Apptegy, an edtech startup that enables K–12 administrators to strengthen their school’s digital identity, found itself in uncharted but exciting territory when demand skyrocketed in 2020.
The company quickly grew from 100 to 400 employees, about a quarter of whom travel for business. Given Apptegy’s increase in business travel and spend, the company needed a travel and expense (T&E) solution that could support employees on the road and empower the company with increased spend visibility.
Apptegy tried a number of patchwork solutions like Ramp-TravelPerk and Brex-TravelBank, but the disjointed approach led to one headache after another.
Then Apptegy turned to Navan for a truly unified T&E platform — and it hasn’t looked back.
Results with Navan
Since making the switch to Navan, a whopping 95% of Apptegy’s corporate card transactions are automatically approved and coded. This change alone has saved the company at least two to four hours per month—time that was previously spent on manual coding.
Since the company switched to Navan, every Apptegy road warrior has reported a much-improved traveler experience.
“Navan boosts the employee experience and helps with retention. It eliminates mundane tasks that take time away from team members doing their actual job,” said Berardi.
“From a scalability standpoint, this is the product that future-proofs Apptegy for the journey to enterprise. As Apptegy continues to grow, I don’t feel nervous that we will need to reevaluate and switch to another provider. Navan is going to continue to innovate and continue to grow with us.”
