NEW YORK - Mar 07, 2018
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced a strategic collaboration with Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the corporate travel industry, to integrate travel and expense management solutions. Paired with Infor's flexible and configurable travel and entertainment (T&E) expense management solution, this integration offers customers more choice in travel and spend management vendor selection along with an integrated booking tool that automatically transfers data from the Deem Work Fource platform to Infor Expense Management.
"Our goal is to revolutionize business travel and eliminate the headaches and hassles of conventional travel software," said John F. Rizzo, President and Chief Operating Officer, Deem. "Our partnership with Infor is an important step in that direction. By integrating Deem Work Fource with best-of-breed partner solutions through our Fource Alliance program, companies can make travel booking, expensing and management an automatic and touchless process."
Integrating systems improves travel expense management for both business travelers and their employers. When traveler's book flights, hotels and services using Work Fource, expenses can automatically flow into the expense reporting software. This saves users from having to manually enter expenses and allows corporate travel managers to review and manage expenditures proactively before the trip is taken - providing better control over travel spending.
"By working with leading organizations, such as Deem, Infor is able to drive overall business performance for customers more effectively," said Mark Corsetti, Vice President and General Manager, Infor. "Infor is committed to ensuring that its customers have the most innovative applications, and premiere experiences with its solutions, and we will continue to seek new ways and partnerships in which to drive value for them."
Infor Expense Management offers unique and insightful capabilities for spending control, reporting, and analysis. Customers can actively manage employee-initiated expenses while on the go, thanks to mobile capabilities and cloud deployment, and reduce those costs without impeding their business. Whether an organization has one location, or it's a complex, multinational operation, Infor Expense Management can automate expense-related business processes with social collaboration tools, enforce policy compliance, cut administrative costs, and reduce the risk of accidental errors and intentional fraud.

Deem's platform, Work Fource, brings design, machine learning and customization together to provide the business travel ecosystem with a solution for managing travel costs at the beginning of the booking process, and integrating them seamlessly with the back-end expense reporting required by finance departments.
"Infor has enhanced its expense management capabilities with its recent partnership with Deem," said Robert Kugel, Senior Vice President of Ventana Research.
