  • Bob to Introduce himself (3 Minutes)President of CertifyBrief intro on Certify, began in 2008, reason for developing etcExperience and person thoughts on space, how its evolving and changing over years
  • Introduce Webinar: (2 minutes)Today we will be discussing: Travel & Expense Management Trends for 2013: How CFO’s are employing new technologies to increase insight and drive growthTodays topic and data is derived from our Annual Expense Management SurveyAn invite only survey sent to finance professionals from all over US, companies of all sizes Great response, insight from over 160 companies
  • Quickly read through bullets to help build case of why today’s webinar and expense management are important to focus on.
  • This chart represents the overall current status of Expense Management processes across al organizations.
  • There is an even split between companies using Excel and companies using Automated/ web solutions for expense management
  • This slide represents the total percent of companies on a manual process. A manual process, we consider to be spreadsheets, pen and paper or a homegrown solution.
  • This slide represents the divide between small business and enterprise organizations and how they differ with their current travel and expense management processes.
  • Small Business: 40% on Excel & 23% on Pen and Paper for a total of 63% on a manual process – No Small business on ERPMid-Sized: over 65% on Excel and 7% on Pen and paper for a total of 72% on manual processEnterprise: 15% on Excel and 5% on pen and paper for a total of 20% on manual processesSummary: Provide insight into why you think small business is the laggard on making the switch to automationPerceived cost, extra expense Perceived timely implementation & Lack of resources to implement
  • Discuss the importance of integrationIncrease efficiency
  • Take a little time on this slide and really drive in the point that overall companies are planning on making the switch. The data on this slide is based on those who responded to our survey and indicated they are currently NOT on an automated expense solution or ERP.
  • Walk through bullets and recap: Again, emphasize the HUGE number of companies making the switch.
  • The driving force behind making the switch from a manual process to an web-based system was pretty consistent across all sized organizations. The percent of importance shifted a bit but overall they all felt the number one driving force was overall simplicity and providing a system accessible globally and with mobile applications.
  • Walk through data: No big difference between small business and enterprise. All had same areas for improvement
  • Walk through data: possible reasons that difference between small business and enterprise pressures
  • This slide represents pain points current finance professionals experience around travel and expense management. This data is derived from all survey respondents for both using automation and using a manual system.
  • You could speak briefly on the importance of mobile and how we at Certify the importance our mobile application has on companies selecting our solution over other vendors. Companies are finding the need for their field and traveling reps to have access to mobile expense reporting and receipt management.
  • The average company using a manual expense reporting processes experience 81-90% compliance rates while companies using automated expense systems experience on average 91-99% compliance rates.
  • This point on this slide is to show the difference in reimbursement times for those using an automated system verses a manual system. Those using automation on average have their report approved within 4-7 days, where's automation is an average of 7 days It is nearly a twice as long process with those on a manual system
  • This is the slide to recap the presentation and bring in Certify.
