Think about how you currently process expense reports.
Maybe you are used to having employees fill out an Excel sheet, print it out and staple all of the related receipts to it. Then this stack of papers will need to be set on a supervisor’s desk for their approval before it is then set on the desk of the Accounts Payable representative. If the supervisor goes on vacation or loses track of the expense reports on their desk, that paper expense report could sit there for a while. And the employee who submitted it might not know what is delaying them from receiving payment.
Routing the expense report electronically speeds up the approval process while giving you visibility to its status. Since the document is already electronic, you won’t need to scan or index it to be able to retrieve them at a later date. Rather than searching for a document in a file cabinet or on another employee’s desk, you can type in a search value and look up that document right from your desktop.
