investment professionals. How would TripsWare be cost-effective
Smaller firms have an even greater need to leverage back office
technology. The time saved by submitting reports electronically,
importing the expense items to your GL, and generating invoicing
automatically more than offsets the cost of our service.
Some systems we've
looked at seem complicated. Is TripsWare easy to use?
Absolutely! We have optimized the interface and workflow to bring
all the salient features and functions applicable for financial
firms to the forefront. That means that users don't have to click
through or drill down to screens that may not even be relevant.
We even have an Expense Reporting Wizard to guide users effortlessly
through the report submission process.
Can employees use
TripsWare outside the office?
TripsWare is an online solution that is secure, reliable, and
accessible in real time from anywhere. All you need is an Internet
connection and a Browser. Perfect for supporting remote users
(or designated assistants) who submit reports from satellite or
home offices while enabling the main office to have real time
access to these reports.
Can we upload credit
card data to TripsWare?
TripsWare integrates seamlessly and securely with credit card
carriers, eliminating errors and the need to retype expenses.
Simply import your electronic credit card statement directly into
TripsWare. You'll not only save time, but gain access to additional
information that may not appear on a hard copy statement such
as Dates traveled, Airline & Hotel details, Reservation #'s
Does TripsWare integrate
with GL Accounting Systems?
Yes, we integrate with most accounting systems including QuickBooks,
Great Plains, and Peachtree.
How do we edit and
update our company information in TripsWare?
You maintain your records and accounting information in TripsWare.
Simply Add or Edit any list items yourself in real time including
deal names, portfolio companies, categories, GL Codes and Employees.
This ensures expense reports are submitted with the correct information
for immediate integration to your accounting system.
We need to book to
accounts other than just expense categories. Can TripsWare automate
more complicated accounting procedures?
That's our specialty. We work with you to document your requirements
and design a customized integration procedure to import expense
data according to your accounting rules. We will also make recommendations
to optimize your GL set up and improve your ability to track expenses.
Would we have to
change our internal accounting procedures in order to implement
No, we can seamlessly integrate TripsWare to existing processes
and policies. There's no need to change general ledger codes,
names, procedures etc. Of course, we are willing and able to share
best business practices with you if you would like to update any
policies or need advice on migrating from a legacy system.
We'd like to start
tracking and invoicing for our portfolio company expenses. How
can TripsWare help us with this?
Expenses incurred while performing due diligence and managing
portfolio companies can be substantial. We capture your data from
all sources in one centralized system, giving you real time insight
into who is spending what and where. Find out at a glance what
your potential receivables are and the hard dollar costs of fundraising,
sourcing deals and managing projects. Then use our built-in invoicing
module to generate customized invoices in seconds, expediting
the recovery of expenses from portfolio companies, partnerships
or closing deal fees.
How long does it
take to roll out TripsWare?
