Travel and entertainment—second only to payroll as the largest business expense—is becoming increasingly more difficult to control as companies expand across borders and grow through acquisitions. Therefore effective budgeting, planning, and management of T&E expenses is critical for companies of all sizes in 2015 and beyond. How does your company’s overall Travel and Entertainment spend, and spend within key categories, compare with other companies? How are companies leveraging automation to better understand and control how employees are spending the company dime? Unfortunately, benchmarks for overall T&E spend and key T&E spend within each categories are all but impossible to find.
