Routespring offers multiple ways to centralize the payments for all business travel expenses

Routespring understands the need for centralizing the payments for all business travel expenses so that neither the finance team nor the travelers have to spend time managing the reimbursements. That’s why Routespring offers multiple options to help you choose the right payment method for your business. 

Navan (formerly TripActions), on the other hand, only allows you to use your existing corporate/ personal cards, to your employees. 

Routespring will help you save up to 60% admin resources by eliminating reimbursement process

Routespring’s seamless business travel management software enables you to centrally manage payments for all the business travel expenses — without having your employees pay out-of-pocket. This helps in avoiding huge overheads involved in processing reimbursements and/or in having a dedicated person to manage travel bookings and payments.

Additionally, your Routespring account is preconfigured with a standard travel policy to help you achieve faster implementation. Just add your travelers, and give them the freedom to book their favorite travel options. The product is so intuitive that you don’t need a demo or schedule training for your team.

Whereas, Navan (formerly TripActions) is fairly complex software requiring you to schedule multiple demos and create an elaborate implementation plan to roll it out across your teams. You can avoid all that by choosing Routespring.

Routespring can help you recover costs on cancellation of nonrefundable fares

Trips get canceled for many reasons. In most cases, airlines offer the value of tickets as credit that can be used for any future travel. But utilizing unused airline credits has challenges. To avoid all this hassle and loss of funds, Routespring has designed corporate travel management software to enable the automated utilization of unused airline credits. There is no need to document, search or even remember! Any unused travel credit is just automatically applied and utilized for your next flight. This allows you to recover 100% of the cost in nonrefundable airfares. 

Moreover, if you need complete flexibility in trip cancellations (including nonrefundable hotel room rates), Routespring offers an option of FluidRefund, which guarantees a refund of 80% of the trip cost – no questions asked. 

Routespring is made for every type of traveler

With Routespring, it doesn’t matter who your travelers are. They could be your full-time employees, external consultants, contract workers, guests, clients, interview candidates, or anyone who travels to get your job done. The platform is designed to make it easier to onboard all types of travelers without having them go through any kind of training or demo. However, if you need any help, Routespring’s expert staff is always there to support you. 

Importantly, the Routespring platform allows you to centralize the payments and avoid processing reimbursements for different use cases for different travelers, such as sponsoring travel for conference attendees, paying for extended stays for contract workers on on-site projects, sponsoring travel for the company’s offsite events, and so on.
