Sample text

For example, an accounting department can benefit greatly at period-end if the warehouse is using cycle counting to keep inventory accuracy levels high, since there is no need for a physical inventory count. However, if the warehouse does not have the extra staff available to count inventory, the work will not be done, no matter how badly the accounting staff wants to implement this best practice.  Too many changes in a short time. An organization will rebel against too much change if it is clustered into a short time frame.

Instead, each department is given its own ghost card number, with which it can make a variety of purchases that will be charged back to that department. By centralizing such purchases with a single account number, payment processing is made considerably easier. Also, since the company is directly responsible for all purchases made with the ghost card, it will be billed by the card provider in a timely and predictable manner (as opposed to the use of personal cards, where expenses may not appear until several months later).

Fewer invoice reviews and signatures. Managers no longer have to review a considerable number of invoices for payment approval, nor do they have to sign so many checks addressed to suppliers.  No cash advances. Whenever an employee asks for a cash advance, the accounting staff must create a manual check for that person, record it in the accounting records, and ensure that it is paid back by the employee. This can be a very time-consuming process in proportion to the generally meager advances given to employees.
