Microsoft Saves 1.2 Million Hours Annually with Emburse Go

Why | How | What

Microsoft highly values the contribution its road warriors make to the bottom line. By leveraging Emburse Go, they give their employees at least two hours back per trip to get back to what matters most.

When your employees are on the go, they need a mobile travel companion that makes their lives easier and helps guide them. Juggling multiple travel apps to piece together their itinerary manually is time-consuming and lowers productivity. Emburse Go gathers all of your travelers' reservations into a user-friendly companion app to create one single itinerary.

Emburse Go helps pre-trip planning with useful destination information, including health and safety requirements, and manages on-trip events (restaurants, air, hotel reservations, ground transport, etc.). Instant access to flight alerts, local city guides, corporate travel benefits, and policy information keeps employees engaged while focusing on business outcomes.

Instantly accessible on your employees' smartphones, desktops, and tablets

After booking a trip, all upcoming travel details load directly into the app by PNR feed, emailing itineraries, or inputting manually. The messaging center displays information such as city guides, office locations, visas, and health requirements to help travelers plan ahead.

Notifications nudge employees to adhere to policies (like booking windows and selecting preferred vendors) to maximize travel ROI. Destination-specific tips like local music, restaurants, and wellness activities keep them engaged and delighted.
