Budgets in Divvy are more than just wishful thinking— they’re a powerful tool to control spend. Set spend limits in Divvy which are directly tied to employee cards. That’s it. No nagging or pleading involved.
Full visibility of spend, all in one place.
Now you can instantly see where every penny is in your organization. Rather than building your budgeting strategy using outdated numbers in a static spreadsheet, Divvy’s budgeting software syncs automatically with employee credit cards. Stop overspending and get real-time visibility into spend by department, team, project, or individual budget.
Send and request funds in seconds.
We’ve made it easy to send or request funds. Once sent, those funds are instantly available on your Divvy card. With our intuitive web and mobile apps, you are in complete control.
“The visibility into spend before Divvy would be the day we received a receipt from a credit card. Now that we know how much we’re giving each employee to spend we’re able to forecast budgets months in advance.”

Commonly asked budgeting questions
There are four main types of budgeting: incremental, zero-based, activity-based, and value proposition. Incremental budgeting adjusts existing budgets by increments each year, according to growth or loss. Zero-based budgeting starts every budget at zero so that expenditures are justified first, not after. Activity-based budgeting first looks at a desired outcome, then works backward to determine how to fund the efforts to arrive at that outcome. Finally, value proposition budgeting looks at every budget and expense through the lens of the value it brings to the company.
Budgeting is important for controlling the direction of your company. Budgeting is a roadmap to where you want to go. At Divvy we believe in proactive spending control, so that your budgets send money exactly where it’s supposed to go to meet your goals.
Setting a budget for your business starts with determining exactly where money is coming in and flowing out (revenue and costs). Using your existing data, as well as industry standards, you can inform business decisions and forecast future budgets that align with your goals.
A good budgeting platform should show your financials at a glance and allow for easy, instantaneous updating. This software will track where numbers have been in the past as well as help you predict where you’re headed. The best budgeting tool will combine real-time data with flexible budget controls.
A personal budget focuses on the financial decisions of one (or just a few) people, while a business budget is impacted by a whole company and its customers. A business budget is much more complicated, and requires greater visibility and flexibility.
Managing business expenses requires meticulous tracking and controls. Old financial processes depend on physical expense reports to see where each employee has spent company money; this framework leaves your company with data that is days—if not months—behind. Expense management software that instantly syncs with budgets gives you real-time visibility into financial data and lets you control employee spend, so you never go over budget again.
By finding the right budgeting system, you can prevent employees from overspending—before it happens. Imagine what could be possible if you were able to create and enforce budgets, see spend in real time, and make strategic decisions based on the right data.
