Infor Delivers Anytime, Anywhere Expense Management

Infor Expense Management 7 Service Pack 3 Offers More Choice and Control over Travel and Entertainment Expenses.

Atlanta, GA, March 13, 2009 --( Infor announced today the availability of Infor Expense Management 7 Service Pack 3 (SP3), a Web-based travel & entertainment (T&E) expense solution used by both large enterprises and SMBs in more than 30 countries. New features include support for mobile devices, integration with online booking services and the ability to capture and incorporate business expenses on personal credit cards into expense reports.

T&E is one of the top three business costs, and today many companies are scrutinizing their T&E policies to analyze spending, identify cost savings and reduce unnecessary travel. Infor Expense Management helps companies enforce policies and maintain accuracy throughout the submission and approval process. The solution is offered with four deployment options to best meet a company’s current and future needs: on premises, SaaS subscription, SaaS hosted license, and dedicated hosting.

Infor Expense Management 7 SP3 allows the mobile workforce to manage and submit expense reports from anywhere at any time through a new user interface specifically for use with mobile devices. Users can create, submit and approve expense reports in real-time, improving accuracy, reducing the amount of administrative time required to process and clear a report and allowing employees to remain productive and not bogged down with paperwork.

“The addition of mobile device support will provide more flexibility for our users and help ensure timely and accurate expense reporting,” said Michael Black, IT manager, IEM System, AT Kearney. “Our employees can create and approve expense reports without returning to their desk, which will allow them to work more efficiently and speed financial reconciliation. Infor continues to deliver innovative functionality to its Expense Management solution that simplifies corporate policy enforcement as well as the management and reimbursement of T&E expenses.”

A number of other expense management solutions force customers to rely on a single online booking vendor of the software company’s choice. The latest release of Infor Expense Management simplifies interoperability with online booking vendor platforms, allowing customers to choose their preferred online booking partner and providing visibility into the gap between “Planned” and “Actual” T&E expenses.

As part of its integration strategy with online booking vendors, Infor also announced today interoperability between Infor Expense Management 7 SP3 and Amadeus e-Travel Management. Customers of Infor and Amadeus are now able to manage travel from booking to reimbursement quickly and easily. This helps further enforce corporate travel policies by providing a single point of entry for all travel-related needs, keeping costs down and speeding the T&E management process.

Many SMBs do not provide corporate credit cards and require employees to manually input items from their personal credit cards into the expense management system. Service pack 3 provides the capability to import reimbursable expenses from personal credit cards directly into the expense management system, delivering the benefits corporate card users are accustomed to, including quicker and more accurate processing and approval.

“In today’s challenging economic environment companies need more than a system to automate the reporting process, they require employee-friendly expense management solutions that help drive down costs and stringently enforce spending and processing policies,” said Bob Steven, Expense Management product manager, Infor. “The latest version of Infor Expense Management makes it easier for users to interact with the system in the office and on the road, and provides customers more choice in how they deploy the application across the enterprise. We continue to incorporate innovations requested by our customers and provide solutions that will grow with them and easily adapt to changing market requirements.”

Infor Expense Management 7 SP3 is available in 11 languages including English, Swedish, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese.
