Webinar: Smart ERP setups to automate expense management
Dec. 13, 1 PM EST/10 AM PST

As busy human beings, we often just scratch the surface of most products we use. For example, did you know you can auto-enable a work mode feature on iPhones to turn off notifications during the workday? 

We often hear from delighted Ramp admins when they discover a nifty feature on the platform. In this article, we thought we’d call out some of these features so you can stop spending time on manual tasks that don’t drive your business forward.

How many of these features are you taking advantage of?

1. Enable receipt-capture integrations to eliminate the need for expense reports

Enable the Gmail and Amazon for Business integrations to help capture your team’s receipts in the background so it’s one less thing to worry about.

“Chrome browser, Gmail integration and Amazon integration make for easy receipts matching that saves our employees time.” - Kacie M


2. Integrate your HRIS provider for easier user management

Integrate your HRIS provider with Ramp to automatically update employees’ location and department changes.


3. Add expense policies to Ramp for easy reference

Add your team’s expense policy to your settings in Ramp so employees can easily access and reference it.


4. Input your travel policy to control T&E spend

Add your team’s travel policy to Ramp so your team can access it via the Ramp Chrome extension or mobile app when booking flights and lodging.


5. Set up bill pay to process your invoices in minutes

Set up Ramp Bill Pay for one-click bill creation with precise details extracted, similar line items consolidated for GL coding, and vendor bank account numbers auto-collected. 


6. Designate a co-pilot

Assign a co-pilot to help manage expenses within Ramp.


7. Create alerts to stay on top of key transactions

Set alerts to keep track of transactions that meet specified criteria in addition to your out-of-flag rules. This helps to ensure the right people are still kept in the loop when transactions within a certain category, merchant or department exceed a specific amount without running into bottlenecks.


8. Check out partner rewards to reduce your vendor costs

Take advantage of partner rewards that offer over $350,000 in savings.
