STOCKHOLM, October 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Scania has turned to eBuilder for help with streamlining and better coordinating their travel management and travel expense accounting. On March 26 this year, eBuilder's cloud-based solution was deployed to Scania's 30 companies in Sweden. Initially, the solution encompasses only travel cost accounting, but it will successively be broadened to improve the entire travel administration process.

"In our effort to streamline our cost accounting for travel and travel expenses, we came to the conclusion that eBuilder's Travel solution is a highly appropriate service for us. With the new service, all Scania employees can now promptly reconcile their expenditures while we obtain improved administration," says Birger Nagler, Head of Administration at Scania, and adds: "The company is currently working on expanding the service with more functions."

Unique advantages lead to significant savings

"We are proud to be able to help Scania boost the efficiency of their internal travel process and to contribute to cost savings this way," says Bengt Wallentin, eBuilder's CEO. With eBuilder's Travel and Expense Management solution, Scania achieves end-to-end control over the organization's travel processes. The most decisive advantage of eBuilder Travel is the system's ability to integrate the many participants in the customer's travel network. This can include thousands of collaborating companies such as airlines, railroads, hotel chains, car rental firms, credit card companies, banks, and tax authorities. These integrations, together with eBuilder's business logic, give the customer a highly optimized process that handles the employees' travel needs from booking to reimbursement.
