As the world becomes more connected due to globalization, business travel is inevitable. Your company may need to spend money on a variety of travel expenses, such as international trade expos, client meetings, team-building trips, etc.
Normally, when a trip is planned, three things happen.
- A travel request is raised and approved.
- The person goes on the trip, spends money, and makes a note of it.
- The person returns, prepares a detailed report of expenses, and presents it for reimbursement.
This may sound simple, but the process of tracking and reimbursing business spend is something that takes up a lot of time for your company.
Firstly, it kills the productivity of the employee who must fish around for old receipts and figure how much the company owes him. Next, it opens the possibility of fraud or a lack of compliance with company policy. This leads to the management & accounts team wasting hours making sure that every penny of the business expense is justified.
Want to avoid all this?
This is where an expense management solution comes in.
With the right software, you can automate the entire expense reporting, tracking, and reimbursement process. This comes with substantial benefits.
