Navigate Economic Uncertainty Through Visibility and Control of Business Spend

In these uncertain times, businesses are looking at how best to prepare for the coming weeks and months. Although changes are to be expected, your organisation shouldn’t let disruption drive up costs. We believe that, through full visibility and control of business spend, businesses can attain the adaptability and flexibility needed to navigate economic uncertainty and keep costs under control.

Now is the moment

It’s always a good time to control spending. But there’s no better moment than when sudden changes give you the opportunity to evaluate your business. In times when unpredictable market forces put new pressure on your plans and budgets, or trigger changes to VAT reclaim and cashflow, managing costs becomes more crucial than ever.

Why not view this moment as an unexpected opportunity to review your expense budgets and assess your spend management systems and processes? Taking the right action now will not only help steer you through this period of economic uncertainty but keep you on the path to success when things return to normal, too.

Gaining visibility to control costs

Achieving full control of costs can help you adapt and remain resilient in times of economic uncertainty, supporting a strong financial statement and enabling you to redirect budgets where the business needs them most. But before control comes visibility. Having a complete view of spend will allow you to gather powerful insights and be more proactive in your decisions. For example, let’s consider an organisation that uses centralised data to track and verify all the ways employees spend. This organisation would be much better positioned to detect and avoid such risks as policy violations, reporting inaccuracies, and potential fraud than an organisation without the same level of visibility. It’s in providing this visibility that SAP Concur solutions can help today’s business navigate the uncertain.
