BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lola.com, the Agile Travel Management™ company that provides a super simple way to manage, book, report, and save on business travel, has welcomed Teampay, a venture-backed SaaS company modernizing how companies manage spend, as a Top Tier Sponsor of its first Agile Operations Summit on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 in Boston. Teampay will deliver the breakout session, “Achieving Proactive Control Over Spend in an Employee-First Culture,” as well as host the post-event happy hour. Teampay’s spend management software helps top-performing finance teams improve purchasing control, security, and compliance while giving employees responsible access to company money.
“Spending behavior is changing among remote teams with purchasing decisions now being made by individuals across an organization rather than a centralized purchasing department, so control on expenditures, particularly for SMBs, can be tricky,” said Mike Volpe, CEO of Lola.com. “Since Teampay gives finance teams control and transparency, while empowering workers with responsible spend, we are excited to have them share their expertise and showcase their product at our Agile Operations Summit.”
Teampay enables companies to request, approve, track, and reconcile expenditures in real-time. Through automation, the software reduces tedious manual labor by 75%, ensures employee compliance with purchasing policy, and eliminates rogue spending. This allows finance teams to concentrate on strategic work and supports the growth of the business.
“More employees are making purchases than ever before, which we refer to as the rise of ‘bottoms up’ spending,” said Andrew Hoag, founder and CEO of Teampay. “Employees at the edge of an organization are becoming more autonomous, and this is difficult for finance teams that have not adapted to the new era of distributed spend. Because Teampay gives finance teams the tools they need to solve these challenges and adopt a proactive spend management system, we are a perfect fit to address the Agile Operations Summit attendees.”
The Agile Operations Summit will deliver a wide range of topics to aid finance and operations leaders in growing their organizations. Attendees will see firsthand how new and innovative technology can help achieve maximum ROI for their company, get personal branding and career guidance from top performers, network with over 200 industry peers, and more. The event is being held at the award-winning EpiCenter at Artists for Humanity, which provides paid employment in art and design for over 250 under-resourced Boston teens annually.
Regular tickets include access to all the content, breakfast, lunch, snacks, and a spot at the one-of-a-kind after party with food and open bar. VIP tickets add a reserved seat in the first three rows for the keynote featuring Barbara Corcoran, “Shark” on ABC’s hit reality TV show, Shark Tank, a copy of her best-selling book, Shark Tales, and an exclusive meet and greet where she will sign the book and take a picture.
