Summary

Streamlining spend management for a leading software company developing augmented reality games.

Challenge

The company lacked a payment solution fit for its growing team. Sharing one card across the company was hard to track and led to fraud. To mitigate this exposure risk, their accounting operations lead began making all purchases herself. She was responding to requests across time zones and on weekends to keep business moving. “I was basically a 24-hour payment service,” she said.

Solution

Onboarding with Extend ended accountant’s overtime. Instead of asking her to make a purchase, employees now request a virtual card. “All I have to do is push a button to approve it,” she shared. For software subscriptions, she prefers creating auto-refill cards to manage credit limit exposure.

Outcome

Streamlined payment process. Requesting and creating virtual cards in the app is easy and supports an organized spend tracking system for smooth reconciliation.

Secure online payments. Using unique virtual cards for online purchases keeps the primary card number secure, reducing the hassle of fraud.

Smarter subscription management. Creating one auto-refill card per subscription limits exposure to only the payment due each month, instead of the full year’s cost.

Countless administrative hours saved. By no longer manually managing purchases on one credit card, accounting teams have time to focus on more important tasks.

"For every single online purchase, we pay with a virtual card. They’re easy to create and it mitigates our risk.”

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
