Corporate environments that allow employees to claim back mobile expenses normally have an additional administration overhead to process these claims. Not only that, reports have shown how employees want to bring in their own devices, but still have the company responsible for business-related expenses made on these devices.
These kinds of claims not only eat into budgets managed by CIOs, but there is a tussle between IT and finance in who carries the administrative overhead for claims processing.

Nebula’s Integrated Mobile Management Services (IMMS) contains a BYOD Business Expense and Reimbursement Management System that streamlines and simplifies expense claims, thanks to these features:
- A web-based user portal that allows employees to import their call detail records, classify business and personal numbers, view summaries of their usage and electronically submit claims
- The system automates approval of business numbers to line managers, with a full audit trail
- Automatic submission and preparation for financial and payroll processing, dramatically reducing manual administration of claims
Combined with this, IMMS has cost control for corporate-owned SIMs where the deployment model is a part-payment system. This allows a full, 360-degree view of mobile costs, even with a BYOD deployment.
