Serko Expense is an enterprise grade, expense management solution optimised for supporting corporate card programs. The application lives in the cloud, is relevant to organisations with as few as 50 employees right up to large organisations with more than 10,000 employees and is proven to help companies make significant cost savings through better expense management.
Managing corporate expenses through Serko Expense couldn’t be simpler. Using the Serko Mobile app, employees simply take a photo of their receipt, add a description and submit for approval straight from their phone. Every night, card transactions from the previous day are pulled in and matched automatically with the correct receipt. Credit card reconciliation stops being a month end project and becomes a daily task that's done in a couple of minutes.
Reclaiming cash expenses is equally easy. Using the app, employees take a photo of their receipt, add basic coding details, and submit for approval. Serko Expense’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, extracts the date, vendor, $ amount and GST information from the receipt and automatically populates the expense item, avoiding the need for error-prone manual data entry.
Serko Expense can also create claims from receipts that are forwarded by email to our dedicated receipt management address. Again, using OCR technology, our system extracts the relevant expense data and creates a new item in their Serko Expense account. As with images from the mobile app, all emailed receipts that can be matched with a corporate card transaction will be automatically attached to the claim in Serko Expense.
By consolidating all corporate card and cash expenses into a single platform, organisations can control spending and enforce expense policies more effectively. The challenge is how to get visibility into the card spend so that it can be controlled effectively, and then how to get employees to provide all of their card receipts in a timely manner.
A proven solution is an online expense management tool, like Serko Expense, that has been optimised for corporate card reconciliation. Unlike other online expense management tools, Serko Expense not only pulls in card transactions data from all of the major banks every day, but also pulls in data from other sources, such as Serko Online and Uber for Business, which further improves the process of managing card spend.
Corporate card transactions are pulled in from your nominated bank or financial institution and matched automatically with the correct receipt, so reconciliation becomes an always-on process that's all done in a couple of minutes.
Say goodbye to the monthly expense claim grind. Employees capture receipts via the mobile app, or email receipts directly to Zeno, add a description or cost centre if needed and submit for approval there and then.
Serko Expense works with all the major corporate cards - Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners, AirPlus and more, as well as pulling in data directly from vendors like Uber for Business and Cabcharge.
From the app, Zeno users can capture receipts and submit expenses, and managers can review expense claims on the go. No more hanging on to paper receipts, no more laborious expense claims, and users receive automatic status updates throughout the workflow.
With Serko Mobile users can:
As you’d expect, users receive alerts directly to their phone when something needs reviewing or approving.
