With today’s increasingly mobile workforce, keeping track of business expenses can pose a challenge. For a company like the Boy Scouts of America, whose employees spend a majority of their time outside and not behind a desk, expense management on-the-go is a requirement.
CEO and Scout Executive Scott Seibert knew the Boy Scouts of America needed to update their financial systems. With the organization’s increasingly mobile workforce, they wanted to manage travel and other expenses with easy-to-use tools on their smartphones. With these requirements, Boy Scouts of America turned to SAP Concur for help.
Through the implementation of Concur Expense, Boy Scouts of America now has an expense solution that streamlines the submission, review, and processing of employee expense reports. This automated solution also integrates with enterprise resource management systems and credit card programs, giving their finance teams more visibility into employee spend.
Whether they are backpacking in the woods or sitting behind a desk, employees can easily submit expenses online through their mobile phone—reducing paperwork and errors, and increasing overall efficiency. Capturing and submitting expenses as they happen saves time and reduces error, increasing the speed of processing and reimbursement, and ultimately employee satisfaction.
The more we can manage in the cloud, and via mobile, the better. If we can do this, we’ll be more productive, better able to serve the millennial generation, and we’ll stick around another 108 years. -- Scott Seibert, Boy Scouts of America Executive/CEO, Blackhawk Area Council
