Automating business travel management has never been easier

A few years ago travelling for work meant multiple emails for approval, high-cost changes, and manual tracking. If this is still the present for your company – there’s a better way to manage your business travels.  

Automation can be seen all over how people live today. From communicating, learning, and even working, that efficiency has given the opportunity to perform better and have more time for themselves. Getting an automated business travel solution minimizes human error and also enables companies to develop ideal travel policies. Delaying the automation of corporate travel can actually have companies lose money. 

Here are some clear-cut benefits to businesses when they automate business travel management. 

Get up to 35% savings cost

Did you know that travel and expenses is the 2nd largest cost in most companies? The good news is that it’s controllable with the right set of tools. Above everything else, driving efficiencies in booking and management of trips saves money. Combine that with a comprehensive inventory of flights and hotels for travellers to choose more cost-efficient options, there’s guaranteed savings for companies.

Less time on paperwork, more time closing deals

Let’s list how many people are involved in booking a business trip: the traveller, a business admin, a travel agency or corporate travel service, and approving manager. Now multiply that number with email back-and-forths until the business trip is booked. That’s a lot of billable hours lost on travel management when it can be used to focus on your clients and grow the business. When you automate, there’s one place for all the activity and easy approvals for reservations. 

When it all boils down, the business is only as effective as it’s people. Automation improves the business traveller experience and that can only mean a positive impact for your company.
