    Nice blog Benno, it is amazing how far the solution has come in just a few years.  In my opinion it is already the most comprehensive travel and expense management system available for upper mid and large enterprises!

      Hi Prasad,

      Cloud for Travel and Expense is an end-to-end Travel and Expense Management system.

      It includes as well capabilities like OCR, Integrating with Online Booking Partners or out-of-the-box integration to SAP ERP. But all these functions are integral part of Cloud for Travel and Expense and not sold as separate moduls.

      But we have other Cloud solutions like Cloud for Customer – Cloud CRM, HCM, ByDesign ERP-Suite in the Cloud and more

      Find the overview here: http://www.sap.com/pc/tech/cloud/software/overview/index.html

      Hi Pradyp,

      my pleasure.

      Not sure If I got your question completly. Are you refering to initially fill the new system with mass master data?

      If yes there are at least two answers:

      – Some masterdata comes from the integration to the ERP-System, not only initially but constantly refreshed

      – We have tools for our customers to upload data to the system

      With the HTML5-Interface you only need an up-to-date browser to use Cloud for Travel and Expense.

      Best

      Benno
