Corporate Credit Card Expense Management – made easy

Corporate Credit Card Expense Management
  • Debit card

Transparent and favourable transaction costs are probably among the most important factors when it comes to choosing a corporate credit card. However, advanced cards can do much more for your business. They automate and streamline your accounting processes, while reducing human error. Therefore, we show you how your business can profit from corporate credit card expense management systems.

What is corporate credit card expense management?

If your company issues virtual or physical debit cards to departments or individual employees, you need to keep track of all expenses. This is where corporate credit card expense management comes into play.

Capable credit card expense management software enables your company and accounting department to streamline its processes, save time and increase its efficiency. It allows you to automate your accounting workflows, for example, by attaching receipts, tagging transactions and assigning them to categories, such as personnel expenses or supplier payments. Even better: it is possible to import the card transaction data into your accounting software or automate this process through a convenient accounting software integration.

Furthermore, corporate credit card expense management solutions provide a real-time expense overview and enable your managers and accountants to keep control of all transactions at any time.

Why is it crucial to establish an efficient expense management process?

Corporate debit cards offer multiple advantages, such as more flexibility for employees and clear budget ownership. However, if managed poorly, you may be confronted with high administrative burden and overspending.

Therefore, you need to efficiently manage your expenses and set up a secure system, which avoids overspending and limits the negative effects of misuse or theft. Integrating a corporate credit card expense management strategy thus includes choosing the right security approach. Smart control card features enable your administrators to limit the amount to be spent or restrict usage in certain countries, while credit card expense management software helps you keep track of all expenses.

Without proper corporate credit card expense management, your accounting department might manually collect payment receipts and enter the expenses into your system one by one, which is prone to errors, especially when issuing multiple debit cards to your employees.

What is needed for an efficient corporate credit card expense management?

Efficient corporate credit card expense management automates and streamlines your accounting processes while at the same time increasing your security and control functions.

You can only improve your accounting processes if you can transfer data from your credit card expense management software to your accounting system, for instance through file exports or APIs. Also, make sure your credit card expense management software allows you to upload receipts and pre-categorize your expenses in order to automate a huge part of your accounting processes.

Further, expense management requires smart control features to reduce risks involved when issuing debit cards. This means that only administrators are granted full access rights and can apply limits or expiration dates to any card, for full control and transparency. Card users, on the other hand, can view their own transactions, attach receipts or block their card in case of fraud.
