Any consultant worth their PowerPoint can tell you to leverage synergies, scale workflows, and reengineer processes. But if you want fast, real-world results you have to start with the easy wins.
If you’re using bank cards for employee and back office spending, you’d be hard pressed to find an easier win than PEX.
PEX customers report greater control over spending, 97% improvements in financial department efficiency, and huge cost savings. All without upending their business to implement a gaggle of buzzwords.
