Aaaah, yes — those geniuses at SAP Global. Since they had jumped onto the mobile app bandwagon for businesses, things have been quite peachy for the heavy hitters, Android and iPhone/iPad. Particularly for mobile businesses — entrepreneurs constantly on the move — the app from SAP (rhymes) called the Travel Expense Report brings a kind off convenience unheard of.
How so? Here’s what you can expect of this remarkable app:
What Makes the Travel Expense Report From SAP so Stunnning
Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5 stars
Simply basic function. Something most entrepreneurs take for granted but never realize how important it is to hold dear. As efficient as every auto attendant and call center can be, it’s plainly obvious that an entrepreneur can go green with envy when the pinnacle of effectiveness and accuracy simply falls short for the fallible man.
I’m, of course, talking about logging in hours! Counting miles! Dear God, how much of a pain that is for an entrepreneur. Imagine having to drive millions of miles every year and then losing the darn scrap paper with all your counts, not giving it to your tax guy. The tax guy then shakes his head sorrowfully — like when a dentist finds a few hundred cavities in your mouth and gives you the naughty finger.
Well, it’s this app, the Travel Expense Report (I know, long title for an app), that can make it a real breeze for the entrepreneur.
Like SAP’s regular software, the SAP Travel Management, this is a tiny little app that can do a number of things:
- Online Booking
- Logging Travel Expenses
Obviously, the mobile app’s designed for an on-the-go mentality. Simply input in everything as if it were a text, so to speak, and that’s it. It’s been logged. You’ll know where it all is with a flick of a touch screen. Pretty handy.
Now all you got to do is make sure you never lose your smartphone….
Anything Bad About This App?
No, not really.
I can only say that this is a very specific app designed for a specific purpose. Not every small business will find it handy. It touches on an aspect of small business that really hasn’t been explored: travel management.
That could provide new ground for the world of mobile apps; but all in all, if you don’t need to worry about travel expenses, don’t waste your time with the SAP Travel Expense Report.
On the other hand, in general small businesses do some sort of travel — whether it’s in city or in state or in country, or even out of the country. So this is an app that can touch on a large demographic.
I’d say give it a shot if you’re a small business doing some travel here and there. When it comes to small business, you need all the tax help you can get, honestly.
