Next-gen expense tools to help your finance team achieve more
It's Time to Rethink Your Expense Process
Your expense process? If you're like a lot of people we've talked to, you understand that your expense process isn't perfect—but it seems manageable for now. After all, you have higher priorities and more urgent projects to tackle.
At Center, we've observed that inefficiencies in expense processing actually keep teams from working on those higher priorities. What if you could spend less time processing expenses and more time analyzing your spend?
Center believes now is the time to transform the expense process for three key reasons:
No matter what system you use today, expense processing takes too much time.
Card spend is growing, and very little of that spend is managed efficiently.
Your company counts on you to maximize return on every dollar spent.
Center's next-gen spend and expense solutions use real-time data to streamline processing and surface powerful insights.
Finance at the Center
Center is a technology company with deep roots in the world of corporate finance. As we work alongside controllers and accountants to improve financial operations, we often see teams using software that creates more work, not less.
We think your software should work harder for you. At Center, we bring together real-time spend data, AI and ML, streamlined workflows, and data analytics to create solutions that simplify the entire expense process, for everyone from the office manager to the exec team.
Most of all, we want to deliver tools designed with finance at the center. While we’re starting with the spend and expense cycle, we believe the basic SpendOps premise—streamlining operations so you can optimize spend—applies to a range of financial operations. We look forward to continued collaborations with innovative financial teams like yours.
The Center Difference

Let's face it: Expense reports are expensive and inefficient. Center SpendOps makes submitting and managing expenses practically effortless.
Truly Focused on Finance
Traditional expense software creates time-consuming busywork for the finance team. Center's finance-focused solutions minimize manual processing time to maximize impact.
One Tool, Start to Finish
Managing expenses well usually requires multiple tools: expense reporting software, corporate card and p-card feeds, audit tools, spreadsheets, GL, and reporting. Simplify with Center SpendOps Suite.
Modern AI/ML Architecture
If you're just digitizing traditional paper-based processes, as most of today's tools do, the best you can hope for is a system of record. Center's smart use of AI and ML transforms expense management into a dynamic system of intelligence.
Simple to Setup, Easy to Use
Get started quickly with Center SpendOps Suite. Implementation is quick, and ongoing administration such as adding or deleting cardholders, updating workflows, or creating custom flags, is easy.
Expect More from Your Expense Software
Most companies just manage expenses. Achieve more with the Center SpendOps Suite, the complete AI-powered spend and expense solution created especially for growing companies.
Better Spend Operations Matter
Processing expenses is time-consuming, whether it involves spreadsheets, software, bank tools, or a combination of all three. With multiple inputs, expense reports are prone to error and require additional review in finance, not to mention manual audits, accruals, and GL coding. Improving spend operations saves time, increases data accuracy, and shortens time to close, which means your company can make decisions faster.
The time crunch: Most finance teams spend the bulk of their time on operational tasks—up to 70%. That's often low-impact work like chasing down receipts and manually coding line items to the GL.
Rebalancing the Equation
The solution: Adopting a SpendOps approach with AI-powered technology streamlines the expense process and frees up valuable resources for higher impact projects.
Today's Card Spend: Growing but Unmanaged
Managing Card Spend Is More Important than Ever
You have systems in place for payroll and invoices, but what about card spending? More and more company spend is moving to cards, and only a portion is managed through your current expense system. The rest is reconciled manually, which adds hours to month-end close.
Stop Struggling. Take Charge.
For many companies, managing card spend feels like an impossible task. It can be frustrating, time-consuming, and resource-intensive. But card spend for business purchasing is here to stay, and rather than accepting struggle as the status quo, it’s time to take control.
Maximize Your Budget
You have a fiduciary responsibility to the company, its investors, and employees. When the economy is strong, you want to be a good steward of resources. When budgets get tight, the company will look to you for savings.
Hitting Targets Always Matters
Travel and indirect procurement, which can account for 20% more of your company's annual budget, are natural targets for optimizing spend.
But few finance teams have the bandwidth, the systems, or the data they need for in-depth analysis and proactive optimization.
