November 26, 2018

MADRID--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 26, 2018--With 402,000 employees worldwide, the digitalization of Bosch’s business travel tools is a strategic step for one of the world’s leading global suppliers of technology and services.

Amadeus’ latest partnership will see Bosch implement its flagship online booking tool, cytric Travel, with the added integration of Chrome River’s expense management tool, which will help the company process its global travel spend. Additionally, Bosch will implement the Amadeus Mobile platform capabilities, enabling its employees to stay informed during every step of their trip.

Bosch’s integrated solution, provided by Amadeus in partnership with Chrome River, one of the leading global expense management technology vendors, perfectly fits Bosch’s business travel needs. Thereby, Bosch will digitalize its travel and expense tool in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France, with a target to expand into a more global scope.

By combining Amadeus cytric Travel, the Amadeus Mobile platform, and the Chrome River EXPENSE solution, travelers will experience a seamless process from planning and booking their trip to submitting their travel expenses. Bosch employees will also benefit from on-trip support, such as help with directions, securing ground transportation, making restaurant reservations and taking pictures of receipts that will be simultaneously available in the mobile-first solution.

Furthermore, this fully-digital process includes a high variety of travel content ranging from flights and hotels to cars and rail.

Alan Rich, CEO and co-founder of Chrome River, said, “Chrome River’s robust and highly scalable mobile-first expense management solution enables global organizations to offer a seamless experience to their employees, no matter where they are based, or how they submit their expenses. Chrome River’s deep integration with Amadeus’ online booking tool means that Bosch travelers will benefit from best-in-class solutions that both enhance the employee experience and provide deep cost-control capabilities for the company’s travel and finance teams.”

Decius Valmorbida, President of Travel Channels, Amadeus, said, “Today’s market requires that companies be responsive to the needs of the business traveler, whilst remaining focused on cost control and compliance. We are thrilled to work with Bosch in partnership with Chrome River to help provide more cost-effective solutions for the company and better journeys for the traveler. Travel should be a pleasure whatever the purpose of the journey is, and we look forward to contributing to the Bosch travel vision.”
