Emburse Recognized In 2023 TravelTech Breakthrough Awards Program With Expense Management Platform Of The Year

Prestigious annual awards program recognizes standout travel technology companies, products, and services around the world

LOS ANGELES AND PORTLAND, MAINE – May 18, 2023 – Emburse, the global leader in spend optimization, announced today that Emburse Spend was named “Expense Management Platform Of The Year” in the TravelTech Breakthrough Awards. The annual awards recognize the world’s best companies, products, and services in the travel and hospitality technology industry.

Emburse Spend simplifies expense management so business travelers can have the freedom and flexibility they want while finance teams can see and approve spend before it even happens. With it, companies can issue virtual cards that come with built-in controls and the ability to auto-reconcile.

“We are committed to offering user-friendly solutions that enhance the business travel experience, so I’m thrilled that Emburse Spend was recognized as the Expense Management Platform Of The Year by TravelTech Breakthrough,” said Eric Friedrichsen, CEO of Emburse. “With Emburse Spend, business travelers are empowered to purchase what they need without too much worry or extra work. Finance teams can also rest easy knowing there are pre-set budgets and controls around policies in place. There’s less waste plus the ability to make smarter, more timely decisions based on increased visibility, more effective control, and deep technology integrations.”

TravelTech Breakthrough is a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout travel technology companies, products, and services around the globe. The TravelTech Breakthrough Awards conducts a comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions, and products in the travel technology industry. This year’s inaugural program attracted more than 1,250 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.

“Booking work travel can be a nightmare. Especially if there are no company credit cards, so each person is having to pay on their own upfront, then has to follow the process for reimbursement. In these cases, companies have no visibility or insight into spend, and the best you can do is send over the company policy, hoping they’ll follow it and stay within their budgeted amount. Everything from budget tracking, cost control, compliance, and payment management becomes more complicated than it should be,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of TravelTech Breakthrough Awards. “Emburse Spend is the ideal solution for teams who want to automate expense reporting from start to finish while tracking multiple expense data points. Congratulations on being the recipient of the Expense Management Platform of the Year!”
