Although he just started using American Express Co.’s travel and entertainment (T&E) benchmarking service in July, Dan Sundwall, leader for global business shared services at $5.7 billion Owens Corning, is pretty impressed. Sundwall and his staff track and enforce employee compliance with the company’s travel policies, overseeing some 6,000 T&E reimbursement reports filed each month.
