Creating Oversight and Transparency Into T&E Spending
Pursuing new customers and nurturing existing relationships requires travel and expense management (T&E) for meetings, meals and entertainment. These costs can add up quickly. Business travel in the United States is extensive. Without an automated system in place, employees spend a significant amount of time in manually completing and processing reports.
Consider for your company:
- How many of your employees routinely submit expense reports?
- Do you know how much time your employees spend on these reports?
- Do you have analytics that provide insight into your top spending categories and where you might be able to achieve the most significant cost savings?
If you are struggling with some of the answers to these questions, you are not alone. Frequently, financial advisory firms tell us they lack adequate oversight and transparency around T&E spending.
As businesses grow, many leaders find they are not able to watch over costs as closely as they would like. One way to help address this is to cultivate fiscal discipline as a core company value. The choices you make as the owner of a financial advisory firm will infiltrate the culture of your company. Sure, you can take clients to a fancy restaurant or choose to travel first class on the company. But know these choices will set the tone for your culture as your team watches your example. Be smart with the choices you make and the actions you take.

We have a relationship with Certify, a leading expense management provider, to help clients save time by streamlining their expense reporting processes, implementing proper controls, and gaining insights into top spending categories to identify opportunities for reducing future expenses.
