Making Business Travelers Happy One Trip at a Time: TravelPerk

thesiliconreview-avi-meir-ceo-travelperk-19Business travel is a huge pain for everyone involved. Travelers can’t get the options they want or book for themselves. Administrators have too many little details to keep track of and are always short on time. Finance controllers are completely blind, with no access to travel data.
