RALEIGH, North Carolina, September 26, 2019 - The travel expense accounting market is expected to grow at a steady rate, with 37 percent adoption of web-based travel expense (TE) solutions, according to Beroe Inc, a procurement intelligence firm. Companies are looking to leverage efficiencies in the workplace and reduce the burden of manual T&E reporting on business travelers and expense report administrators, resulting in the adoption of web-based expense management.
TEM (Travel Expense Management) software has not yet been adopted in emerging economy regions such as APAC, and are expected to see rapid growth in the next five years. The most preferred TEM capabilities by organizations and travelers are simplicity/ease of use for employees (65 percent), expense management automation (50 percent), integration with HR/finance systems (41 percent), and mobile applications/accessibility (36 percent).
Beroe, which is based in North Carolina, further stated that procurement experts can access this report on its recently launched market intelligence platform Beroe LiVE: live.beroeinc.com
Traditionally, large companies have focused on compliance and cost savings in travel expense management. However, in recent times, the focus has shifted onto the travel and an end-to-end solution that gets data from different sources and creates the expense solution in real time, reducing the effort required from travel.
Manual data entry and insufficient processes account for 37 percent of the challenges faced by employees in expense management, followed by a lack of visibility into spend which is responsible for 22 percent of challenges faced by employees. Other challenges include an inability to enforce corporate travel policies, lengthy reimbursement cycles and an increase in overall T&E expenses.
The research methodology adopted for the report included:
TEM suppliers can be distinguished based on a low cost of acquisition, maintenance, support and upgrade, high staff productivity, low cycle time, business intelligence, real-time reports, and analytics. Companies with large T&E spend typically use a single supplier to reduce the cost of vendor management, system integration, and user training.
