Informa, the B2B exhibitions and events group, has chosen TripActions, the travel, expense, and corporate card solution company, as their new international travel management partner.
The appointment comes in the wake of TripActions’ recent $275m Series F growth funding round, which will be used to further drive investment in product innovation and global expansion.
Chris Vik, senior vice-president of sales at TripActions, said: “The pandemic really accelerated the need for digitalisation in business travel as companies look to manage the high levels of duty of care required for modern travel and spend. Our in-house support agents with 24/7 365 service over chat, email, and phone from multiple offices and in local languages, gives travellers the confidence that help is on hand around the clock.”
TripActions was unanimously selected by more than 30 stakeholders across HR, travel, finance, procurement, sustainability, IT, and business representatives. Key to the decision was a single unified platform with a global traveller-centric approach, full 360-degree traveller visibility that helps Informa deliver comprehensive support and care, and transparency of global content.
Melissa Willock, group travel director at Informa, commented: “When our colleagues travel for work or to meet customers, we want to make it a smooth experience for them, help them select the most effective travel choices in terms of cost, time and carbon use, and ensure we can support them wherever they are. TripActions delivers all of this.”
