Modern User Interface
WorkPlace 2018 boasts an intuitive, attractive, and easy to navigate user interface — allowing companies to onboard users more quickly and build higher user adoption rates.
New Mobile Requisitions Native App Capabilities
WorkPlace 2018 Mobile App now provides full requisition entry and approval functionality from a user’s mobile device. Users can browse and shop company Catalogs, request items for purchase, save items to cart, and submit items, as well as review, approve, reject requisitions, add attachments, and add comments from anywhere, anytime.
Payment Processing Capabilities
New Payment Processing Capabilities allow users to process Vendor and Employee payments securely, quickly, and directly from within the WorkPlace Spend Management solution, forming a robust, centralized P2P (Procure-to-Pay) platform.
Advanced Mobile App Integration with Google
Deeper integration with Google, including Google Maps adds a dedicated travel route App page that allows users to store frequently used travel routes and automatically calculate mileage from within the App, adding it seamlessly to their expense reports, using a pre-defined reimbursement rate. Reviewers can view and approve route data as part of the approval process.
“During design and development, the two main areas of my focus were the user interface and reporting metrics. We worked hard to go beyond offering a modern interface to making the UI so intuitive that any user, regardless of their skill level, can work through the entire procurement or expense cycle with confidence and ease. On the finance front, we focused on empowering everyone to see the big picture and think strategically with a 360° view of their KPIs all from one dashboard. By incorporating robust usability features and intuitive, easy- to-use capabilities, along with strong business controls and automated workflows, every team member is able to boost productivity and help minimize costs,” said Khensa Bangert, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
