In any organization, employees are faced with costs that they incur during the performance of their functions and / or duties. This happens in organisations of any size and across all industry sectors. And it happens throughout the organisation, whether trying to get new business deals (e.g. sales staff), implementing sold products (e.g. service engineers) or supporting existing customers (e.g. consultants etc). To name but a few. The employees pay these expenses out of pocket (cash), with their personal bank or credit card or with company issued credit cards, vouchers or cash advances.
Currently (as of start 2014) no dedicated application is available in OFBiz that can be used by any employee (or even sub contractor) to register online the expenses incurred and have these reviewed for approval by an appropriate, other organisation member. And reimbursed.
