Spend management FAQs
View some of the most common questions and answers related to spend management software.
Are expense reports included?
Great spend management systems remove the need for paper expense reports. Employees have access to better spending methods, and shouldn't need to pay out of pocket.
If an expense claim is required, employees can instantly claims within the software, and attach their receipt the moment they pay. This leads to more accurate expense management, a higher receipt collection rate, and faster expense reimbursements.
Does it work with accounting software?
Spend management software makes bookkeeping and accounting far easier. Your accurate, up-to-date spend data is exported to a CSV, Excel, or XML file instantly, and then uploaded to your accounting software just as quickly.
Spendesk integrates natively with Xero and DATEV, and we'll build custom export files for any other accounting software or enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool you prefer.
Will it help me close the books?
Perhaps the single biggest benefit of spend management platforms is their impact on expense reconciliation and bookkeeping. Spendesk users save on average 4 days per month thanks to easier bookkeeping.
You'll have 98% of expense receipts submitted on time, automated account reconciliation, and no more maverick payments. All you have to do is validate payments, and export.
Can I use this in the procurement process?
Spend management platforms are a great replacement for procurement software in many small businesses. If the number of invoices and suppliers is moderate, a spend management tool is more than enough. It also lets you have the same tool and process for sourcing, card payments, invoicing, accounts payable, and expense claims, which makes life simpler for everyone.
Companies managing large supply chain levels and countless purchase orders may prefer to keep their procurement process separate. But spend management systems are a perfect complement to manage ad hoc or operational spend alongside procurement.
Doesn't this just add another process?
Business spend management lets you consolidate what are currently separate processes. Instead of having credit cards, expense claims, invoices, and spend analysis tools, spend management is all of these together. Combining these streamlines your internal processes and saves everyone time.
And because these solutions were built for businesses, it's also easy to set up and intuitive to use. You're replacing a handful of poor processes with one that was actually built for purpose.
Why is this better than credit cards and expenses?
Both corporate credit cards and expense reports were designed as workarounds. Credit cards are hard to track and prone to fraud, and expense reports are slow and require lots of admin.
A spend management system replaces these two processes with smarter company cards, expense automation (to remove all data entry), and then adds invoice processing. Together, this means one simple process for employees, and far more control for finance teams.
