How to Decisively Narrow Down
Expense Management Providers

How can you tell if new travel and expense management software will help you solve your business challenges? Do you need to create a shortlist based on attributes like pricing, mobility, service model or user experience? Once you have a set of goals, it’s time to quickly establish which solution providers could help.

A quality RFP establishes a rubric for initial qualification (and disqualification) of travel and expense management software. This step-by-step guide will allow you to give the necessary context, so you can see which vendors deliver detailed bids that address your specific needs and are capable of fulfilling your unique project goals. Use the 40 incisive questions we suggest to make sure you can immediately narrow down your list based on responses.

Whether you're researching expense automation for the first time, or considering a switch from your current solution, issuing a thorough, detailed RFP will help to gather the information you need. It will also help potential providers understand the nature and scope of your intended project, allowing them to demonstrate that they meet your requirements and how they've helped other organizations accomplish similar goals.
