TripActions has announced it was “ushering in a new era” with the renaming of the company to Navan, said a report in BusinessTravelNews.com.
Managed travel platform and travel management company TripActions will rebrand on February 7, according to official communications sent to customers this week and obtained late yesterday by both BTN and BTN Europe from separate industry sources.
Though it was not included in the official communications, BTN has learned the company will be known as Navan and is billing itself as ‘ushering in a new era’ that will redefine and reset expectations of what business software should be — designed for people, according to the customer documentation.
The vast majority — if not all — of the company’s products will be renamed. The flagship TripActions product will become Navan Business Travel, Navan Group Travel and Navan Guest Travel.
The company’s Lemonade product will be called Navan Personal Travel. The Liquid payment and expense product will become Navan Travel Payment and Navan Expense.
The mobile-first travel management company will launch a new app with the rebranding and has advised customers that simple actions may need to be taken, but customer details will port to the new systems.
“Please be prepared to update your TripActions app next week, if it does not already auto-update based on your settings,” read one customer communication, likely targeted to travelers. The buyer communication detailed that travelers who had booked on the platform in the last 120 days would receive a direct notification from the company on January 31.
It continued: “Your existing profile information, trip plans and expenses will follow you to the new app, so you won’t need to re-enter any information.”
TripActions on August 12, 2022, applied to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark the name “Navan” for broad usage on products touching travel booking, travel management and expense.
