The voice technology startup – creator of the EVA (Expert Virtual Agent) tool – will receive $2 million from Concur as part of the Concur Perfect Trip initiative.
The idea behind the $150 million fund, Concur says, is to “identify and partner with promising companies that will participate in the Concur T&E Cloud”.
No other companies have been identified as yet.
Evature has had a number of earlier successes in its relatively short history, securing a voice tool deal with iCruise¬†earlier this year¬†as well as working with Travelport as part of its entry for the PhoCusWright Travel Innovation Summit, which it eventually won.
Concur chairman and CEO Steve Singh says:
“Concur‚Äôs vision for The Perfect Trip is built on creating a travel ecosystem that dynamically responds to the needs of business travelers, the companies that they work for and the suppliers that serve them.”
