Corporate Traveler boosts payment and spend management offerings

Introducing the Ramp corporate card to help start-ups and mid-market businesses travel more and spend less

October 20, 2021 – Following the debut of Melon, Corporate Traveler’s game-changing proprietary platform last month, the company is expanding its customer offerings with a new corporate card partnership with Ramp. Initially available in the US, this latest initiative is the first step in providing an integrated end-to-end fintech solution that combines payment and expense management within Melon’s next-generation features. This new product is also a first of its kind partnership in the US market for both companies. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Ramp to provide an effective payment and spend management solution that complements the new Melon platform’s powerful capabilities and rich content. Together with our trademark personalized service, this means we can make our clients travel programs more efficient while offering their travelers an even better experience,” said Chris Lynes, Senior Vice President for Corporate Traveler in the US.

With international borders reopening and business travel on the rise, Lynes also acknowledges the challenges faced by budget-conscious clients, who are drawn from start-ups to mid-market companies: “We recognize that the world has changed, which for some, has created a more challenging trading environment that requires a helping hand to strengthen their finances as they continue to grow.”

With an emphasis on savings and efficiencies, the Ramp corporate card provides a robust suite of accounting-related benefits that will enable corporate clients to intelligently control and cut back on costs – removing some of the biggest pain points that hinder growth. 

"Companies have a hard time controlling business travel spend, enforcing per diems and actively keeping tracking of their receipts. We're thrilled to be partnering with Corporate Traveler to help companies easily pay for their travel expenses with automatic reconciliation and advanced cards. This will allow our shared clients of all sizes save countless hours and money," said Emily Jorgens - Head of Partnerships at Ramp. 

Ramp’s all-in-one payment and spend management system provides users with a host of features that goes beyond what a traditional credit card typically offers. From super-fast automated expense matching and reports to streamlined approvals processes and real-time spend visibility across any device, Ramp helps identify areas of wasteful spending and even embeds limits and restrictions directly into cards. A 1.5% cashback is offered on all spending, and unlike other corporate cards, it does not charge any replacement fees, and is 100% free.

In addition to using for travel payments, Corporate Traveler clients opting to sign up to the Ramp corporate card will be able to track and capture invoices for bookings made through the Melon platform. Month-end reconciling is also built in and settled at the end of each 30-day period. For more details and to apply, visit: https://ramp.com/partners/flight-centre
