Mobile and Online Expense Management

Visa® Spend Clarity for Enterprise is an intuitive expense management tool that works alongside the Commercial Purchase Card program that gives cardholders the ability to submit expense reports, photos of receipts and notes for each transaction right from their phone, using the Spend Clarity app, eliminating the errors of manual data entry.   

You can create approval workflows, as well as GL mapping and coding, to simplify reconcilement by automatically updating your existing AP system/general ledger. Out of pocket expenses can be managed within the tool as well.
