The proliferation of mobile devices is making it easier for companies and their projects to spread beyond international borders. Mobile professionals of every stripe have joined globetrotting executives in working remotely from airports, hotels and their homes. In this working environment, keeping operations flowing smoothly requires increasingly sophisticated mobile data tools.
Professionals working on the go should have online expense reporting, accounting and collaboration tools, according to a recent article on the Business Computing World website. For example, those managing projects on the road need to be able to see that their team members have entered all expenses before they generate sales invoices. And the best way to ensure mobile access to these data-intensive tools is by using cloud-based services and solutions.
For employees and managers on the go, mobile business expense tracker apps can provide a fast and easy way to enter and approve expenses as well as approve third-party vendor invoices. Chrome River EXPENSE, for example, makes it easy for you to stay current with expenses so when you get back to the office you can focus on what you do best — not on trying to remember your expenses and locate crumpled receipts. The sooner you enter expenses, the quicker you will be reimbursed what is owed to you, and the faster your company will be reimbursed what it’s owed.
With more professionals working from the road, waiting to tackle expense reports until the end of a business trip can create a bottleneck for employees, executives and approvers. Using cloud-based, mobile expense reporting can help keep AP processes on track, despite hectic day-to-day schedules and business travel.
We’d love to hear your tips and tricks for staying productive while working from the road. Does your organization offer mobile expense report software and approval tools?
