Say goodbye to expense reports.

Pleo is a company payment card solution that automates expense reports and simplifies company spending.


Organisational leadership is changing from centralised to distributed. Where yesterday the focus was on control, today the focus is on empowerment.

The same is happening with business spending. Gone are the days of centralised purchasing. Today, the best organisations empower their employees to take spending decisions. As the saying goes: the most efficient process is “just buy it yourself”.

Pleo was started to help companies accelerate this transformation by enabling them to implement smooth, distributed spending.

With Pleo, organisations of all sizes and from all industries can now empower their staff while staying in control.
