Recorded Webinar

Expense Management: Best Practices and Benchmarking for 2015

Original air date: February 25th, 2015

Speakers: Robert Neveu, President of Certify & Jamie Shada, Accounting Operations Analyst, Garmin


Travel and Entertainment (T&E) expenses—second only to payroll as the largest business expense—are becoming increasingly more difficult to control as companies expand across borders and grow through acquisitions. Therefore, effective budgeting, planning, and management of T&E expenses is critical for companies of all sizes in 2015 and beyond.

How does your company’s overall T&E spending, as well as spending within key categories, compare with other companies? How are companies leveraging automation to better understand and control how employees are spending the company dime? Join us for an hour-long discussion about the best practices to reduce T&E spending and simplify expense management processes in 2015.

Topics include an in depth review of:

  • Understand current and emerging technologies surrounding T&E management
  • Explain how companies are utilizing expense report software to drive up policy compliance rates and simplify processes for employees and managers
  • Apply the best practices of T&E automation with Certify’s platform
