expense report software

Expense report software is a computer program or suite that provides enterprise administrators with a clear picture of the organization's spending through automated analytics and reporting.

With effective expense report software, it is easy to track and approve workforce-related costs, create new reports and modify existing ones, add or delete specific expense items, and leave comments. An email can be automatically sent to appropriate personnel when an expense item is approved or rejected. New users and user categories can be quickly added, and outdated categories deleted as the enterprise evolves.

A well-written expense report program takes advantage of flexible tools such as PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) and MySQL, a relational database to streamline functionality and present a user-friendly interface.
