So far, 29 companies are partnered up to provide one-click expense capabilities
BOSTON, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Egencia®, the business travel arm of the Expedia group, demonstrates the success of its new expense management suite at the GBTA Convention in Boston with demos of its first fully-integrated global travel and expense solution with expense software provider, Chrome River.
In February 2017, Egencia announced plans to revolutionize the expense management space by solving user needs that were previously ignored by accounting-based solutions.
"Many of our customers have travelers using our solution around the globe. Working with Egencia allows us to extend the same great experience to all our customers throughout the travel booking and expense process, no matter where they are in the world," says Chrome River CEO, Alan Rich.
Also at the heart of the Egencia expense solution is the Egencia Open Connect Platform. As the name suggests, it is designed to open up the market to any expense provider by simplifying data transfers between partners. Today, along with Chrome River, 29 partners have signed up, including Microsoft, Coupa, MobileXpense, and Expensify.
"The difference between a good travel program and a great one is choice. We designed an open solution to let our customers choose the expense management tool they want. Then we improve on that by giving users access directly from the Egencia platform – turning the chore of filing expenses into a simple click of a button," explains Rob Greyber, president of Egencia. "The result is seamless. Users can have an expense system and a travel solution all in one place. The market reaction is very positive and we are happy that so many partners have joined us already."
Some of Egencia Connect Platform partners are:
Traveldoo® an Expedia, Inc. company
DIMO (Notilus & In-one)
