ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Expensify, the fastest growing expense management company worldwide with over 16,000 customers, launched an integrated travel and expense platform that makes business travel and travel management fast, easy and simple for both employees and employers. Expensify’s new travel platform integrates with travel industry leaders NuTravel, Egencia, Locomote, NexTravel, Uber, Priceline, Hipmunk and Rocket Trip. Integrations with GetThere, Amadeus, Atlas Travel, and AirBnB are also planned. Going forward Expensify users simply need to book their trips and the rest of the reporting process will be automated. This announcement takes place before Expensify exhibits for the first time at 2015 Global Business Travel Association Convention.
“These new corporate booking integrations will improve business travel management for both mid-market companies, as well as small businesses and individuals. Today, Expensify is proud to announce a preferred partnership with NexTravel to bring all the benefits of corporate travel to our small business customers”
“Expense management is the Rosetta Stone of business travel,” said David Barrett, founder and CEO of Expensify. “For far too long, travel management has been inefficient, inaccurate and inconvenient for business travelers and travel booking managers. That’s why Expensify is so excited to be integrating with a variety of best-in-breed travel partners. With these new partnerships, we are making the business travel experience easier for everyone. These features will provide for more accurate reporting on the complete cost of a trip and making the entire travel booking and expense report submittal process simpler for business travelers and travel managers.
Expensify’s customers range from the SMB to the Fortune 500. As such there are different partnerships and integrations in place to accommodate the different needs of the market. “These new corporate booking integrations will improve business travel management for both mid-market companies, as well as small businesses and individuals. Today, Expensify is proud to announce a preferred partnership with NexTravel to bring all the benefits of corporate travel to our small business customers,” explained Barrett.
“Traditionally, booking travel is a painful process, along with gathering and filing receipts for expense reports,” said Wen-Wen Lam, co-founder of NexTravel. “Today, NexTravel works with small to medium sized businesses to make planning and booking travel easier. Travel and Expense is the second largest controllable expense after payroll – a pain point shared by both SMBs and large companies. We’re excited to enter a preferred partnership with Expensify to bring a seamless, affordable travel and expense solution to the SMB market.”
Historically, Expensify users could forward travel receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org and Expensify would provide flight alert updates and automatic trip reporting. This new functionality automates the entire process.
