Expense Reporting Strategies, Trends and Technologies for 2016

Original air date: April 7th, 2016

Speakers: Robert Neveu, President & Co-founder, Certify

Abstract

Accounting and finance professionals are increasingly pressured to lower company costs, often with reduced budgets that limit access to the latest technology resources. Now, more businesses are turning to their travel and entertainment (T&E) expense management programs for improved spending control and labor-saving efficiencies. A recent nationwide survey of more than 500 CFOs, controllers, and accountants reveals key strategies, trends, and technologies that U.S. companies are using in 2016 to measurably reduce costs, improve T&E policy compliance, and effectively do more with less.

Topics include an in depth review of:

  • Review of the annual T&E benchmark spending trends by expense category and company size
  • Identification of the often "hidden" costs associated with expense-report processing
  • Current expense-management strategies used by small, midsize and enterprise companies
  • Description of best practices and solutions to improve visibility, control, and accountability
  • Explanation of how automation delivers a full ROI for 92% of all companies in two years or less
