Synergy Expense Management

Employee-initiated expenses can account for a surprisingly large percentage of total corporate spending. In challenging economic times, companies that can’t track, analyze, and control these expenditures are missing an important opportunity for cost savings. Consider, for example, the cost of unnecessary travel, unauthorized purchases, unused discounts and rebates, honest expense report errors, and under-billed clients. Other hidden costs can include the time and effort spent on administrative duties related to accounting for expenses and payments, as well as outright fraud. Organizations that gain control over employee-initiated spending and automate expense-related processes can see dramatic benefits to the bottom line. More than just an end-to-end travel expense management solution, VISUAL ERP Financials enables employees to plan and expense business travel; request and approve payment requests; capture time for charging to projects and cost centers; and calculate paid time off and overtime. These integrated applications share a single, intuitive interface, making them easy to learn, use, and maintain. With expense management, the result is comprehensive control over employee-initiated corporate spending.

VISUAL ERP Financials allows even complex, multinational organizations to automate expense-related business processes and enforce policy compliance, reducing associated administrative costs and decreasing the opportunity for accidental error and intentional fraud. With Expense Management, you can implement instantaneous global updates to policies and processes to support continuous improvement, while simultaneously managing local policies and statutory requirements.

Expense Management includes four core modules: Travel Plans, Reports, Payment Requests, and Timesheets. Each module features real-time policy notification, alerting employees to violations as they enter data and allowing them to provide explanations or make corrections before submitting plans or expenses; configurable workflow for alerting reviewers, obtaining necessary approvals, and then triggering events such as the issuance of plane tickets or the reimbursement of expenses; and business intelligence tools to analyze the solution’s database and search for opportunities to transform spending into savings. These applications work where you do—in your office, on the road, and around the globe. They support multiple languages and currencies, work with all international date and currency formats, and enable you to apply rules and policies specific to independent divisions or geographic locations.

Expense Management also accommodates country-specific per diem rates, local taxation requirements, variable VAT rates, and mileage rates.

  • Improve employee compliance with spending policies
  • Lower administrative costs
  • Increase savings through effective vendor negotiation and rebate usage
  • Reduce unnecessary travel and purchases

Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and VISUAL ERP Financials

In response to a series of accounting and management scandals in major corporations, the United States Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This legislation established many new requirements for governing corporations and other businesses serving capital markets. The Act includes reforms to reduce fraud and decrease failures in corporate reporting, particularly with regard to the structure and responsibilities of audit committees.

Sarbanes-Oxley puts the responsibility of compliance on the public corporation in capital markets not the accounting/financial software provider.

Synergy products, however, together with Synergy services can provide some tools and assistance that could be used to help a corporation meet certain compliance requirements. Such tools in VISUAL ERP Financials that our customers may find of some assistance include the following:
