Rearden Commerce Announces Alliance with IBM
Bringing More Choice and Flexibility are Key Goals
Rearden Commerce today announced a new alliance with IBM’s Managed Business Process division (IBM MBPS), with the goal to introduce more choice to the expense management and online procurement category.
“Rearden Commerce believes it is important to provide the market with choice, and the ability to find best of breed solutions,” said Tony D’Astolfo, vice president of travel at Rearden Commerce. “We have had multiple instances where our customers and prospects have asked for this partnership and we’re thrilled that it has come to fruition.”
"One of IBM's biggest advantages is that it offers clients the ability to select the best fitting solutions from the travel spectrum without forcing them into a specific set of products. With this approach, clients can benefit from the flexibility they need, along with all the advantages of an integrated solution," said Ray Curatolo, director of IBM Global Expense Reporting Solutions. "IBM and Rearden Commerce will work together to provide the highest level of corporate and end user convenience and functionality around booking travel and expense management."
