Fintech Brex Introduces Integrated Travel Solution

Brex recently announced Brex travel, a premium travel management experience that delivers comprehensive booking and management capabilities, all in the Brex dashboard and mobile app, “with unbiased global inventory, self-service trip changes, and 24/7 agent support.”

With the addition of travel, Brex is “extending Empower to provide the first, all-in-one global system that integrates card, expense management and travel in one app.”

Brex has partnered with Spotnana, “to build its travel capabilities from the ground up on top of Spotnana’s modern, cloud-based Travel-as-a-Service platform.”

Empower was designed “to address the needs of companies as they grow, from startups through enterprise-level companies.”

With business travel picking up, modern companies “need an effective solution to manage global travel end-to-end.”

Brex delivers “an integrated experience providing employees with a self-serve solution to book and manage trips.”

Automated receipt capture and approvals “drive higher compliance and real-time visibility for finance teams.” Live budgets allow them “to proactively provision and track spend in real time to keep everyone accountable, within policy and on budget.”

With Brex Empower’s integrated card, spend and travel management system, finance teams can “create budgets and policies to manage travel across the entire company.”

Brex travel enables finance teams “to roll out customized travel budgets across an organization, enabling individuals and teams to book travel compliant with spend policies.”

When all trip expenses are “managed in the same budget, there is real-time visibility into how spend is trending, giving leaders the ability to manage travel spend proactively, putting travel dollars to where they have the most impact.”

Brex travel delivers “a consumer-grade booking experience, with an unbiased global inventory that provides employees with the most comprehensive choices and gives companies access to preferred rates.”

This reduces the need “to book travel outside of the system, increasing adoption and improving policy compliance.”

With automatic approval of expenses that are in policy, managers can “focus only on the exceptions while employees book their flights, swipe their card at restaurants, and check out from the hotel.” And, a modern UI and easy-to-use mobile app “increases employee adoption, helping keep travel in policy and in budget.”

Henrique Dubugras, Co-Founder and co-CEO of Brex, said:

“Most employees find it hard to comply because they don’t know what the policy is, and it takes a lot of effort to collect receipts and memos for every purchase. With Brex travel, you can easily see the right policy on the mobile app at the time of booking, and we automate receipt collection, memos and approvals on trips.”

Jeff Cullinane, Vice President of Strategy, Integration, & PMO at Satellite Healthcare, said:

“Our previous solution was clunky and slow. Brex’s easy-to-use platform takes the hassle out of booking business travel with built-in controls to ensure total compliance. The difference has been night-and-day.”

As a truly global solution, employees can “book travel to anywhere in the world and access 24/7 customer support wherever they are.”

Brex’s travel inventory is reportedly “unbiased and not impacted by commissions, a common practice in the business travel industry.”

Brex travel increases trust and adoption by “providing the most comprehensive inventory and range of choices to a business traveler — including global distribution system (GDS) fares, direct API integrations with airlines, basic economy seats, local and low-cost airlines (often left out of most travel systems), as well as hotels and car rentals in all major countries.”

Sarosh Waghmar, Founder and CEO of Spotnana, said:

“Brex is an innovator that shares our passion for delivering superior customer experiences.We are excited to partner with Brex and provide the core travel infrastructure that enables them to expand the Empower platform and create an end-to-end travel and expense solution.”

Brex travel builds on the momentum of the Empower platform.

Since launching in 2022, Empower has “experienced rapid growth, onboarding hundreds of thousands of employees globally and adding hundreds of new capabilities and integrations.”

Empower is “supported in more than 100 countries and used by companies like DoorDash, Coinbase, Indeed, Superhuman, SeatGeek, Built Technologies, and Scale AI to manage their global spend on one platform.”

Travel customers on Empower “include GoGuardian, Miso Robotics, FMX, Satellite Healthcare, and more.”
