HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwire – August 10, 2010) – Ariett Business Solutions announced today at NBTA 2010 (Booth #2256) that the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA), the largest airline pilot union in the world, representing nearly 53,000 pilots at 38 U.S. and Canadian airlines, has selected Ariett XpenseNet and MyTripNet to automate travel and expense management for 300 employees and 10000 airline pilot members. ALPA chose XpenseNet from a list of competitive vendors as a more cost-effective and scalable solution with its business unit concept that allows ALPA to establish different business rules/policies for employees and union members without additional cost. XpenseNet’s support for government provided CONUS/OCONUS per-diem rates will automate reimbursements, while robust group and line item workflow rules will allow managers to have visibility to expenses tagged to their budget.
“ALPA chose Ariett’s XpenseNet software for the flexibility it provides us operationally, as well as how well it interfaces with our existing systems,” said Charles Murphy, Director, Information Technology and Services, ALPA. “In addition, when considering options for an expense processing system, we were impressed with XpenseNet’s overall cost/benefit value, which met our overall requirements for price and performance.”
Leveraging XpenseNet’s Corporate Credit Card Integration, Bundled SRS SQL Based Reporting for Analysis and MobileNet for Smart Phone approvals provides greater ease of use and efficiency for end users, approvers, and finance team members.
Ariett MyTripNet provides ALPA with pre-trip authorization, and integration to industry standard travel booking tools, reducing transaction costs through user self-booking. Additionally, XpenseNet’s robust policy management helps ALPA to manage and enforce policies, capturing all details needed for approval and reporting. “Ariett XpenseNet’s innovative features provide functionality to support government CONUS/OCONUS rate structures, and organizations with complex approval workflows. ALPA recognized XpenseNet’s flexibility and value proposition to meet their large user community and policy compliance,” said Glenn Brodie, President, Ariett Business Solutions.
