STOCKHOLM, September 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

For many years, the Absolut Company, maker of one of the world's leading spirit brands, has entrusted its travel administration in Sweden to eBuilder's standard Travel and Expense Management Cloud Process. Now, with the opening of Absolut's new sales office in London, Absolut is rolling out the Expense Management functionality of eBuilder's Travel and Expense Management in the UK.

Currently, eBuilder Travel and Expense Management provides automation, visibility, and control of travel and expense administration for administrators and travelers in Sweden via a web-based interface that is available anywhere, anytime. And if the Absolut Company needs travel administration assistance in other offices, they, too, can enjoy the benefits of Travel and Expense Management's single point of administration.

The Travel and Expense Management Cloud Process connects approved travel providers into a single integrated network. It ensures that travel services are booked only with company-sanctioned providers and that all charges are in line with the contracts between the company and the travel providers.

Travel and Expense Management automatically provides the travel providers in the network with up-to-date company and personal profile information. Providers use the same current, correct information to make the requested travel arrangements, which conform to the traveler's preferences and which are booked correctly in the company's back-office systems.

The Cloud Process's Expense Management functions assemble all trip-related transactions, expense reports, and travel account invoices under one trip identification number from the time the trip is booked until the final invoice is paid. This provides complete traceability for every trip and its related transactions, expenses, and costs. At the aggregate level, managers get visibility into travel costs, which helps to keep travel spending within the existing budget(s) and provides accurate data with which to plan future budgets.

The Absolut Company continues to grow as one of the world's leading spirit companies, gaining traction from its innovative campaigns that fuse art, advertising, and a challenge to do things differently. And eBuilder, with its innovative solutions based on integration, collaboration, and automation, is proud to be able to help companies such as the Absolut Company streamline business processes so they can devote more resources to achieving their vision.
