7. Invest in expense tracking software.
One reason cost creep occurs is poor record keeping. But there are so many software options to automate these processes to give you a better handle on your business expenses. Options such as Expensify and Divvy enable you to monitor the expenses your employees are incurring in real time, approve them automatically, and set predetermined maximums. Plus your books are easy to keep up with when the software records everything.
Run your transaction report every week.
Make cost management a consistent practice. Designate a particular day to review your transaction report each week. As the business owner, you should be able to identify any discrepancies and ensure you’re only paying for services you need.
Your goal should be to cultivate a culture of fiscal responsibility at every level of your company—moving from reactive decision-making to proactive strategy. As a result, you’ll harness better control over your business and develop a growth mindset.
