Automating spend management for the manufacturing sector

Digital technology has revolutionised the way small and large manufacturers operate – from textiles and electronics, to engineering and pharmaceuticals. With automation like production cycle optimisation and advanced robotic solutions, digital solutions have transformed production processes within the manufacturing sector.

Yet many businesses still rely on manual spend and expense management methods, like reimbursements, petty cash, or credit cards, that slow teams down and don’t give finance teams full visibility or control.

Soldo offers a more flexible, automated alternative to help the manufacturing sector track and manage their spending and expenses.

Simplify travel expense management

From the installation and maintenance of machinery to conferences and client meetings, business travel is essential to the manufacturing sector. But keeping track of every transaction isn’t easy, and managing mileage reimbursement, the cost of car rentals, purchasing plane tickets, and paying for hotel stays can be a slow and complicated process – especially using traditional management methods like reimbursements or credit cards.

With Soldo, you can give your employees and teams smart cards that connect to an expenses app that records every transaction made at the point of purchase, in real-time. That means, no more lengthy expense reports. Employees simply make their purchase, then snap a photo of their receipt and add notes in just a few clicks.

Get full visibility of every payment

Spending come in many forms, whether that’s staff training, production, or transportation costs. Ensuring that every purchase or expense is within budget and is managed correctly and transparently is essential, but not always guaranteed.

Soldo gives your employees and finance team a digital platform to manage every expense and business purchase. With smart cards, an expenses app, web console, and accounting integrations, managing costs is quicker and more centralised. So, it’s easier to keep company spending under control.

Take control with spend limits

When different employees are paying out of pocket, and different department heads are signing off spending, it’s difficult to keep control of exactly who’s spending what, when and where. That makes it easy to go over budget and hard to check everything is a legitimate purchase.

Using Soldo’s web console, you can view all your spending and expenses in real time, assign spending limits to different individuals or teams, use wallets to set funds aside for teams or projects, assign funds in different currencies, and download detailed statements and reports for each card.
