The integration of travel booking functionality with expense reporting capabilities ensures a streamlined workflow, compliance with corporate policies, and real-time visibility into travel expenditure. This initiative responds to the growing demand for robust expense management solutions driven by increased corporate travel volume, cost control measures, and the pursuit of enhanced traveler experiences.

Expense management solutions play a pivotal role in facilitating policy compliance, centralized visibility, efficiency, and automation, thereby optimizing travel programs and improving bottom-line performance. The seamless data transfer between booking platforms and expense management systems further enhances operational efficiency.

Industry estimates project a significant surge in travel expenditure by Indian travelers, with total expenditure expected to reach $410 billion by 2030, representing a substantial increase compared to pre-COVID levels. In light of this, Zaggle is strategically positioned to capitalize on this burgeoning market, with the partnership with EaseMyTrip underscoring the company’s commitment to expanding its footprint in the travel and expense management sector.

This collaboration marks Zaggle’s second major business partnership in the travel domain, with plans to forge additional alliances with travel management companies (TMCs) in the near future.

Avinash Godkhindi, MD & CEO of Zaggle, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, emphasizing the company’s dedication to empowering businesses with innovative solutions. He stated, “Our partnership with EaseMyTrip underscores our commitment to empowering businesses with cutting-edge solutions that simplify complex processes. By combining our expertise in payment technology with EaseMyTrip’s extensive travel network, we are poised to deliver unparalleled value to our customers.”
