Travel Expense Software varies in quality and sophistication, and you may need many features, or just the basics. Be sure to thoroughly consider what your company's needs are to ensure you get the system that is best for your situation.
Not all systems will allow you to choose how to set up your service (Overriding expenses is potentially allowed vs. Hard Code). Some only give you one method of use, and it usually depends on the quality of the system you are evaluating.
In addition, pay attention to the connectivity to your accounting or payroll system. About half the time expenses are paid out of payroll, half the time from Accounts Payable. Make sure that the expense software system can connect with your accounting system or payroll system.
Also, the better vendors actually connect their system to your A/P or payroll and even create an export to your General Ledger as part of the Implementation. It should flow automatically to the other system, not require any extra keying in, where your company can account for the value and cut the expense reimbursement checks for your employees.
