Microsoft Corp. and American Express Co. are developing an online reservation system for corporate travelers, the companies said Monday. The service will let executives make airline, hotel and rental car reservations and buy tickets using personal computers. It will also let companies monitor employees' spending habits to make sure they conform to company policy. Financial terms of the agreement, which gives American Express a two-year exclusive right to use the system, were not disclosed.
