Government Brands is a privately owned SAAS software and online solution. Supporting thousands of government customers in 50 states, Government Brands offers solutions for all sizes of governments – municipalities, counties, states, and Federal agencies.
Government Brands employees booked their trips on various websites and platforms without the need for administrative approval. They were filing expense reports that would take their AP department days to review and approve. Travelers were expensing payments such as air, car, hotel, and meals.
To monitor employee spending, Government Brands searched for a more efficient solution. David Winters, the CFO of Government Brands, worked with Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI) at a previous company and thought it would be a great solution.
During the introductory process of the CSI Travel program, Government Brands was introduced to AmTrav, a Travel Management Company (TMC) and partner of CSI’s. The seamless integration between CSI and AmTrav allows Government Brands travelers to book their trips within a platform that provides a consolidated location for all travel information and consistent hotel rates for the company. Once a hotel reservation is booked, the integration between CSI and AmTrav automatically generates a virtual card which is sent to the hotel and made accessible through the CSI user interface, CSI PaySystems and the CSI Go mobile app.
