Microsoft and Amadeus have announced the integration of Cytric Travel & Expense, the Amadeus online booking and expense management tool, into the Microsoft Modern Workplace. It means users can plan trips and share travel details with colleagues without leaving their day-to-day applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Teams.

Focus Travel Partnership has partnered with Amadeus to resell its Cytric business travel management tool. Cytric streamlines and simplifies end-to-end processes, from planning and booking for corporate travellers and TMCs, curating travel content from multiple sources, displaying it on one single screen to the user so that they can compare and make the best decision.
