Melbourne, Australia, 28 July 2015 — Australian travel tech company, Locomote, today announced it has integrated with global expense management platform Expensify, the fastest growing expense reporting software company worldwide, to simplify business travel, making it more efficient and smarter.
The partnership will make travel an integrated experience, connecting all the tools needed to plan, book and report business trips in real-time, saving organisations up to 35 per cent in costs.
