One of the leading independent digital advertising platforms globally, Amobee provides end-to-end, omnichannel campaign management powered by in-depth analytics and proprietary audience data.

With offices crisscrossing the globe, Amobee needed a travel management company (TMC) that provides a unified platform through which to manage bookings and run reporting with ease.

By implementing Navan, Amobee gained access to a user-friendly platform to streamline global booking and simplify reconciliation.

Challenges Before Navan

  • Poor user experience and difficulty ensuring correct bookings
  • Hassle of manual policy enforcement
  • Inability to access real-time reporting
  • Limited global reach

Results with Navan

  • Attractive, easy-to-use platform makes managing travel a breeze
  • Tiered policy simplifies enforcement
  • Time savings of ~40 hours/year due to global reporting & reconciliation capabilities

Before: Delayed Reporting & Lack of Global Reach

Booking travel through the previous TMC was onerous, but reporting was the real ordeal. “We had to wait until the 15th of the following month to get any kind of meaningful reporting,” said Sharon who was often left scrambling to input numbers into the general ledger before the company’s monthly close.

Managing global travel — a necessity for Amobee, with offices in Israel, Australia, Singapore, London, and beyond — was a hassle for both traveling employees and Sharon’s team, since Amobee’s old TMC lacked direct support abroad.

“Each of those TMCs had different tools and pricing structure,” Sharon said. “I couldn’t get a complete picture of what was happening.”

Now: Globally Reconciled Travel Reports

Reconciliation is now a breeze. Sharon simply uploads her credit card bill to Navan and within seconds has a fully reconciled report. “It’s a 12 out of 10,” Sharon said.

And thanks to Navan's global reach, all worldwide Amobee employees can use the platform to book and manage travel — which means Sharon can reconcile globally.

Now: Real-time Reporting and Tiered Policy Controls

With Navan, Sharon is able to access traveler information and reporting in real time. “We don’t have to rely on anyone else, and we can arrange the reporting exactly how we’d like,” she said. That means no more waiting until the following month to access reports or manually combing through them to identify out-of-policy bookings.

Instead, Amobee gets the flexibility to build out multiple policy tiers with accompanying notifications. And when an employee books out of policy, Sharon and the relevant managers receive and email with details of the booking. “We then just need to determine whether it’s ok or not,” Sharon said.

We needed a powerful booking engine with a great travel management company behind it, but that didn’t exist before Navan. It’s truly the first one.
