Datto is a cloud-based software and security solution company for managed service providers with offices dotting the globe. The company is scaling rapidly, adding hundreds of new employees since the pandemic began. With this continuous growth, Datto needed a streamlined solution to support its employees’ travel across four continents.

Datto’s previous solution, SAP Concur, was anything but streamlined. In place of a single platform to book and manage travel, Datto relied on a patchwork of travel management companies (TMCs) at home and abroad, which created a slew of challenges.

Enhanced Global Inventory

“One huge enhancement with the Navan platform is the robust inventory,” said Lisa. “Now that it’s all available on the platform, folks love to book through it. Adoption has improved on the Navan platform.”

And better adoption has meant significant savings for Datto; the company has saved 17% on hotel bookings alone.

“It all goes back to scalability. That’s why I’m so passionate about Navan.”
