Simplify business travel expenses with Ramp & Corporate Traveler

“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” - baseball great Yogi Berra.

Travel often includes a bit of the unexpected, and business travel is no different. Keeping business activities going while saving time and money is the goal. The unexpected can and will happen. That’s why for business travel, plans are good, but systems are better.

Managing business trip expenses is a delicate balance. You need a system that’s simple to use, keeps costs manageable, and can be flexible when travelers are in a jam. Then, business travelers can focus on their reason for travel and not stress about the details.

Corporate Traveler has experience with all kinds of business travel, and now we’re going the distance to make business travel easier and breezier for you. We’ve designed tools offering the ultimate solution for simplicity and efficiency with travel for business expenses.

Bundling up business travel expenses

No one likes extra admin work, especially on business trips. Managing business travel expenses takes much-needed time for internal departments and busy employees. Lost receipts, delayed reimbursements, and policy compliance are often common issues.

In a travel management program, some functions might go smoothly, while others, like expense management, are still a manual process or create an endless stream of emails.

Too much detail or too little can be an issue. Keeping track of all your business expenses like multiple policies, per diems, receipts, and accounting transactions creates an expenses nightmare.

So, how can we make it better, more intuitive and less of a headache?
