Newsbyte: SAP® Cloud For Travel Solution Helps Increase Global Compliance And Empower Customer Choice With Open Booking

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP NEWSBYTE --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that the SAP® Cloud for Travel solution, designed to effortlessly manage travel and expenses, is offering additional convenience for business travelers with new open booking capabilities enabled by integration with Traxo, a web based travel management provider, as well as out-of-the-box support for 20 countries. With these updates, in addition to recently added analytic and mobile capabilities, SAP Cloud for Travel is designed to allow financial officers and business travelers to handle the end-to-end process of travel and expense management faster and with lower cost while staying in compliance with corporate policies. The announcement was made at GBTA 2013, being held August 4-7 in San Diego, where SAP is onsite at booth #2737.


"SAP Cloud for Travel is a fully integrated solution that helps us eliminate excessive administrative work and reduces travel expenses," said Tony Velleca, chief information officer, UST Global. "We've already witnessed tangible business ROI since our implementation of SAP Cloud for Travel, and now with open booking, we are looking forward to retaining visibility of travelers' behavior while providing flexibility for arranging trips."

Through integration with Traxo, SAP Cloud for Travel provides business travelers with the choice to manage booking their way while still giving companies the visibility and control neededto help ensure compliance. When travel transactions happen outside a corporate travel system, it is difficult for financial teams to match up expense reports and credit card data. In partnership with Traxo, SAP Cloud for Travel now aggregates travel data from all relevant channels and seamlessly and securely sends this information back into a company's financial and travel system. Traxo also captures reservations of flights and hotels that are booked anywhere online. It then combines the reservations into digital itineraries available on SAP Cloud for Travel.

"In partnership with SAP, Traxo offers a rescue tool that helps eliminate travel chaos and produce a smooth, easy outcome for employees and employers alike," said Andres Fabris, CEO and founder of Traxo. "With open booking from SAP Cloud for Travel and Traxo, employees are empowered with greater freedom, choice and flexibility. Employers enhance their visibility into the critical travel information they need to run their business — everyone benefits."

Global capabilities of SAP Cloud for Travel are expanding with out-of-the-box support for 20 countries and integration with leading online booking tools, which help customers configure the solution to fit their company's travel policy and ensure compliance. The 20 countries currently supported by the solution include: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and U.S.
