Corporate booking and expense tech provider Serko on Tuesday announced that Visa implemented its online booking tool for employees in the Americas and Asia/Pacific. Supported by Visa's travel management company, CWT, the deal is significant for the New Zealand-based corporate travel tech firm, which has been seeking a U.S. foothold for a few years. Visa is now a top-ten account globally and its largest client in North America, where Serko generated about 15 percent of revenue during the year ending in March.
