Many businesses aren’t sure yet if the latest technology revolutions – such as artificial intelligence and process automation – present meaningful opportunities for growth. But if there’s one universal truth about technology, it’s this: today’s innovations are tomorrow’s requirements. Technology advances more rapidly every day, and it’s imperative for businesses to keep pace to stay competitive.
To help you understand what challenges and opportunities technology presents, we’ve partnered with The Wall Street Journal to create The Intelligent Business, a podcast series with a wealth of insights about how businesses can use emerging technologies to automate more of their processes and control company spending.
In the series, each episode tackles a specific issue that companies might encounter on their path to becoming a best-run business. Below, we’ve compiled an overview of each of the themes and trends you’ll discover in the podcast:
- A Shifting Landscape: Business Travel Insights
AI is playing a huge part in simplifying spend management and automating more of the process for both managers and employees.

More sources of data allow you to serve travelers better when they’re on the road – and keep them safer – lowering your risk and increasing employee satisfaction.

Creating expense reports manually is time consuming for employees and could even result in unintentional T&E fraud. AI-driven technology is making receipt capture, reporting, and approvals nearly effortless.
- Seeing the Unseen: A Solution for Travel and Expense Compliance
People make mistakes and sometimes misuse company funds, but AI is allowing companies to catch more exceptions and reduce their compliance risks.
- The End Game: Using Spend Data to Drive Growth
Greater visibility into your company spending means more insights derived from data. That allows you to make more informed business decisions about budgets, boost revenue, and increase employee satisfaction.
