Ramp said the company is working to develop a finance automation system that will do away with the wasted time spent “chasing receipts and expense reports,” according to the post. The technology startup launched in 2019 and is aiming to streamline finance tools in a way that traditional financial services firms have not been able to accomplish.
So far, the startup has created a corporate card and software solution that is helping companies save money. Ramp works with companies of all sizes — from startups to big corporates — and also serves every sector, including healthcare, construction, education and technology.
“Customers are saving 3.3 percent on average when they switch to Ramp,” according to Glyman, adding that Ramp offers 1.5 percent cashback in addition to savings insights and real-time spending reports.
“From my conversations with customers, we consistently hear the need for better-designed, easy-to-use software that frees people from the traps of busywork,” the CEO said.
“Travel booking, invoice processing, contract negotiations — those aren’t the reasons why you started a company, yet they’re the kind of mundane tasks that cost you and your team countless hours and resources,” he added.
