Online booking technology gives Certify the rich features enterprise customers demand, making it a clear alternative to Concur for corporate travel services
PORTLAND, Maine, Sept. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading automated travel and entertainment expense management software provider, Certify, announces the acquisition of the corporate online booking technology platform from nuTravel. The technology purchased from nuTravel will form the basis of a new offering from Certify called Certify Enterprise Travel, which will complement the standard Certify Travel booking application for small business with features ideal for large and midsize companies and their travel management partners.
Certify Enterprise Travel will also allow customers to work with any corporate travel agency as the ticketing provider of choice. In addition, product features and services will provide extended corporate travel management capabilities including advanced travel policy enforcement, extended workflow routing, direct connections to vendors, duty of care functionality, and select supplier inventory for employee use.
Certify, which has many enterprise customers including H&R Block, Pitney Bowes and Garmin International, now offers a complete in-house solution for travel and expense management for small businesses up to large enterprises, making it a smart alternative to Concur. In May, the company received the highest overall user satisfaction score from review site G2Crowd.com, extending Certify’s winning of this award for the past three years.
Travel management companies (TMCs) can offer Certify Enterprise Travel to their customers, simplifying the T&E management process with an integrated solution covering desktop and mobile users. Certify Enterprise Travel also provides single sign-on capabilities and support for international travelers, including language and currency conversions. This creates a true “end to end” solution in the corporate travel and expense process, allowing the TMC to offer this integrated solution directly to their customers.
“We are now one of the only expense management providers that also controls the online booking technology, making Certify a best-in-class travel and expense management solution,” says Bob Neveu, president, Certify. “Our partnership opportunities with TMCs and corporate travel departments are extensive and we will continue to disrupt the T&E space.”
The nuTravel technology acquisition includes a team of Dallas-based developers and sales professionals. Separately, nuTravel will continue to operate in the airline services business and will not compete with Certify.
“These are exciting times for Certify as nuTravel was looking for a partner that would acquire our booking tool and take it to the next level. Certify was a natural fit for both parties and this allows Certify to strengthen its position and ability to compete in the mid-large corporate market for a fully integrated T&E platform,” said Carmine Carpanzano, CEO, nuTravel. “We have been speaking with our customers and TMC distributors for quiet a while and Certify has the answer and we know the market is ready to embrace good healthy competition.”
