Deem Makes Best of Breed Travel Booking and Expense Reporting a Seamless End-to-End Process
New APIs Enable Integration of Deem Booking Software with Leading Expense Tools
San Francisco, Calif., May 4, 2017 – Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, launched Deem Open Expense today, an API framework that integrates Deem’s Work Fource business travel platform with the industry’s leading expense reporting tools.
“Our aim is to modernize business travel and eliminate the headaches and hassles of conventional travel software,” said John F. Rizzo, President and Chief Operating Officer, Deem. “This is another important step in that direction. By integrating Deem Work Fource with best-of-breed expense reporting solutions, companies can make travel booking, expensing and management an automatic and touchless process.”
Integrating systems improves travel expense management for both business travelers and their employers. As travelers book flights, hotels and services using Work Fource, expenses automatically flow into the expense reporting software. This saves users the time it takes to enter expenses manually and allows corporate travel managers to review and manage expenditures proactively before the trip is taken – giving them better control over travel spending.
“Open Expense integrations aren’t limited to one-way information flow,” said Chethan Visweswar, Senior Vice President, Software, Deem. “They can be bidirectional, enabling policy information to be pulled from the expense system into Deem’s travel software. This ensures that employees follow company spending guidelines when booking trips.”
“We just completed the integration with Chrome River, a leader in the expense management industry, and we’re in conversation with several other providers,” said Rizzo.
Deem’s newly released Work Fource, is a next-generation business travel management platform that uses advanced technologies to provide optimized solutions for travelers, corporate travel managers, travel management companies and suppliers. Deem Work Fource brings beautiful design, machine learning and customization together to provide the business travel ecosystem with a dynamic and seamless platform – all the way from shopping and booking to applying policy and managing costs.
