ExpenseBay Wins Showoff Competition at Twiistup 6

Employee Expense Automation Software Picked Best of Show at LA's Largest Start-Up Showcase

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/03/09 -- Twiistup, Southern California's signature event connecting professionals from the worlds of technology, media and entertainment, today announced ExpenseBay has won the 2009 Showoff competition. More than 100 companies applied for the Showoff selection, representing a broad range of sectors and industries.

Twelve of the most promising Internet start-up companies demonstrated their products and services during the conference. The Twiistup judges announced the winner of the coveted Twiistup honor was ExpenseBay at the close of Friday's session.

"With ExpenseBay, our goal remains to help business travelers rid themselves of the time-consuming chore of entering expenses by utilizing today's technology to save time and increase efficiency," said Eric Sikola, CEO of ExpenseBay. "We are very excited to have been a part of Twiistup 6 and our distinction as this year's Showoff reinforces the need for ExpenseBay's technology."

ExpenseBay is a secure and easy to use SaaS solution that automatically generates an employee's expense report. The Santa Monica-based company was founded to alleviate the manual entry business travelers face weekly, leading to enormous timesaving and better organization of their expenses. Users can export any auto-generated expense report into an employee mandated company spreadsheet or Enterprise SaaS Expense Management system. ExpenseBay's solution allows employees to have up-to-date visibility as to how much their company owes them and what transactions are awaiting submission, as well as a historical view of their expense reports. By utilizing a camera phone, users can immediately add receipt images into ExpenseBay along with creating cash transactions.

"This year's Twiistup introduced a slew of start-up companies and new media personalities with the added daytime panels, as well as our traditional nighttime event," said Francisco Dao, producer of Twiistup. "People come to Twiistup to discover the latest and most innovative companies in Southern California and beyond, as well as to interact with the thriving technology and new media crowd. We are excited and pleased with ExpenseBay for their impact on our community and wish them the best in the future."

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.
