Business-travel gamechanger: Expensify partners with travel companies like Uber, Airbnb and Priceline

Expensify

Expensify, the world’s fastest growing business expense management company, has announced an all-star lineup of new travel partnerships that will completely transform the user experience.

Uber, Priceline, Hipmunk, Rocket Trip, NuTravel, Egencia, Locomote, and NexTravel were announced as new seamless partners, with Airbnb, GetThere, Amadeus, and AtlasTravel soon to follow.

Expensify’s new deeper integration with both sharing economy juggernauts and travel-booking sites alike is being launched in conjunction with a new business travel platform that completely automates the Expensify process. Previously, users scanned and emailed snapshots of receipts to an Expensify address. That system is a thing of the past now, with transactions with these new partners seamlessly registering with Expensify.

Expensify CEO David Barrett:

“Expense management is the Rosetta Stone of business travel. 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.

This announcement comes hot on the heels of a similar business travel portal upgrade from one of Expensify’s new partners, Airbnb. The San Francisco-based company this week reported a 700% year-over-year increase in business travel bookings through the site, and announced a slew of partners of their own including Google and SoundCloud.

Expensify’s fast tracking of their Airbnb integration makes perfect sense, given the recently revealed booming business travel happening on the site.

Business travel efficiency aficionado NexTravel was announced as a preferred partner today as well. The new chums will “bring a seamless, affordable travel and expense solution to the SMB market,” said NexTravel co-founder Wen-Wen Lam.
