partial expenses and reporting only at end of month
because of the cumbersome process.
Paper Receipt Management: Hard copies were needed for audit, and managing them was cumbersome. Not only was this cost-intensive,
but lost/damaged receipts could impact the compliance and audit process, which was a huge vulnerability.
The spreadsheet process, for the reasons mentioned above, led to a very unhealthy overall employee
reimbursement period of about 45 days.
Addressing the change
Although Capillary had strong reasons to automate expense management, there were quite a few aspects
adding to the inertia, resisting this digital transformation
Migration efforts: Most automated softwares which could reduce manual e ort to near zero needed a significant amount of
onboarding and training during deployment.
Complex policies and hierarchies: Most solutions were unable to mimic the real-life approval hierarchies and violation checks for expense
reporting. The processes had to span a network of organizations across 9 countries.
An all-in-one solution: The new solution was expected not only to cover the expense management requirements, but also to
integrate seamlessly with payroll systems and other accounting workflows.
Fyle to the Rescue
Capillary zeroed upon Fyle to automate expense management, and the decision was driven majorly by the
Mobile Apps & Plugins: A mobile app to capture data from paper receipts and a chrome extension to capture data from
e-receipt power expense reporting at Capillary now.
Approval Workflows: Fyle enabled Capillary to setup custom workflows for approvals which led them to consolidate expenses
across multiple orgs based out of 9 different countries.
Policy Engine: Fyle’s policy engine supports custom policy setup and it flags unwarranted expenses without any human
involvement. Policies are now enforced in real-time when employees create expenses.
Receipt Management: Receipts uploaded by employees are stored in a digital format. Accountants get all receipts in one
place and maintaining a central database is easier.
Capillary shifted to Fyle entirely within a week - on-boarding all employees, training admins and
setting up complex company policies and workflows across all 9 countries.
Implementing Fyle gave immediate measurable benfits to Capillary
Increased, Real-time Visibility: A 2x increase in submission of receipts followed the automation of expense management. Owing to the
ease-of-use, employees were submitting more expenses as and when they happened.
100% Automated Compliance: Policy violations are now flagged and reported to the users in real-time. Users can also justify the
violations in the comments section.
3x Faster Reimbursements: Compounding impact of automatic compliance and approvals reduced Turnaround Time for Reimbursement to
15 days from the previous period of 45 days.
