PALO ALTO, CA, and NEW YORK, NY, June 25, 2019TripActions, the fastest-growing business travel platform trusted by the world’s most innovative companies, and Namely, a leading HR platform for mid-sized companies, announced they have partnered to enable clients to quickly and easily connect their employee data from Namely into TripActions to simplify onboarding for business travel. Available immediately, the integration streamlines travel policy management and approvals for global HR leaders and travel managers, empowering organizations to deliver an exceptional booking and travel experience for road warriors to drive company culture and growth.

“By seamlessly connecting our best-in-class travel management and HR platforms, we’ve solved what used to be a big headache for our finance and HR teams,” said Lisa Schulz, corporate controller at Jobvite. “Rather than manually updating employee information in our travel system to make sure policies and approval structures stay current, TripActions and Namely do all of the provisioning and deprovisioning work for us behind the scenes. We simply set up our travel program preferences and rest assured that employee data is always synced."

A Few Clicks to Seamless Integration This partnership ensures that companies can maximize their investment in Namely’s human resources platform and further leverage the power of the TripActions corporate travel management platform to delight their employees. With a few clicks, administrators can set up the integration quickly, allowing the company’s employee data to automatically sync from Namely to TripActions. This enables role-based approvals and policy controls that simplify the process of booking travel.

Benefits of the integration include: * Automated user provisioning and deprovisioning to optimize the process of adding or removing traveler accounts and provide greater security and cost control; * Clean, accurate financial reporting; * Real-time visibility and control of teams’ travel budgets, all in one place; and * Integrated organizational structure data for role-based travel approvals and travel policy controls.

“At TripActions, our mission is to deliver the best experience in business travel by putting the user first, and we believe that experience starts even before the booking process begins,” said Rich Liu, chief revenue officer at TripActions. “By integrating our solution with Namely, HR professionals and travel leaders can eliminate the manual tasks that create friction and result in hidden costs to their organization. In addition, business travelers will be empowered with the information they need to make decisions that are pre-approved within travel policy, eliminating unnecessary back and forth.”

“TripActions and Namely have partnered to streamline a previously manual process, saving HR administrators time and eliminating the need to constantly update employee information within their travel system,” said Graham Younger, president and chief revenue officer, Namely. “Through our integration, the TripActions platform receives timely, accurate organizational data from Namely to ease travel bookings and policy compliance for our joint clients. Given the importance of business travel to the growth of mid-sized companies, this is a great way to support a strong, engaged company culture.”
