Unveiling the Power of Reap Card: A Tale of Two Travels
In the realm of modern business, we're not just content with assumptions – we believe in putting solutions to the test. That's why we embarked on an AB test to evaluate the effectiveness of Reap Card for employee business travel. Join us as we dive into the experiences of Anna and Olivia, two adventurous souls who undertook the journey with distinct expense management approaches during their trips. Through their firsthand accounts, we'll demonstrate how Reap Card can revolutionize expense management and save precious time.
Anna vs. Olivia: A Journey of Discovery
Our protagonists, Anna and Olivia, embarked on a business trip to the Consensus event in Austin. Each embraced a different approach to handling expenses:
Variable A: Tradition Meets Challenge
Anna, the bold trailblazer, opted for traditional reimbursement methods – using cash and her personal credit card. Her journey uncovered a series of intriguing challenges:
Currency Conversion Hurdles: Anna encountered issues with currency differences when booking her flight, leading to uncertainties about reimbursement.
Transaction Rejections: A simple coffee purchase turned into an embarrassing moment as Anna's traditional payment methods were rejected.
Receipt Challenges: Obtaining receipts for cash transactions proved to be a headache, especially when it came to a taco at a food truck.
Delayed Reimbursement: Anna's use of personal credit cards resulted in a waiting game for reimbursement, extending beyond 20 days.
Communication Hassles: Multiple interactions with the budget owner and financial controller added complexity to her journey.
Currency Conversion Efforts: Anna had to navigate currency conversion steps, adding extra layers of work.
Variable B: The Reap Card Odyssey
Olivia, the savvy explorer, took a different route – relying solely on the Reap Card for all business expenses. Her experience unfolded seamlessly:
Streamlined Communication: Olivia required only one interaction with the budget owner to purchase her flight ticket, minimising administrative back-and-forth.
Effortless Transactions: Reap Card enabled smooth transactions through card or mobile wallet, eliminating friction.
No Reimbursement Needed: Reap Card's direct handling of expenses removed the need for reimbursement, saving time.
No Personal Credit Card: Unlike Anna, Olivia was free from relying on personal credit cards for business expenses.
Real-time Currency Handling: Olivia sidestepped real-time conversion checks and the hassle of cash exchange.
