  • Analytical Reporting

While ExpenSite is a comprehensive solution, what truly distinguishes ExpenSite is the choice that is built-in to each capability.

Approvals are a good example: Approvals can be multi-level. As well, they can proceed along parallel tracks based upon project, organizational level, type of expense, employee type or exception criteria. This means business units can have completely different approval processes as can different types of employees. For instance, executives might have rules that pertain only to them for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance or consultants on a particular project might have to observe specific contract restrictions. The controls you institute can be as simple or strict, as broad or narrow as you wish. This design approach is applied across the board to ExpenSite capabilities.
