Travel and Expense Policy Development and Automation

Course Description:

Do you have a detailed travel and expense policy? Expense policies have become more complicated as the way travel is booked and rewarded has changed. Hotels and airlines have created incentives for travelers to pay higher rates in exchange for rewards programs. It is more important than ever that every organization have a well thought out and detailed T&E plan, to be both fair and also to ensure that the company is not overpaying. T&E policies can also be controversial and political - and therefore both changing and enforcing policies, is a challenge for any AP operation.
