One of the hardest things to control in an organization is the way it manages its expenses and payables. Whether it’s the challenging process of hunting down an employee for receipts or dealing with the process of scanning and routing a paper invoice, pre-accounting transactions are often slow, laborious and inaccurate, harming the morale of employees and sometimes your relationships with suppliers. Today, we would like to share with you some of the challenges that come from the manual processes in travel, expense, and invoice management and invite you to learn more about how you can streamline these processes.
Why Disparate and Manual Spend Management Hurts Your Company
For many organizations, one of the most “invisible” parts of accounting happens before the data even enters the books. Necessary tasks such as invoice management and expense management ensure that suppliers are paid, travelers are reimbursed, and flights are booked, with these expenses having a separate approval workflow before the data enters the books.
Unfortunately, this is one place where organizations have ignored automation, and manual processes reign. Whether it’s the box of receipts sitting on your travel manager’s desk or the stack of invoices that need to be scanned, approved, and paid, too many companies are drowning in paper and need to free themselves.
There are many ways that companies get out from under all of this paper, with many turning to SAP Concur, a leader in integrated spend management to automate the process and provide visibility needed to take control of spending. Better yet, an ever-increasing portion of these organizations is moving to integrate their spend management with their ERP solutions using an innovative connector from Wipfli LLP.
