Travel and expense technology provider Serko has announced a partnership with Uber that will enable easier expense claims for trips made through the ride-hailing firm.

The integration means trip information can be sent directly from an Uber for Business account to a Serko Zeno user’s expense report, meaning travellers won’t have to capture or forward email receipts.

Darrin Grafton, CEO of Serko, said: “Our focus is all about making corporate travel and expense smarter, by reducing friction for the traveller, maximising data integrity and giving the CFO greater visibility on the entire cost of travel. We’re excited to partner with Uber to bring a whole new level of simplicity to corporate expense management. This integration is a smarter way for organisations to enable their people to be mobile, as the whole payment and reconciliation process happens seamlessly.”

Georgia Foster, head of Uber for Business in Australia and New Zealand, added: “This integration with Serko Zeno makes it even easier for businesses to have transparency and control over their employees’ ground transportation spend, while delivering a better employee experience. Taking away cumbersome administration elements to streamline expense reporting where possible is better for everyone. This means no more having to sift through your email or wallet to find your receipts, and users can easily set up personal and business travel profiles to balance their travel needs.”
