3.21 Certify Insights for Improving Travel and Expense Management_V2.png

Webcast Summary

As companies look for ways to maximize the return on their investments in corporate travel, CFOs are turning to a wide range of options to automate expense management. Despite their efforts, they have some challenges ahead, as 46 percent of respondents to a recent survey of finance professionals indicate their organizations still rely on manual processes to manage expenses.

This Webcast will explore the latest trends in, and provide a look into the future of, managing T&E expenses. We will also highlight best practices that enable finance teams to:

  • Assess their current expense management processes to identify areas for improvement;
  • Collaborate with colleagues, including those outside finance, to streamline the submission and review of employees' expenses;
  • Refine, and overcome barriers to introducing changes to, T&E policies; and
  • Employ automation to ensure employees comply with external regulations, as well as their employers' policies, when reporting expenses.
