ExpenseAnywhere Announces Mobile Apps for Expense Management


December 7, 2011 –ExpenseAnywhere, a leader in travel & expense management solutions, announced today the release of the ExpenseAnywhere Mobile App, associated with its ExpenseAnywhere solution.

The ExpenseAnywhere Mobile App empowers users to instantly add expense details and capture receipt images from anywhere at any time.  With the ExpenseAnywhere App available for Blackberry, iPhone, and Android, users will never miss submitting another expense or receipt. Now they can capture it, track it, and submit it, all from the convenience of their smart phones.

The ExpenseAnywhere Mobile App enables users of smart phones to:
·         Add Expenses:  Users can enter expense & currency details, vendors and locations, add comments, capture receipt images, and check statuses of their expense reports.
·         Capture Receipts:  With ExpenseAnywhere receipt imaging, users can simply and easily capture and submit receipt images using their phone’s camera. The receipt images are maintained in the user’s inbox within the online system, which can then be attached to the appropriate expense report.  By cutting back on scanning and faxing receipts, the ExpenseAnywhere Mobile App helps to reduce the burden on corporate resources. 
·         Approve Expense Reports:  Designated users are provided with the ability to approve reports quickly, resulting in faster processing of expense claims.
With this new app, registered users of ExpenseAnywhere will be able to download the app free of charge and promptly log-in to their company account to view select expense reporting information.  They’ll enjoy the ability to access and update their expense reports just as quickly as expenses are incurred.  No more waiting to get to the hotel room or arrive back at the office to view expense report information.  Travelers, managers, and approvers will now be able to simply log-in to their smart phone app and access data in real time.

In addition, users can book travel with ExpenseAnywhere’s integrated travel booking solution partner, Orbitz for Business.  Orbitz for Business App users can make changes to their itinerary, check-in via mobile device, and proactively receive notifications regarding their travel reservations; giving integrated customers the most comprehensive mobile solution available.

The release of ExpenseAnywhere’s mobile application marks a significant step for the field of travel and expense management automation - a field that has seen significant growth over the past decade as companies transition from traditionally paper-based expense management systems to fully-automated paperless systems.
