Fintech company Conferma has partnered with global transportation provider Karhoo in a bid to simplfy payments for business travellers.
Taxi app Karhoo says the move stops travel payments from being a “huge point of friction”.
Conferma says its payment solution will make it easier for travellers and companies to organise their travel, track expenses, pay suppliers and supply travel data.
Gavin Smith, head of travel partnerships at Karhoo said: “Hectic lifestyles and a need for convenience are fuelling a new era of consumer, reliant on breakthrough technologies that deliver on cost and ease of use.
“A major added benefit for travellers is the ability to book or pre-book transport fast, as well as arriving at the other end without the hassle of making payment or worrying about cash.
“Our partnership with Conferma is essential to make payments invisible and brings greater efficiencies for businesses at the same time as eliminating the hassle for travellers. Subsequently, we are able to streamline corporate travel efforts and open the door to new opportunities for growth.”
Founder of Conferma, Simon Barker, added: “We want to support international businesses by enabling them to cut corporate costs across all travel areas, without having to scale back.
“For Karhoo this eliminates a clunky payment process, creating scope for wider expansion and service excellence. Automating this process makes life easier for travellers and provides full visibility for businesses.”
