The Challenge

Real-time visibility on spending enables businesses to monitor expenses against budgets, ensure they are not overspending, and curb wasteful expenditure. It also helps ensure they make well informed expense policy, and expense-related decisions.  

However, relying on excel to produce monthly expense reports or quarterly reviews, typically requires days of effort for the finance team.

Compiling and analysing vast amounts of expense information in spreadsheets is not only cumbersome, but prone to errors, thus requiring significant checks and reconciliation.  

The Solution

Today, expense data can be fed into Anna instantly and directly, and reports generated automatically, saving time, and manpower for the finance team.

Quick and easy insights into spending trends, coupled with Anna’s anomaly detection helps identify policy-violations or policies that require upgrading. This provides approvers, admins, and company heads with transparency regarding behavioural changes in employees spending patterns.
