The State Of West Virginia Signs Five-year Deal With TRX For Integrated Booking And Expense Management Services
Industry Partners TRX and DATABASICS Team Up To Provide End-to-End Booking and Expense Management
“We are looking forward to working with TRX and DATABASICS to provide the State of West Virginia travelers with the most efficient and effective travel experience possible,” said Glen B. Gainer III, State Auditor. “We believe the joint offering provides the right balance and choice in functionality, and we are able to draw from the vast experience both providers bring to better meet our business needs,” added Gainer.
“This was one of the most significant joint deals completed so far in 2009,” observed Alan Tyson, CEO of DATABASICS. “The requirements were also among the most demanding. Our team won not only because we were able to demonstrate functionality that others only talk about. We won because of the flexibility, understanding and commitment we displayed. The State recognized that Software-as-a-Service goes beyond running an application on remote computers. It requires vendors who will see the implementation through. We clearly were best prepared to do this and are very gratified to be the State’s choice.”
“This win is further evidence of our continued progress towards providing a true end-to end-solution,” said Shane Hammond, President and CEO, TRX. “We’ve found there is a growing demand for providers to deliver ‘true choice’ in travel management solutions centered on clients’ specific business practices. The state of West Virginia recognized our joint value proposition as being the one could most effectively meet the demands of the State’s operations and we are pleased to have been selected.”
DATABASICS and TRX have been active integration partners since the 2008 announcement of an integrated solution.
“We are enjoying success jointly bidding for corporate and government business with strong TMC players and nimble expense providers like DATABASICS. We plan to aggressively step up the pursuit of bundled booking and expense customers with key partners. The general open architecture and ease of integration with our Web Services layer makes it a seamless experience for the customer,” added Hammond.
