How does easyapIP relate employee expenses to the company accounting system?

 

One of the advantages of easyapIP is that the existing data for each note can be extracted in the necessary format, creating an accounting file that allows importation into the accounting system.  In this way eliminating task duplication that usually exists when the employee fills the data in the template and the later recording of the same in the accounting system. 

easyapIP is already working with many accounting systems, and we currently have the most common exporters/importers developed.

 

 

Is Training needed for the users of the employee expenses module?

The platform is designed to be intuitive and so training is divided into two points:

  • - Training courses specially for those people who are going to make a more intensive use of the platform...creating rules, admin security
  • - As it is a platform liable to be used by any employee of the company, and with the idea of transmitting knowledge of its use, a training module is included containing videos in which we explain how the platform works and how to operate each of the applications.  In this way each user can use the platform autonomously, without having a background in these tasks.
