Expensify and Airplus announce partnership for travel booking automation

24 Jul 2017

Expense reporting software Expensify has partnered with business travel payment solution provider AirPlus to bring customers around the world an automated travel booking process.

With the Expensify-AirPlus integration, being an employee on-the-go has never been easier.

From the moment users book business travel with their AirPlus Company Account to the time reports are reviewed for reconciliation in Expensify, users are now able to complete the entire travel expense process in just a few clicks.

Admins assign AirPlus cards in Expensify and the transactions flow directly into employees accounts, merging automatically with corresponding receipts and booking confirmations.

This transaction data will then be reconciled on a monthly statement report and imported directly into companies’ preferred accounting solutions.

“At Expensify, we’re constantly looking for new ways to simplify business travel for employees, which is why we’re thrilled to be partnering with the team at AirPlus,” says Tom Rhys Jones, Expensify EMEA business development head.

“This integration allows for complete automation - from travel programme management in AirPlus to reconciling company card expenditure with your chosen accounting solution in Expensify.

“We’re excited to offer businesses worldwide the best end-to-end experience on the market with this integration.”

Both Expensify and AirPlus agree that the last thing road warriors want to deal with at the end of a long business trip is reconciling their travel expenses.

This integration enhances both the experience for employees booking their trips, and for admins reviewing employee’s reports while offering transparent insight into every cost involved with each business trip.

“We’re very excited to be partnering with Expensify,” says Jayesh Patel, AirPlus UK and Ireland sales account management head.

“This global strategic partnership powers our combined mission of providing technology-driven solutions to business travellers around the world.

“AirPlus is proven to save 25% on travel and processing costs,” Patel says.

“In addition to Expensify saving employees at least 83% of time spent on expense reports, that’s a whole lot of time saved for business travellers, travel managers, and everyone in between.”

Founded in 2008, Expensify now serves over 5 million users globally.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Expensify continues to expand with offices from London to Melbourne.
