CHICAGO, June 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TravelPerk, the largest global business travel management platform, announced today a new partnership with Divvy, the leading spend and expense management platform to bring the best business travel and expense management experience on the planet. Through the collaboration, TravelPerk becomes Divvy's primary travel partner, providing employees of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) with a simpler way to book, manage, and pay for what they need when travelling for work, while also giving finance teams a central place to control, manage, and track spend.
As their teams begin traveling again, SMBs cannot afford to lose time and money due to employees booking out-of-policy work trips, exceeding spending limits, or incorrectly filing expenses. Additionally, utilizing leisure travel sites for business purposes results in poor visibility for finance teams monitoring travel spend and expenses.
Divvy Travel, powered by TravelPerk, addresses this problem and solves many challenges SMBs face in the current travel experience, including significant amounts of lost time and money, and lack of transparency into business expenditures.
Divvy Travel benefits include:
- A simplified, central portal for employees to easily book and manage travel - from booking to expensing
- Exceptional visibility and control for finance teams across all business spending
- Saved time and money for all employees - from travelers to managers to finance teams
The partnership comes at a time when businesses are opening back up and need to be positioned to grow, while staying on budget. Divvy and TravelPerk have both navigated the COVID-19 landscape in innovative ways, doubling down on their commitment to small- and medium-sized businesses. Both Divvy and TravelPerk are confident that SMBs will be an engine of economic recovery because of their size and agility.
Starting today, Divvy's U.S. business clients can enjoy full access to the TravelPerk platform, which offers the world's largest flight, hotel, and ground transportation inventory, 24/7 customer support, and a fast and reliable reporting system. They will also gain access to TravelPerk's innovative range of products and services, including TravelCare and FlexiPerk, to help their employees navigate travelling post-Covid-19. TravelPerk Premium and Pro customers will also have access to Divvy's free spend management solution, simplifying the process of business travel expense reports.
