the leader in real time expense reporting, today announced the launch of
Abacus Travel, its new travel booking platform. With Abacus Travel,
customers now have a fully integrated solution that combines
customizable travel booking controls with the power of real time expense
reporting. Abacus Travel is based on booking technology from NuTravel,
which was purchased in 2018 by Certify, Inc., parent company of Abacus
and the world’s largest independent expense management company. Abacus
Travel is the first significant product launch for the company since it
was acquired by Certify.
With Abacus Travel, an employee’s approved booking will immediately turn
into an expense within Abacus’ real time expense reporting software.

Business Travelers Get Automated Travel Booking and Expense Reporting
Travel offers a simple user interface in which employees can book a
business trip in just a few clicks. Once their travel is booked, the
itinerary is created as an expense in Abacus, where the Trips feature
keeps track of all travel-related expenses in one dashboard. This makes
it easier for employees to reconcile their expenses at the end of a
trip, and for finance to monitor and approve employees’ travel costs in
real time. No expense report is needed; expenses are tagged and quickly
submitted. Employees are reimbursed as soon as the next day.
Finance Teams Gain Deeper Control and Insight into Corporate Travel
Finance teams can configure travel policies across
various levels of hierarchy, geography or business units and
automatically enforce them within Abacus Travel. Flight, hotel, car and
rail search results can be set to only show in policy travel options for
each traveler. Finance teams can also set travel bookings to
automatically pre-approve if they are completely within policy, or
require advanced approvals.
With the introduction of Abacus Travel, Insights, Abacus’ built-in
reporting tool, will now be powered by highly accurate, comprehensive
travel spending data, making it an even more strategic resource. With
just a few clicks, finance teams can see the complete picture of their
company’s travel spend, surfacing valuable takeaways such as the cost of
visiting certain clients or the most frequently used travel vendors.
