What a frustrating thing to do, track your business expenses. Whether you are the employee or the boss you have all had to do it and it is annoying. Expense reporting is even hard to remember to do. We have all skipped something on the report because it was too much of a hassle, losing our own personal funds just because we hated the reporting. Well there are some amazing technological advances in this field that will make all that frustration go away. Expense reporting software that not only allows you to easily upload your expenses but provides employers with the oversight to make sure it is getting done properly.
Avoid Confrontation With Forgetful Employees
You know that employee that you have had the same conversation with over and over and over again? That conversation that is usually too late to have any effect since they already screwed their reporting up again. Probably the same person who never filled their timesheet out correctly. Well, what if you could watch their expense reporting as it was happening to insure they were doing it correctly? The beautiful thing about this new expense reporting technology is the administrative and management tools that allow you to be the most helpful supervisor you can be.
Part of being an effective manager is creating an environment where your employees can function at their full potential. Maybe this employee messes some of the little things up but they are great at their job. Adding something like an automated expense reporting system to help them pull together the little things can relieve stress on your relationship and benefit their ability to perform.
Appoint Another Expense Manager
As the manager you can easily approve or decline expenses as they are submitted from multiple devices. You can even appoint another employee to be the manager of expenses for a certain trip or group of people so you can be hands off while still able to have someone responsible. This person can have the same access that you would have just to a specific group of employees. This is a way to give an exceptional employee some extra responsibility and keep track of everyone’s spending before it gets to you or the accounting department. It makes sense to implement a system that guarantees accurate reporting before you even have to look at it.
There are also fantastic administrative options that are available for the accounting department. Making their lives so much easier. With other people able to oversee what is going on with the expenses as it is happening, it creates an environment where everyone is able to focus on making your business run perfectly.
