The need for finance leaders to simplify management of T&E has never been greater. Amid the proliferation of ride-hailing apps and alternatives to traditional hotels, finance teams have to account for a burgeoning variety of ways their fellow employees incur expenses related to T&E.
For their part, employees face the challenge of disentangling personal expenses from work-related expenses in connection with the apps they use while staying current on their companies' criteria for approving expenses. At the same time, finance teams need to remain vigilant in flagging or preventing errors and fraud no matter how employees record their expenses.
During this Webcast, we will discuss:
- The adaptations finance teams will need to make to keep track of expenses that employees incur using alternatives to traditional T&E,
- Best practices for updating a company's T&E guidelines to gain visibility into and oversight of new types of T&E expenses,
- What finance leaders need to know about recognizing and preventing fraud and errors in connection with T&E, and
- How finance leaders can improve their companies' effectiveness in communicating and maintaining employees' compliance with internal policies and regulatory requirements concerning T&E.
