Sodexo joins forces with iAlbatros and Xpenditure
New offer will enhance the way companies and business travelers manage travel booking and expenses.
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life services, announced today it is joining forces with two innovative scale-ups, Xpenditure and iAlbatros, to deliver a comprehensive, user-friendly business travel and expense management experience for both companies and business travelers alike.
Leveraging the complementary strengths of Orville, a travel booking specialist and Nima, a paperless expense management system, Sodexo will further build its position in the growing travel and expense market. The easy to use mobile platforms will improve the way companies monitor travel expenses and enhance business travelers’ quality of life. Through Sodexo’s international foot print, the end-to-end offering will be progressively available to clients from large corporation to SMEs.
Denis Machuel, Global Chief Executive Officer, Benefits & Rewards Services, said: “More than ever, our clients are looking to us for integrated solutions that allow them to work more efficiently and provide better experiences for their employees. Nima and Orville offer just that – technologically-savvy, user-friendly systems for business travelers that enhance their overall travel experience. We look forward to welcoming the Nima and Orville teams, whose expertise and innovative mind-set will help reinforce our client offer. ”
Boris Bogaert, Global Chief Executive Officer, Xpenditure, said: “We are pleased to be working with Sodexo as we share a common vision that the travel and expense management experience needs to be employee driven. This venture gives us the opportunity to become a global player in the enterprise segment.”
Moncef Khanfir, Global Chief Executive Officer, iAlbatros, said: “The opportunity with Sodexo is an accelerator for our business and will help us reach our goal of bringing improved business travel booking experiences to more companies worldwide. We are aligned on the potential of this important market.”
Xpenditure automates and streamlines business expense processes for high-growth companies and enterprises. Its mobile and web application transforms the outdated expense reporting process by empowering employees to snap and manage expenses anywhere in real-time. Its powerful paperless automation boosts employee productivity and eliminates the hidden costs associated with legacy systems.
