February 22, 2011

Luke Switkowski’s session “Best practices for streamlining travel reimbursement processes and gaining insight into expense patterns” from HR Europe 2010 is now available

Last November in Barcelona Luke Switkowski delivered a session on optimizing SAP’s Travel Management offering to a standing room only crowd.

Luke is a long-time speaker who is well-known by attendees of SAPinsider events. This is your chance to listen to the session exactly as Luke delivered it at the event in Barcelona.

Walk through the steps required to configure travel management functionality to handle expenses electronically. Find out how to set up business rules, expense policies, country-specific accounting rules, and various expense permissions between different types of employee groups. Step through a demo that illustrates how employees can enter and keep track of their travel expenses using employee self-service (ESS). Determine whether a centralized system or decentralized travel management scenario is best for your needs. Examine how workflows can be set up to approve expenses in either scenario. Explore the pros and cons of handling travel reimbursements through your financials (FI) module versus payroll application. Explore the integration requirements of each and understand the impact of your choice on the employee.  Learn how to generate reports that indicate which categories are incurring the highest expenses, employee travel patterns, and other important travel metrics.
