Bridging the Gaps: The Convergence of Meetings, Travel, and Expense Management

At most companies, business activities such as meetings management, travel procurement, and expense processing are managed in separate ways, by separate teams, with data ending up in separate reports without connection. Gaps between these important areas allow for risk associated with policy noncompliance, unmanaged spending, and a general lack of strategic oversight in these interdependent budgetary areas. In this state, companies are open to unrationalized spending and risk associated with noncompliance with travel policies, lapses in expense processes, and missed cost-saving opportunities in the management of meetings and events.

Now, imagine the ability to see the lifecycle of these business functions with information interconnected. Understanding, for example, the full cost of a meeting or event including travel costs and with expense processing seamlessly integrated; or the ability to see spending across all travel-related sectors, bridging the gap between business travel and meetings travel. Today, this is possible through integrations available between meeting, travel, and expense technologies. Concur and Cvent present this white paper, Bridging the Gaps: The Convergence of Meetings, Travel, and Expense Management, to provide a glimpse into the new technological innovations that make this possible.
