Expense management automation: The role of automation in expense platform success

There’s no doubt the significant role that corporate expense platforms play for employers and their employees. So it’s no wonder why competition is stiff and the market for expense reimbursements is thriving.

Keeping up with the changing landscape of reimbursement

Traditional manual processes, riddled with challenges such as manual receipt collection and error-prone reconciliations, hinder the agility of organizations. Expense platforms, as key players in this landscape, are increasingly recognizing the need to streamline these processes to deliver a competitive edge to their users.

With the surge in remote and hybrid work setups, finance teams are undergoing a fundamental reboot, moving away from traditional paper-based and manual processes towards the adoption of cloud-based systems. These modern systems facilitate seamless budget requests, digital payments, and the integration of tools designed to enhance overall efficiency. This paradigm shift has propelled the substantial growth and investment witnessed by corporate expense platforms, as organizations recognize the need for agile financial solutions that align with the evolving dynamics of the workforce.

Expense platforms can now leverage technology platforms, including API-enabled services to automate and streamline data access, verification, or the entire expense reporting process. This strategic move is not just about efficiency gains but also about positioning these corporate expense platforms as integral components of an organization's operational backbone. The adoption of automation will result in increased platform efficiency—from expense approval to payment—elevated user satisfaction, and improved competitiveness in the market.

How automated auto insurance verification works

Expense platforms can leverage APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) via software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies, like MeasureOne, to streamline the process of capturing auto insurance data from employees using consumer-permissioned data. It’s simple:


  1. The expense platform requests the auto insurance data via your current receipt collection or expense records workflow
  2. When employees login to the expense platform, they are prompted to connect to their online insurance account to provide access to the requested data 
  3. APIs retrieve the requested source data directly from the online insurance account 
  4. With MeasureOne, If, for whatever reason, the employee cannot connect to their insurance account, they can upload a document to be processed with 100% accuracy. The document is parsed for the required data and shared with the expense platform.
  5. The verified auto insurance data is seamlessly integrated into the employee's expense records within the platform.
