Best Practices for Automating Expense Management

Date: Tuesday, December 4, 2018
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Many companies continue to rely on manual processes to implement their travel and entertainment (T&E) expense policies. In so doing, companies leave themselves open to errors, including noncompliance with the latest tax legislation, as well as intentional fraud.
From this webinar, you will learn which aspects of expense management make the most sense to automate, and how to improve your company's visibility into employees' expenses. We will discuss:
The top challenges finance leaders currently face with maintaining control over employees' expenses,
The CFO's role in streamlining expense management,
How to communicate and enforce your company's guidelines for reporting expenses, and
How to identify, as well as prevent, deliberate fraud and inadvertent errors by automating expense management.
