Manual entering of Data-80% of T&E management systems relies on manually entered data. This is time-consuming as well as error-prone.

Many of the firms are not able to import and integrate data coming from disparate sources. For these companies, T&E analytics is many times inaccurate.
TrackEx provides integration with other sources and 3rd party systems and other applications like accounting, tax prep, or ERP software as well.
Real-time view of data-
The majority of T&E systems do not provide a real-time view of T&E spending. They lack the capabilities to process invoices.
TrackEx provides access to consolidated data in real-time view.
Some of the existing T&E systems having all the abilities lack the ability to create and modify reports easily because of the absence of mobile capabilities.
TrackEx provides mobile accessibility which makes accessing and analyzing reports quick and smooth using mobiles phones.
In some of the firms, the employee reimbursements are delayed which causes money management problems for employees.
TrackEx makes conclusions based on real data and reimburses employees more quickly by streamlining the expense report for everyone.
