With the redesign of the all-new App Store, Apple introduced a Today tab. Within this section the App Store’s editors highlight a curated selection of favorites each day and “share the stories behind the apps and games that change the way we live and the developers whose ideas push and shape the world as we know it.”
Yesterday we were absolutely thrilled to see TravelBank selected as one of the first App of the Day features in the new App Store.
We are beyond humbled to see this feature, and watch the newest round of signups roll in, but it also reminds us why we continue to work so hard to reshape the task of travel and expense management. Today expense reporting is seen as a painful task, but we think the whole process should be “headache-free,” as the App Store editors aptly put it. Even better, we think the whole situation could benefit both the company and their employees – in the form of rewards.
“Booking a cheap late-night flight? Rewards! Soup instead of steak? More rewards!”
And when it comes to rewarding employees for making better spending decisions with the company dime, we carefully select incentives we know the modern traveler uses everyday like credit with Amazon.com gift cards, Uber, Lyft, Airbnb and more.
“We don’t know about you, but we’d rather have a $100 Amazon gift card than a slightly nicer dinner at the airport.”
It’s clear to us that the modern business traveler needs a smarter set of tools to get the job done, which is why we built TravelBank to help employees manage their business travel and expense, and help companies empower a new generation of expense management.
