Emburse, a global leader in expense management and accounts payable automation solutions, has acquired mobile travel technology provider Roadmap. Emburse expects the acquisition to strengthen its ability to deliver a positive end-to-end traveler experience.
“Business travel will return – but it will look completely different to pre-pandemic travel,” said Eric Friedrichsen, CEO of Emburse. “Businesses requiring their employees to travel will place greater emphasis on the quality of that experience. They will also pay closer attention to business travel policies to ensure trips are not only cost-effective, but also safe and environmentally responsible. Bringing Roadmap into our suite of solutions allows our customers to offer their employees a modern, consumer-like travel experience that empowers employees and is reflective of their policies and values.”
“Roadmap and Emburse share the same philosophy of humanizing work by providing a great user experience and eliminating the need for employees to spend time using unintuitive tools,” said Jeroen van Velzen, CEO and co-founder of Roadmap. “By keeping users within the app for all travel-related activity, Roadmap helps organizations minimize booking leakage, which in turn improves spend visibility and controls cost. Together, we will be able to increase the pace of innovation for our customers, and enhance Emburse’s existing mobile solutions. We look forward to being part of Emburse’s continued global growth.”
