New travel and expense management system launched for employees

A new travel and expense management system for Western Washington University, one of several Banner Initiative Projects, is now live.

The new system provides a Web interface that WWU travelers can use to complete and submit their travel authorization and travel reimbursement documents. It offers many benefits, including automated per diem calculations, automated expense code assignment and automatic approval routing to the proper supervisor and budgetary approver for the travelers’ request. The system is being implemented across campus in phases during the remainder of the 2013 calendar year. Travel Services and Financial Systems will work with departments during this transition to the new system to ensure customer satisfaction.
