No need to crunch the numbers; there’s a high cost attached to keeping expense management processes in the dark ages, and company leaders have spoken up about it.
Business travelers hop into cabs, take to the airways and check into hotel rooms day in and day out. They’re meeting with clients, consulting with business partners, and possibly even burning the midnight oil while they’re in a faraway city. They’re out there working hard for the company, and from buying cups of coffee to paying checked-baggage fees, they’re racking up expenses at every turn. To make sure they’re keeping track of their spending—and upholding the integrity of your T&E policy—it helps to involve employees in the travel planning process.
