What is Travel and Expense Management?
Travel and Expense Management is the process of regulating corporate travel and the expenses involved with tracking and reporting. It determines how much amount was spent by traveling employees and on what during a trip and then enforcing policies to control it.
Why Manage T&E Processes?
Travel and Expense Management is one such area in which companies should draw a slim line between effectively spending and reducing expenditures. A process that lacks visibility is susceptible to fraud, non-compliance, and inefficiencies. This becomes a hurdle for the company when auditing or optimizing T&E processes. There is no way to tell if employees are making out of policy expenditures. Expenses are likely unreported or get claimed multiple times due to inadequate monitoring and loose policies. The company is left with an inaccurate representation of overall expenses which leads to poor financial decisions costing the business. Managing T&E processes balances corporate travel needs with the budget set for it by the company.
This can be best achieved with comprehensive business travel and expense management solution like TrackEx. Let’s have a glance to understand how.
