Travel & Expense Trends for 2015: How Does Your Businesses Expense Management Process Stack Up?

Original air date: January 22nd, 2015

Speaker: Bob Neveu, President at Certify

Abstract

Travel and entertainment—second only to payroll as the largest business expense—is 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 Travel and Entertainment spend, and spend within key categories, compare with other companies? How are companies leveraging automation to better understand and control how employees are spending the company dime? Unfortunately, benchmarks for overall T&E spend and key T&E spend within each categories are all but impossible to find.

The good news is that Robert Neveu President & Co-founder, Certify will join us to reveal the latest buying trends in business travel based on research from Certify's SpendSmart Report, based on receipts and expenses data from over six million transactions and transaction-based data from Seamless. Among the key survey results Robert will discuss are:

  • Learn the business travel spend trends of 2014 and what to expect in 2015
  • Identify ways to improve management of your company’s T&E spend in 2015
  • Benchmark key categories of T&E to compare your company's overall spend with other organizations
  • Recognize current and emerging trends in T&E automation
