The Challenge: A top-tier consulting firm was struggling with outdated and cumbersome travel reconciliation processes. For each trip taken by a field rep, executive assistants had to spend hours entering data such as traveler names, cost centers and trip details into a spreadsheet, then matching them with specific transactions. The Finance team then had to double-check all this data before reconciling. The process took up to three weeks and was often closed out just as the next monthly billing statement was released.
The Solution: The American Express Business Travel Account allowed the firm to capture traveler names, employee IDs and cost centers for each transaction, cutting down on administration time for both the Finance team and executive assistants. In this case, the Finance team was able to contain costs and protect against fraudulent transactions by setting controls around when and how much employees could spend on travel.
