LOCOMOTE TEAMS UP WITH EXPENSIFY

TRAVEL tech company Locomote has partnered with expense management platform Expensify to simplify business travel and make it more efficient.

The partnership is expected to save the Melbourne-based company's customers up to 35 per cent in costs, by integrating the tools needed to plan and book business trips.

Expensify's SmartScan feature syncs information on receipts with Locomotive, including authorisations, duty of care, budgets and expenses.

Employee travel transactions are then compiled into a report based on itinerary dates, which can be integrated into an accounting system.

Expensify CEO David Barrett says the partnership with Locomote will deliver a leading expense solution to the corporate market.

"Together, we are giving companies a holistic view of their business travel and the true cost of each trip," Barrett says.

"Locomote is a unique solution with a solid infrastructure. They have the product knowledge and expertise which allowed us to ramp up efforts and hit the market hard and at speed."

The partnership follows Locomote's strategic growth in the last 12 months, after securing contracts with ANZ, Allen & Overy, Medibank and World Vision.

Locomote CEO and executive chairman Philip Weinman says both companies share a vision to transform the travel and expense industry.
