“For us, as a smaller business, TripActions is absolutely worth the investment. I can’t imagine going back to what we did before,” explained Shellie Roanhaus, executive assistant to the CEO of Premier Talent Partners.

The San Francisco-based staffing company was previously using consumer travel websites to book travel, American Express as its corporate card, and Expensify as its expense management tool. Reporting was delayed, the annual fees were adding up, and the process was time-consuming. Roanhaus was spending 5–10 hours per week managing travel for the company’s 68 employees.

As the workforce went remote due to the pandemic, the company needed a new—and scalable—solution. They made the switch to TripActions and have since seen:

  • 11% net savings on all bookings
  • 21% savings on hotels
  • 100% platform adoption
  • Exponential time savings on travel management

“We’ve reached the point where all of our employees across the country can book their own travel,” said Roanhaus. “I can’t see why we’d ever go back to having a human do all that manual work.”

The company also earns 1% back when using the TripActions Liquid corporate card on travel, monthly bills, utilities, and advertising costs. “Having an all-in-one travel and expense solution where we can earn 1% back on all of our spend is huge for us,” said Roanhaus, adding that the company has received more than $10,000 back from the TripActions corporate card rebate in the past year alone.
