The Future of
Travel & Expense at
With their relentless focus on the future, consumer electronics companies are defining the way we all live, work, and play. But innovation doesn’t stop with their products. Forward-thinking companies like Samsung Electronics take this same passion for pushing the boundary of what’s possible and apply it to their own internal processes, like employee spend management.
By using a single global solution for travel and expense (T&E) management, you can better manage spend in-country and internationally across business divisions, leading to simplified global business operations, lower costs, and
data insights to support business growth.
Global T&E Data
By centralizing spend data from employees in each Samsung Electronics business division into one system, you’ll get a single view of T&E spending. This allows you to better track and see spend even before it happens, eliminate data silos, and protect your business with governance, risk, and compliance solutions.

Thanks to the cloud, IT spending is shifting away from in-house development towards best-in-class cloud applications. In fact, T&E is one of the more mature markets for cloud adoption:
Cloud-enabled T&E software applications keep clients’ systems on the cutting edge, taking advantage of recent trends like mobile, AI, and API integrations between services. In addition, cloud-based T&E can help Samsung Electronics reduce development time while minimizing the risk of downtime or time-to-market delays, allowing IT to focus resources on projects that best achieve the company’s strategic initiatives.
At the same time, seeking opportunities for seamless integration among key technologies, like SAP next-generation ERP and SAP Concur travel and expense management, can lower the IT function burden, reduce data silos, and expand visibility across data and employee spending.
CIO Spend Trend: Integrating Applications in the Cloud
In 2016, T&E enterprise apps were 83.5% cloud, and that will increase to 94% in 2021.

For leading companies undergoing digital transformation, T&E automation is just the beginning. Innovative finance leaders go one step further by connecting every piece of spend data from every employee together, no matter how, when, or where it was spent.
By integrating all employee spend data, finance teams can have the insights and intelligence they need to make proactive, data-driven decisions about how the company’s money is spent, potentially saving millions of dollars.
