What is expense management automation?
Expense management tracks, monitors, audits employee spends, and approves or reimburses the expenses that are aligned with the company's expense policy. The traditional expense management process typically includes 5 - 10 manual steps and uses a paper- and spreadsheet-based system that requires a lot of time and energy to maintain and store. Finance team members have to chase down employees for receipts and expense reports at each month end to make sure the timely and accurate reimbursement and reporting. Unlike traditional expense management, expense management automation system like Ramp allows you to use software to automatically manage recording, tracking, reviewing, approving, and reporting for any employee expenses. Following the company's own expense policy, Ramp also automatically helps assure no one is overspending on any areas.
