Travel and Expense Administration via the Cloud An efficient single source travel and expense management helps minimize overall corporate travel expenses and bring into use other alternative methods and processes via a web-based interface that is available anywhere, anytime. The Travel and Expense Management Cloud Process integrates approved travel providers into a single integrated network in which information (profiles, delivery notes, card and travel account transactions, and reimbursements to the traveler) is synchronized automatically between company’s’ back-office systems and the travel providers. This also ensures that travel services are always booked with company-sanctioned providers and that all charges are in line with the contract between the company and travel provider. Furthermore, Travel and Expense Management automatically provides the travel providers in the network with up-to-date company and personal profile information so providers use the same current, correct information to make the requested travel arrangements.
