Expense Mileage Calculations Using Web Services

One of the most exciting new features in Version 4.6 of [email protected] and [email protected] is our support for Web Services.

Put simply, this enables our Expense Management and Time Recording solutions to interact with Web Service Providers over the internet.

The two most common uses for this technology in expense management (but by no means the only ones) would be to have an expense form automatically calculate the distance between two post codes or to automatically calculate the prevailing exchange rate between two currencies.

Web services enable users of [email protected] and [email protected] to save time and ensure accuracy in completing their forms and provides the finance department and compliance officers with the assurance that expense claims are being correctly completed.
