How Much of Your T&E Are You Currently Capturing and Managing?
Disruptive Innovation for Travel, Meetings, Payment and Expense Programs:  Bes t Practices From World Class Organizations Leveraging  

As global programs mature, obtaining results via traditional sourcing and Travel Agency based approaches are delivering diminishing returns.  T&E ranks as an organization's #2 indirect spend with many program run rates as a percentage of annual revenues north of 2%. Senior leaders are searching for new sources of innovation to not only take out cost but also align with broader company imperatives. In fact, many leaders from world class organizations now view the traditionally tactical function of Travel-Meetings-Payment- Expense as an area of opportunity to move to a strategic priority.
