Acuity Solutions & Certify Partner to Automate Expense Management with Sage
Acuity Solutions and Certify have announced a new partnership to help Sage customers automate expense and spend management.
Automating finance management functions is a growing priority for many businesses, with travel and expense costs accounting for up to £39 billion annually in the UK and growing at 3.7%*.
Acuity customers can now benefit from the seamless integration between Sage Business Cloud and Certify. Employees can submit expenses on the go using the intuitive mobile app, as well as building and submitting reports automatically to a set schedule.
The relationship between Acuity and Certify means that businesses using Sage’s cloud and enterprise solutions can significantly reduce the time spent on routine processing tasks. Finance managers and accounts payable teams using Sage can now:
- Ensure that employee spending complies with corporate business travel policies, for example by flagging policy violations and detecting duplicate receipts
- Significantly reduce the costs associated with manual workflow tasks such as processing, approving, and reimbursement of expenses
- Improve visibility and reporting of expense spending, which according to the Aberdeen Group can be 6-12% of the total annual budget
- Understand spending trends by business unit or departmental function
In 2016, The Sage Group selected Certify as its internal expense management solution, rolling it out to employees worldwide.
