With a significant percent of a company's budget being spent on Travel and Entertainment (T&E) expenses, it is surprising to see 53% of companies are still manually managing (pen & paper, Excel, spreadsheets) these costs. Over the next 18 months, 81% of all organizations have indicated they will be moving onto a cloud-based expense system.
