Cost Tracker vs. Traditional Methods: Why Jira Cloud Users Should Make the Switch

Once you've meticulously planned your project budget, the real challenge begins: monitoring and adhering to it throughout the project lifecycle.

Unfortunately, traditional project expense tracking relies on a cumbersome manual process, often leaving project managers juggling spreadsheets and receipts.giphy.gif

Picture this: project managers submit their expenses to an assistant or input them into spreadsheets themselves. Each team member must diligently record their spending, update the spreadsheets, and keep track of receipts along the way. It's a laborious task, prone to errors and delays.

Recent findings from a Levvel study, emphasized by Kissflow, shed light on the struggles faced by businesses that have not embraced expense management automation:

1. Manual Entry and Routing of Expense Reports (62%): The manual nature of data entry and report routing can lead to inefficiencies, inaccuracies, and increased administrative burden.
2. Lack of Visibility into Spend Data (42%): Without real-time access to spend data, businesses are at a disadvantage when it comes to making informed decisions and optimizing budget allocation.
3. Inability to Enforce Travel Policies (29%): Ensuring compliance with travel policies becomes challenging without automation, leaving room for overspending and potential policy violations.
4. Lost Expense Reports (24%): Paper-based or manual systems increase the risk of misplaced or lost expense reports, causing delays in reimbursement and project bottlenecks.
5. Lengthy Expense Approval System and Reimbursement Cycles (23%): Manual approval processes can lead to prolonged cycles, impacting cash flow and hindering project progress.

As businesses strive for efficiency and accuracy, it's evident that the manual expense tracking approach falls short of meeting these objectives. Thankfully, there's a brighter and more efficient path ahead.
