Alaan is evolving. Here's all you need to know.

Check out the latest updates and enhancements to Alaan’s spend management platform.

Alaan is a thorough spend management platform run on smart corporate cards. Alaan authorizes business owners and finance teams to have complete control and visibility over company expenditures, while allowing staff to spend as they need to get the job done. 

We are a driven group of enthusiasts dedicated to making finance easier for Middle Eastern enterprises. The first multi-currency spend management platform for the Middle East has been developed to track every business expense through corporate cards and automate invoice payments. 

We strive to get better every day to simplify tracking expenditures for you. Alaan is here with yet another product update to streamline your business expenses even more. 

Travelling? Alaan has you covered

Employees often have to take domestic and international trips for conferences, sales, and other business needs. Travelling naturally brings in extra expenditures that companies usually have to deal with separately.

With our latest update, you can now set card category controls specifically for travel. Getting cashbacks on foreign expenditures adds the cherry on top.

Team leaders can now review expenses

Alaan is always listening to your needs and suggestions. That’s how we got to know that not every single expense needss to be reviewed by everyone up the food chain. So now we have added the option of assigning teams and respective leaders for each expense. We understand the need of segregating and delegating tasks to concerned people, and assigning teams to your expenses will help you do just that. 

This can be done by going to Settings -> Teams and Assign Team Leaders. 

What’s next on our agenda? Multi-level approvals!

Watch out! The COPY button is here 

Don't we all just love Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V? Seems to make life better, doesn't it? We've translated the seamlessness in our new update by introducing the COPY button. 

Manually typing out card details for every online purchase is slow and time taking. Make it easier by using the COPY button!

If you are an administrator, you can now view all card details on the web application.
