ADP Canada Employer Services Partners with Concur to Remedy Travel & Expense Management Headaches



    ADP ExPManager(TM) is an intuitive, easy-to-use, on-demand service that
    automates each step of the corporate travel and expense management
    process

    TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - Lost receipts. Miscalculations. Ancient claims.
Out-of-policy business travel spending. Questionable purchases. Cutting
cheques. These, and other dreaded tasks associated with corporate travel and
expense management, can now become a thing of the past for employers and
employees alike, thanks to ADP ExPManager, a new automated travel and expense
management service from ADP, Canada's largest provider of outsourced employer
services.
    Every business trip begins with booking travel and ends with
reimbursement, but until now, companies had no way to manage the entire
process from start to finish. Powered by Concur (NASDAQ:   CNQR), the world's
leading provider of on-demand Employee Spend Management services,
ADP ExPManager provides companies with an efficient and cost effective method
of managing and controlling the entire process of procuring, approving and
reimbursing employees for corporate travel and related entertainment expenses.
    According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' 2006 Report on
Occupational Fraud & Abuse, fraud costs U.S. corporations an estimated
5 percent of revenues, or more than $652 billion. Of 1,134 occupational fraud
cases studied from Jan. 2004 through 2006, more than 90 percent involved some
type of asset misallocation, with 20 percent of that subset related to expense
reimbursement.
    "Finance, human resources and accounting departments are often burdened
by the management and policing of travel and expense policies when in fact
they should be focusing on higher priority, strategic initiatives," said
Heather Nairn-Rand, vice president of marketing and product management for ADP
Canada Employer Services. "ADP ExPManager is like a lifeline for employers and
administrators who are swimming against a rising tide of out-of-policy T&E
spend and drowning in a sea of paper expense reports."
    ADP ExPManager is an intuitive, easy-to-use, on-demand service that
automates each step of the travel and expense management process, including
travel booking, expense submission, report preparation and approval,
verification of policy compliance, employee reimbursement and analysis of
expense data. Through one intuitive web-based service, companies can control
employee travel spend at the time of procurement, then reconcile booked data
with what was actually spent, delivering unrivaled visibility and control into
every aspect of corporate travel and expense management.

    
    Key benefits for customers of ADP ExPManager include:

    -   Lower costs for travel by integrating front-end travel booking that
        enables companies to control spend before it occurs.
    -   Auditing and reporting capabilities to ensure employees comply with
        company travel policies and preferred vendors.
    -   Detection and prevention of fraudulent reporting of travel and
        business expenses by integrating company specific spending policies,
        ensuring that expenses are legitimate and booked within policy.
    -   Elimination of manual errors and/or duplicate expenses and archiving
        all receipts as digital images.
    -   Delivered as an on-demand service, eliminating expensive software,
        implementation, maintenance, and upgrade fees.
    -   Automatic report-status notification via email to both employees and
        approval managers.
    -   Safeguarding of confidential client data and data recovery support.
    -   Automatic transmission of corporate card charges to expense reports.
    -   Easily itemized everyday expenditures such as lodging expenses and
        business meals and capturing required information such as expense
        types, vendors, and meeting attendees.
    -   Automatic calculations, e.g. GST/PST taxes, car mileage
        reimbursement, totaling and error checking.
    -   Automated reimbursement of employee expenses through ADP payroll
        solutions.
