Seamless Expense Management Integration for SF Customers

Rolling Arrays
Published on May 17, 2024

“Time is money,” as the saying goes. In today’s hyper-competitive business environment, streamlining operations and maximising financial clarity are not just desirable; they’re essential. For many SAP SuccessFactors (SF) customers, this imperative is hindered by a disconnect between their expense management systems and their Core HR Information Systems (HRIS).

Imagine a scenario where an employee’s expense report vanishes into a labyrinth of disconnected systems. The regional sales manager-employee had recently transferred to a new territory. However, the expense management system still reflected his old cost centre and manager. His expense report gets caught in an approval limbo, leading to reimbursement delays and a frustrated employee.

This is not a hypothetical situation—it’s a common pain point for many organisations. A study by Aberdeen Group found that companies with mature expense management systems experience a remarkable 50% reduction in processing time compared to those with manual processes. This translates to significant cost savings, improved employee morale, and a more efficient use of valuable resources. Disconnected systems, however, create a tangled web of inefficiencies.

The Ripple Effect of Disconnection

The cost of disconnection goes beyond lost expense reports. A disconnected system creates a ripple effect of inefficiencies that can cripple an organisation’s financial health and operational efficiency.

Consider the case of a marketing executive recently promoted and relocated to a new office. Her expense report, reflecting the old cost centre and manager, gets routed to the wrong approver. This leads to a delay in reimbursement, forcing the executive to dip into her pocket to cover business expenses. Not only does this negatively impact employee morale, but it also creates a compliance headache for the finance team when reconciling the books.

Or take the example of a field technician whose job requires frequent travel. The disconnected system needs to recognise his updated mileage rate when he submits an expense report due to a recent policy change. The finance team manually corrects the report, delaying reimbursement and skewing the organisation’s travel budget.

These scenarios highlight the ripple effect of disconnected systems. Manual data entry, delayed reimbursements, inaccurate reporting, and compliance challenges stem from the need for real-time integration between expense management and the core HRIS.

At Rolling Arrays, we aim to illuminate the transformative power of seamless integration for SF customers. We understand that the myth of integration being an unnecessary add-on must be debunked. Instead, we showcase the immense value of real-time integration. This is done via Reimburse, which helps organisations optimise expense management processes and drive organisational efficiency.

Benefits Unleashed: Streamlining Workflows and Enhancing Financial Clarity

Embrace real-time integration and unlock a new era of streamlined workflows and financial clarity. Here’s how seamless integration empowers SF customers:

  • Adaptive Expense Workflows: When an employee’s HR data changes – whether a manager change, grade change, department change, or location change – the integrated expense management system automatically updates the approval workflow. This eliminates the risk of expenses getting stuck in the wrong approval queue, ensuring swift reimbursements and a seamless employee experience.
  • Precise Cost Allocation: With real-time integration, expense data is automatically mapped to the correct cost centres, projects, and departments based on the employee’s current information. This enhances financial visibility, allowing organisations to track spending patterns and identify opportunities for cost savings accurately.
  • Compliance Simplified: Maintaining compliance with tax regulations and internal policies becomes a breeze with a centralised repository of expense data. Integration ensures that every expense report is reviewed and approved according to the organisation’s rules, simplifying audits and reducing non-compliance risk.
  • Informed Decision-Making: Leveraging the rich data and powerful analytics tools enabled by integration, organisations can make more informed financial decisions. From optimising resource allocation to identifying areas for cost savings, the insights gleaned from integrated expense management empower leaders to drive strategic success.
  • Elevating Employee Satisfaction: Streamlined expense reporting reduces employee frustration and empowers them to focus on their core responsibilities. Faster reimbursements and a user-friendly expense management experience improve employee satisfaction and morale.

Conclusion: Paving the Way for Financial Prosperity

In the business world, disconnected systems come at a high cost. For SF customers, seamless integration with Reimburse unlocks the full potential of expense management and enhances financial accuracy. Integration paves the way for smoother operations, better decision-making, and economic prosperity.

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” Reimburse integration enables significant savings and efficiency.
