Merchant List == Accounting Vendor List
Right now, Expensify helps users make wild ass guesses for the Merchant Name and create more work for accountants. The software does not even present the vendor list via the connection to the accounting system. The end result is that 99% of expenses end up going to "Credit Card Misc." unless an accountant comes behind and codes all of them to an exact match in the accounting system. This wastes almost as much time as having users submit on paper.
The solution would be to lock Expensify's Merchant suggestion list to the exact list in the accounting package customers are using. If there is not a match, there should be a report for the accountant that allows them to see each report item whose vendor does not have a match and they can add it so it can be classified in the future.
