Filling out expense reports and meticulously keeping track of expenses incurred while on a business trip or participating in a business related activity is tedious, and it is an activity that few professionals enjoy doing. Keeping track of all expenses while on the go is also difficult, as a person’s mind may be preoccupied with the meetings, tasks, or other jobs at hand during the course of their busy day.
The ability to keep track of expenses using a mobile device, with mobile access to an automated expense report system, makes keeping accurate and easy expense reports exponentially more convenient. A professional can use their smart phone to track and log all expenses incurred during the course of their day, without needing to jot down amounts or remember each minor expense. As a person goes along their daily routine, they can log all expenses in real time using their phone, and this leads to more accurate and convenient expense reporting.
Mobile access also allows for receipt imaging, which provides an entirely new convenience to the expense report filing process. Rather than carrying around receipts during the course of a business trip or event, an employee can simply take a picture of the receipt with their mobile phone and upload the photo to their automated expense report. This allows on the go expenses to be tracked accurately and in a real time fashion that embraces today’s busy lifestyle.
Mobile access in terms of expense reports allows an employee to complete accurate reports no matter where their business may take them. Gone will be the days of wasted time spent thinking over, analysing, tracking, and manually filing expenses after a trip, as any employee can instead file all expenses as they go along. The saved time, saved money, and accurate tracking provides a level of convenience to both company managers and company employees in a way that can’t be achieved without beneficial mobile access!
