Are you spending over $23,000 a year processing expense reports?

A few facts to consider:

  • Business travel expenses are one of the most difficult operating expenses to control due to the tedious details and lack of visibility.
  • Sixty eight percent of workers reported spending 30 minutes to 2 hours completing expense reports.
  • When processed manually, expense reports can cost over $26 per report.
