Why doesn't Expensify export merchants as vendors when exporting to Intacct or NetSuite?
We've seen a lot of requests for vendor mapping across all of our integrations and have some mapping available for QuickBooks Online and Xero, however, we don't offer this for non-reimbursable credit card expenses for Intacct and NetSuite.
The reason behind this is actually more of a question for our users.
What is the vendor information used for?
The responses we've received have been about budgeting and tracking how much is spent on fuel vs. meals. Most accounting professionals that we've discussed this with simply use their available categories for reporting their employees spending.
As long as your chart of accounts/expense categories are broken down properly, this information is easy to gather and generate without the need to see exactly how much was spent at one gas station as opposed to another.
If there is a need to see how much was spent at a specific vendor like amazon, you can create an expense category to specifically track those purchases.
We'd love to know if we are missing any known use cases so please comment below!
