Overview

The Evolution of End-to-end eTravel Process

01

In the past, companies have not always made the link between business travel and expenses, as they're often managed by different departments. But when you consider that around 90% of employee expenses are incurred during business trips, it becomes apparent that for finance to truly be in control of company spend, they need to have visibility and influence over the entire end-to-end process.

02

For that reason, many companies are aligning processes and investigating solutions that intuitively help the business manage both functions in a streamlined way. From the starting point of booking the trip to the final step of reporting and analyzing spend, they're looking for ways to remove manual steps, improve workflows and reduce costs.

Comprehensive Insights for Finance Departments

Travel Policy Compliance Assistance

One of the most notable and immediate changes your team will feel working with eTravel is the shift from unmanaged to managed travel. Without eTravel, employees typically reserve travel using numerous different online booking tools, or one overworked employee manually books travel at the request of multiple employees. This makes it difficult to achieve travel policy compliance and provide duty of care.
