US-based Airbase, the only comprehensive spend management platform available for small and mid-market companies, has announced a strategic partnership with the bank of the world’s most innovative companies and their investors, Silicon Valley Bank, on 6 October 2021.

Airbase and SVB Partnership will lead to:

  • SVB’s business cards can now be managed with Airbase’s spend management platform, which automates accounting and spends approval workflows. 
  • The new integration with SVB’s corporate card issuing platform will allow the bank’s customers to realize the value of a consolidated spend management platform while remaining with the business credit card program they already use and love.
  • SVB customers can now manage all their non-payroll spending in one place — SVB cards, bill payments, employee expense reimbursements — with robust approvals, AP automation, and real-time reporting.

Airbase administers consistent approval workflows across all areas, automates accounting, and provides real-time reporting for non-payroll spending. Airbase permits employees with a uniform approach to spending money, whether that involves corporate card spend, raising a PO, or requesting reimbursement. Airbase lets accounts payable teams manage every dollar spent. On one platform, companies can track expense requests and approvals, manage recurring subscription fees, process invoices, make bill payments, and more – as well as reconcile all accounting back to the general ledger.
