New Delhi [India], July 11 (Newsvoir): A global leader in expense management solutions, American Express offers customized expense management solutions to over 6,00,000 corporates globally, and more than 60% of Fortune 500 companies. In India, American Express works with over 13,000 large corporates and MSMEs (mid and large corporates) streamline purchasing, simplifying reporting and reconciliation processes for work-related expenses and help realize savings from more efficient expense management, minimizing reconciliation time and auditing.

Indian corporates especially small and medium enterprises are now placing equal priority on expense management and on increasing revenues. However, with no fully automated processes to catch non-compliance in policies related to expenses, there is an ample room for ushering in efficiencies, especially on travel and entertainment spends, which is seen as among the top three controllable expenditures besides salaries & benefits for corporates.

Sharing her views, Saru Kaushal, Vice President and General Manager, Global Commercial Services, American Express Banking Corp., India said, "Use of expense management solutions is expected to see a tremendous growth over the next few years in India. Companies are realising the benefits of integrating technology and finance to leave no room for leakages. With American Express' customised expense management solutions and corporate card programs, companies can avoid such leakages as all transactions are tracked in real time. This helps companies understand expenditure trends, out of pattern expenditure and can further Travel policies to avoid out of policy spends.
