Current Expense Management Trends and T&E Spending Benchmarks

Original air date: April 26, 2017

Speaker: Mark Brousseau, Editor of Special Projects, IOFM and Jennifer Steinke, Manager, Corporate Travel & Expense, Dycom Industries, Inc.


Faced with rising costs and added responsibility for the bottom line, accounting professionals today are increasingly turning to software automation to streamline processes and better control spending across a number of important functions. Chief among these are travel and entertainment (T&E) expense reporting and reimbursement. Now, a new survey of more than 600 CFOs, controllers, and accounting professionals identifies the top T&E trends and approaches to expense management for today’s small, mid-sized, and enterprise businesses. Mark Brousseau, of Brousseau & Asociates, and Jennifer Steinke, of Dycom Industries, Inc., will discuss what companies are doing to overcome their T&E expense challenges, as well as how you can leverage findings from the survey to improve expense reporting at your company.

Learning objectives include:

  • Describe the most common expense technologies and system features used today.
  • Explain why “meals” is the leading T&E expense spending category and other benchmarked costs.
  • Recognize challenges and opportunities that drive companies to adopt T&E automation.
  • Explain methods used to improve employee compliance with travel policy.
