Egencia launches APIs to automate travel and expense processes
New Egencia API Developer Center will provide quick implementation, configuration, and testing support
London, UK – April 21, 2022 – Egencia, the only proven global B2B travel tech platform, is expanding its innovation leadership with a new suite of APIs that enable organizations to automatically feed travel and expense data into internal business systems. The company is also launching the Egencia API Developer Center to help developers improve the speed and robustness of API implementation. The APIs will help companies drive operational efficiencies across travel programs and improve business decisions with easier access to real-time data insights.
As companies recover from the pandemic, travel programs have become a top priority for building culture and fuelling economic growth. As a result, travel managers need to work more closely with finance, human resources, and security teams. However, the process of entering, collecting, reconciling, and sharing data between internal and external systems is cumbersome and time-consuming. Egencia’s APIs help customers bring multiple systems together, breaking down silos and centralizing fragmented data. The ability to connect systems with APIs plays a critical role in the digital transformation of customers’ travel and expense programs.
Egencia’s open platform delivers a set of APIs to help consolidate and centralize data from multiple systems. The APIs enable businesses to automate and perform tasks in a scalable manner and build custom dashboards and reports. This enables companies to measure travel ROI and make timely, informed decisions using real-time data.
John Sturino, Vice President of Product & Technology at Egencia, said: “Our customers need to deeply understand the business impact of their travel programs. These data insights come from several systems, and IT plays a vital role in making them work together seamlessly. We are helping companies’ IT developers do this by delivering several APIs that are easy to use and bring booking and expense data over to enterprise systems. This delivers the needed innovation in business travel for all parts of the organization and puts the travel management function closer to the strategic heart of the business where it belongs."
In addition to the suite of APIs, the new Egencia API Developer Center is being launched to make it even easier for companies to build robust connections to automate and simplify their travel and expense programs. Built by developers for developers, the easy-to-navigate web site serves as a central hub for creating integrations with Egencia’s platform. The site is a resource center for developers providing clean technical documentation, quick starter guides and useful sample codes to help significantly speed up implementation time. The Egencia API Developer Center also guides customers with 1:1 support in installing and configuring sites, preparing testing environments, and running tests for a smooth and successful integration.
Several APIs are available to help customers with operational efficiency, spend management, data-driven decisions, and mitigating risk. Egencia’s APIs include:
- User management APIs: single sign-on and user sync
- Expense APIs: booking, expense, cancellation, deletion, receipts, validation, approval and custom data
- Reporting APIs: reporting, duty of care
