Meet the 2023 Winner: Ava, Navan’s Automated Virtual Assistant

Category: Business Travel

While AI has played an integral role across Navan’s platform since its inception in 2015, OpenAI’s launch of GPT changed the game. Navan immediately recognized the power and potential of this groundbreaking technology and began to integrate it after partnering quickly with OpenAI.

Just weeks later, on February 7, 2023, Navan became the very first travel company (across business and leisure) to integrate generative AI into its product set. And on May 4, Navan became the very first expense management company to offer a dashboard of data insights for CFOs and finance teams.

Now, Navan’s generative AI-powered assistant and analyst – named Ava, short for automated travel assistant – enables more personalized options for travelers and provides CFOs and corporate travel admins with deeper insights into their company’s data than has ever been possible, in an instant. With a single prompt, Ava can unearth information that could transform a company by delivering time – and money – saving insights.

Thanks to Ava, program administrators get deeper insights, enabling them to focus on objectives that move their business forward (rather than busy work).
