Answers to Your P-Card Webinar Questions

March 3, 2016

We recently hosted a webinar to discuss how to easily monitor an organization’s purchasing or credit card usage using our P-Card monitoring solution. Hugely attended, this lively webinar led to a series of thoughtful questions from our audience that we’re excited to share with you. Here are the highlights:

Q: How long does it take to create the queries and graphs?   

A: The queries and graphs take seconds to populate. You simply select what analysis you want done and the graphs are generated immediately.

Q: Can you provide a list of all possible tests that can run with the application?

A: The application can run a very wide range of tests. Some of the most popular P-Card tests look at:

  • Duplicate payments through AP and/or T&E
  • Duplicate transactions (same day, merchant or amount)
  • Even dollar amounts
  • Non-preferred vendor spend
  • Card used at unauthorized merchant
  • Employees with multiple cards
  • Open cards with non-active employees
  • Personal purchases
  • Card limit exceeded
  • Unusual increase in cardholder’s average spend

Q: What happens when an outlier or exception is identified?

A: The solution includes standard resolution guidelines to help users resolve the generated alerts/exceptions. In addition, during implementation we work with you to determine if there are other corporate guidelines unique to your process that should be added.

Q: Is the solution ready to install and run?

A: Yes, we sell the solution ready to install and run. We also offer the option to customize the solution based on your organization’s needs.

Q: Do I install the solution on my computer or is it cloud-based?

A: The solution can be installed on premise or accessed via the cloud, whichever you prefer.

Q: Does the software you use to analyze the data provide the reporting graphs or is the reporting done in a separate software program?

A: All of the analysis, reports and graphs are done within a single platform. The solution includes interactive charts and graphs that allow users to drill down to the exception details.
