TripActions, the corporate travel and expense management provider, officially announced that it has rebranded to Navan and consolidated its platform solutions into a “super app.”

The name change comes, according to an announcement, as the company defines a new category of software: Business Software Designed for People. Ariel Cohen, CEO, said today’s enterprises need solutions that increase operational efficiencies, decrease costs, optimize processes, and ensure compliance. At the same time, he said, employees want to eliminate menial and manual tasks that take unnecessary time and energy away from their actual jobs. “When done well, it’s a magical experience for all involved,” said Cohen. “That’s what users get with Navan.”

Navan, according to the announcement, has pulled all its travel and expense offerings into a single super app that is now accessible to individual business travelers with an associated company email address. It has also integrated OpenAI’s API with its AI-powered virtual travel assistant, Ava, making Navan the first travel company to leverage the technology.

The brand change comes as a direct result of the company’s growth and evolution, according to the announcement. TripActions’ founding vision of a simplified corporate travel experience, said the company, has expanded to address the intertwined pain points of expense reporting, spend management, corporate cards, group travel, VIP travel, meetings and events, and personal travel.
