“Work smarter, not harder.”
That’s a popular saying in the business world. It’s not an invitation to provide little to no effort – it means that you know how to make the most out of your time as painlessly as possible. That’s so important in any industry, but certain industries need to keep moving to survive. Case in point: the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).
New York is one of the biggest states in the country, and NYSDOT reflects the sheer size of the state in both geography and population. The department is responsible for the development and operation of the state’s highways, railroads, mass transit systems, ports, waterways and aviation facilities. With about 10,000 employees, NYSDOT covers 11 major regions and processes 70,000 to 80,000 travel vouchers per year.
It’s difficult to keep track of that many moving parts. Imagine processing 70,000 to 80,000 travel vouchers manually through several different systems. And that’s just travel vouchers. With so many employees, so much spending, and so many channels, a manual system is a recipe for disaster.
Good transportation is all about accuracy, accountability and efficiency. Why should corporate spend management be any different?
NYSDOT chose ExpenseAnywhere, a cloud-based solution to automate their spend management processes. The solution includes easily integrates to any ERP system, allows approves to set compliance standards in line with already existing company policies, receipt imaging to instantly validate purchases, one click expense reporting, mileage tracking, corporate cards and more. After a year of using ExpenseAnywhere, NYSDOT saved over 20 percent in travel expenses. And that’s not all. There are a host of benefits to automation:
- Ease of use and management.
- Nearly paperless.
- Automated work flow.
- Compliance with company policies.
