Digital tools have transformed the way companies capture employee travel and business expenses. Employees are booking travel and making business purchases on mobile devices and in many different locations, meaning the cloud is quickly becoming the necessary option for businesses that want to track their T&E. But how do you select the right solution for your business?
Every year, IDC publishes a study that aims to offer an assessment of the available options. The research firm analyzes several different factors that businesses might want to consider, including experience, innovation, support, and ROI, among many others. Because the travel and expense space evolves rapidly, IDC says, “it is extremely important for end users to understand how vendors and their solutions are positioned currently as well as how those vendors and their solutions may be positioned in the next three to five years.”
