BEIJING, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Baoku Online Inc. (Baoku), the leading business travel and expense management company headquartered in Beijing, China, has recently received series-A funding from Matrix Partners China, following an earlier strategic investment in 2014 from CBC Capital and Asiainfo-Linkage. With nearly a decade of experience in business travel management, Baoku revolutionizes the way business travel has been traditionally (and inadequately) managed by launching a cloud-based SaaS solution platform that weaves together enterprises' internal process and suppliers' (and intermediaries') reservation process es. Enterprises have long been challenged by a disjointed internal travel process by having to deal with various suppliers' (airlines, hotels, etc .) different processes and systems (reservation, payment, etc .). As a result, among other issues, enterprises lack the complete data needed to manage their internal process es as well as their suppliers. User experience (of the whole travel process) for their business travelers has also long been a source of employee dissatisfaction. Unlike other solution providers who str ive to resolve parts of the challenge, Baoku offers its enterprise clients a one-stop, end -to -end SaaS solution on demand, covering internal process management, supply chain management, booking and reservation, payment and clearing services, data services, and a shared service center for business travelers. Using Baoku, a business traveler can initiate a request for travel, receiv e his/her manager's approval, mak e reservations, clai m expenses, receiv e approval, and more, all through one system. Finance and Support departments can monitor suppliers' performance, collect complete data, improv e payment efficiency and perfor m analysis that helps to improve the quality of future travel -related decisions.
