London-based fintech company SumUp helps more than four million small businesses around the world manage payments and finance.

With offices on four continents and a people-first company culture, SumUp needed a T&E partner that could enable its employees to travel frequently for team events and offsites worldwide.

SumUp wanted a partner that not only had the best product but also shared its passion for technological innovation and in-person connections. In Navan it found a close cultural fit.

Navan’s end-to-end travel and expense (T&E) solution streamlined SumUp’s previously disparate solutions into one easy-to-use platform.

Before Navan — the problem

Before Navan, SumUp used three separate solutions for T&E, creating significant inefficiencies:

  • Employees were wasting time on manual integrations
  • Booking travel was time-consuming
  • The finance team had no visibility into spend

The Navan effect — seven months on

Navan's comprehensive onboarding process enabled SumUp to optimize its T&E program at speed and start seeing instant results:

  • Data is automatically synced with Workday, SumUp's HRIS, saving the accounting team from manual data entry
  • The improved, consumer-grade experience has led to a significant increase in platform adoption (up to 23%)
  • The finance team can see T&E spend in real time and analyze data with granularity

"Now the team has all the solutions they need in one platform, they’re more autonomous. Navan has given us the agility and flexibility we need while being engaging, intuitive, and easy to use."
