Spend Management Automation Beyond No Other

Concur Automated Business Travel and Expense Management

"In February 2014, Forrester Consulting evaluated the state of T&E spend management in a study commissioned by Concur Technologies. In a survey of 348 financial decision makers around the world, Forrester found that T&E is the second most difficult item for companies to control. Most firms wait for their employees to manually enter their T&E data after the expenditure is already made so that the resulting T&E reporting process focuses on retrospective compliance and budgeting. Analysis of T&E trends and potential cost optimization, if done at all, is done primarily via spreadsheets."

How Do You Control Spend and Maximize Profitability?

Keeping track of expense, travel and invoice spend can be difficult. In today’s modern workforce, the way in which your organization’s cash flow is controlled has shifted. Emerging technologies and new payment channels have allowed employees to take charge of how, when and on what your organization’s budget is being spent.

Processing expense reports is not anyone’s ideal way to spend the day – especially if your organization still uses a manual solution. Are employees tracking down paper receipts or manually entering data into spreadsheets? Tasks like these are repetitive and cumbersome.

When it comes to investing in technology to automate your expense, travel and invoice processes– or, better still, to look at seamlessly connecting all three – it is natural to ask: Why? What is the benefit?

Here are four (4) risks that can be minimized by connecting and automating your spend management processes:

  1. Limited Visibility and Uncontrollable Costs Are you confident that you have full visibility over all the expenses being submitted, trips being planned and invoices being processed by your employees?
  2. Falling Foul of Compliance or Regulatory Requirements Is your business fully compliant with rapidly changing legal and regulatory measures? And are you confident you have everything in place to effectively manage the risks of fraud and financial crime?
  3. Failing in Your Duty to Care for Your Employees Can you instantly locate, communicate with and support your employees travelling on business anywhere, at any time? Especially when they’ve asked for immediate advice?
  4. Missing the Strategic View and Losing Your Competitive Edge Do you have the tools, reporting and insights you need to help your organization retain its competitive edge – rather than having to play a reactive, fire-fighting role?

Imagine managing all your Finance processes in the cloud while strengthening your local compliance. Leverage your financial data to create usable business insights for the business.
How can you go from reactively managing your employee-initiated expenses to proactively saving your organization’s money?


Employee frustration and lengthy reimbursement times are two of the top issues with many organization’s expense reporting systems. Can you relate?

You shouldn’t have to.
