Palo Alto, CA

TripActions LiquidTM is an expense and corporate card solution that eliminates the hassles of expense management while giving finance leaders real-time spend visibility and control. TripActions Liquid provides employees with a refreshingly easy way to pay for what they need while giving finance leaders one easy place to control, manage, and track spend. With physical and virtual cards, smart policy management, and automated expense reports, TripActions Liquid streamlines the entire business spending process — driving cost-savings, productivity, and compliance.

 

In October 2021, TripActions announced its Series F funding of $275M at a post-money upround valuation of $7.25B to help accelerate future growth plans.
