Implementing any part of eProcurement or any major change is a challenge. To succeed, you really need to communicate how individuals will benefit from the change.

Unfortunately, when asking folks to record receipts, there is simply not very much benefit that users will derive from recording receipts. So it is an uphill battle.

Going to 2-way match is a classic example of thinking outside the box and challenging those people who say “You can’t do THAT!” And it works.

A little creativity and a lot of persistence can get you far with these types of initiatives. I wish you the best of luck on your next change management initiative!
