Three reasons to ditch traditional expense reports (and a better alternative)
Expense reports have long been a staple of corporate financial management, but their drawbacks are increasingly hard to ignore. Here are three reasons why your company should consider ditching them:
Time-consuming: Preparing and reviewing expense reports is a time-intensive process. Employees spend valuable hours documenting expenses and managers must painstakingly review each submission.
Error-prone: Manual entry often leads to errors, from miscalculated amounts to missing receipts. These mistakes can result in inaccurate financial records and potential compliance issues.
Lack of real-time visibility: Expense reports provide a retrospective view of spending, making it challenging to track expenses in real time. This delay can hinder proactive cost control.
