Expense Management

The Vital Importance of Business Rules for Effective Expense Management

Corporate expense policies can be highly complex, and no two organizations have the same policy that determines thresholds for out-of-pocket expenses, such as employee travel purchases meals and
ground transportation.

Even in an era where shorter, simpler policies are becoming more common, there can still be many differences in travel policies for flight and hotel classes, car rental reimbursements, meals and so on. These corporate policies can be further complicated for companies with global operations, or those with clients who have their own policies when it comes to vendor expenses.
