Our company is relatively easy to manage. Our staff go off and visit customers and rack up some travel costs and the odd overnight stay, and, of course, they want to be reimbursed for this. They like to remind the directors that although they love working for C2S, they can't do it for free. Shame.
So we started using our own software for expenses this week. We have the basic functionality there. We have the ability to compose a nice expenses claim - allocating each line to the correct cost code and to the correct Project. We have a built-in approval process. Above all, we have the central, visual on the expense. That makes it easier for payroll to allocate the spend in their pay.
We will expand this functionality over the coming months to be able to upload receipts as well.
