We are thinking of asking all employees to submit their boarding pass as part of their expense reimbursement backup. Is this something that should be implemented as another control or is it too much to ask of our travelers? Thanks, Stewart

I was thinking what is better for profitability? Offering a discount i.e. price reduction or offering free goods [of discount value] instead. Your help is much appreciated. Kind regards Ankur

The news today is filled with opinion pieces on Yellen's speech (e.g. http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/26/news/economy/janet-yellen-federal-reserve-jackson-hole/). Opinion aside, what plans, if any is anyone else making? We're concerned about growth projections, but at...

Trying to decide what's best... Is software really necessary, like capshare.com? Is paid software worth it over free versions (like ReportAlly, captable.io) etc? Or just Excel? Thanks!
