What is a Custom Expense export?

The custom export provides an output report file in a format that your accounting or ERP system expects. Instead of the standard accounting file or general XML file, this type of export is completed customized to your needs.

This module can only be activated when you have purchased Custom Export. Please check with your account executive or success manager for more information.

What can be included in this file?

This type of report can only be used for booking expenses in the ERP or accounting tool.

Custom export files are especially helpful for clients that would like to build a quick integration between Rydoo and their accounting tool. Less effort and resources needed to allocate to integrations.


For large global organizations, we often see multiple local accounting tools or payroll provides. A custom export can help solve the integration gap for those branches when resources are scarce.
