SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Expensify and Lyft kicked off a new partnership today with the launch of a direct integration that enables Lyft riders to automatically expense their rides when traveling for work. Riders no longer have to forward Lyft receipts to Expensify, and instead will see their Lyft rides automatically added to expense reports for seamless receipt tracking and reimbursement. Individuals can set up the automatic expense integration by creating a Lyft Business Profile and selecting “Expensify” in their settings, while company admins can start a Lyft for Business account and invite the entire team to easily monitor ride expenses.
“It’s always a pleasure to partner with one of our customers, especially in this case – Lyft rides are one of the five most commonly expensed items in Expensify!” notes David Barrett, CEO and founder of Expensify. “Our goal is to make expense management something that happens behind-the-scenes, so our customers can focus on their business and not on keeping track of receipts. Our partnership with Lyft continues to make that vision a reality.”
The integration with Lyft is part of Expensify’s ReceiptBurner platform, which aims to eliminate receipts once and for all through partnerships with the most commonly expensed merchants, including Revel Systems POS, HotelTonight, Egencia, and other travel vendors. Within the first two months of launching a ReceiptBurner partnership like Lyft, Expensify sees up to 400% growth in the volume of receipts automatically imported via the associated integration.
“We’re always searching for ways to enhance the Lyft rider experience from end-to-end, and now with the Expensify integration we can leave a positive imprint even after the trip is complete,” says David Baga, Chief Business Officer at Lyft.
