In 2015, three IITians from IIT Kharagpur started Smallcase with a vision to build a new generation of investments with technology as a backbone. The main objective of the founders was to build a trusted financial ecosystem with advisors, brokers, and other market participants for investors.
Over time, Smallcase has taken the Indian capital market by storm. Every day, Smallcase’s products are used by the most respected brands to provide a delightful customer experience.
Small companies to unicorns to multi-billion dollar companies: Expense management is a non-negotiable affair
Smallcase, the fastest growing investment platform, is conscious of the fact that there is a need for an extensive corporate payment solution. This is where Happay EPIC, India’s most favorable corporate payment solution for enterprises, put its expertise to the best use.
The Happay corporate payment solution defines a creative detailing and visualization of expenses, which allows the finance team to take control of their expenses in a diversified manner.
The bigger the fintech organization, the bigger the expenses to manage
With extensive corporate payments, saving funds is a big challenge. Smallcase realized that traditional banking cards were really expensive and did not offer any micro visibility into their spends. Smallcase needed to come up with a solution that would:
- Provide a one-stop platform for corporate payment solutions
- Save funds in FDs and other collaterals
- Provide versatile payment options
To address these concerns, Happay used its expertise and experience to curate innovative corporate payment solutions.
“The traditional system had these loopholes: no clarity on expenses, monthly billing cycle, no specific login for users, and no multi-user access. EPIC offers a user-friendly dashboard with multiple cards for one corporate account and multi-user access. Unlike banks, there is no collateral involved. EPIC has made it easy to make out the burns from the teams.”– Pratik Lohiya, AVP Finance, Smallcase
Unlike FD-backed bank credit cards, Happay EPIC provides collateral-free credit limits, which helps save 120% of the limits previously spent on FDs. The indefinite spending hours for managing miscellaneous spending and cost centre or P&L perspective can now be cut down to a few seconds using the dashboard provided by Happay EPIC cards.
The easy-to-manage and clean dashboard allows the admin to upload the excel dump transactions soon after exporting, which helps save 90% of the time spent on expense management. Unlike bank credit cards, EPIC cards have done away with the traditional and dated practice of waiting for OTPs to execute any transactions.
Why spend indefinite time on managing expenses, when you can simply manage them with EPIC?
The faster processing times of EPIC cards help save several hours spent on documentation in the bank. EPIC covers all domains in corporate spending, whether it’s digital ads, software tools, tech tools, or business spending. Smallcase enjoys the following benefits of EPIC cards:
