Expense management options for SAP SuccessFactors: Reimburse vs other Expense Management Software

Did you know that every expense report from your employees could take up to 30 minutes? This includes the time needed to collect, scan, create and finally submit the expense entry. 

Modern expense management systems circumvent this by utilising optical character recognition (OCR). This technology converts printed or handwritten text in images or scanned documents into machine-readable and searchable digital text. 

However, that does not account for the fact that more than 10% of such submissions are duplicated or non-compliant.

All these add up in organisations with decent employee size. It is obvious that good expense management is not a choice; it is what makes or breaks a company. 

A good expense management software will help to reduce time spent on such administration, freeing up precious time for more productive work activities. It also gives management a more accurate picture of the company’s financial situation, which aids in making sound decisions and keeping capital healthy.

Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of business expenses can also help businesses better monitor and control their outlays for the trip’s many costs.

Cherry-pick what is best for your business

Imagine this situation: you’re hunting for the ideal pair of shades. What makes it the best pair? It’s a great fit, functional, and won’t break the bank. Choosing the wrong pair ticks off dissatisfaction with what you’ve got, offering no sense of practicality.

At the same time, organisations should also assess how well the product integrates with its current system and its cost, budget, and expectations. 

It isn’t always the case that the more expensive option will solve the problem. Ultimately, it is the one that can solve your organisation’s unique challenge statement. In this article, we will explore the difference between Rolling Array’s Reimburse and the generic expense management software on the market.
