Corporate Traveller Can Save You Money and Time
Find out how you can save money and time by talking to a Corporate Traveller Expert Travel Consultant, visit Stand Number C10P

It sounds counterintuitive, right? To pay a company of travel experts to book your business travel trips, instead of it being the duty of a PA or Office Manager.


That’s what one client asked, leading travel management company, Corporate Traveller UK during the early phases of their partnership. So, they worked to put the theory to the test - using some of the client’s pains as a starting point, and auditing where they could be more efficient.

 

It was calculated for this particular client, booking for one year with Corporate Traveller UK will result in:

  • £1.8m total annual travel spend
  • £300k worth of savings to global business
  • 17% total savings versus the previous year

Problem: Lots of admin for your internal team
Solution: Let a travel expert do it!

  • £300k financial savings – equivalent to 8.5 full-time staff members!
  • Your existing staff will get time back in their day to focus on other tasks.
  • Less stress for everyone.


Problem: Outdated, manual processes
Solution: Self-service portal for travel requests, automated invoice entry with coding, automated approval email trigger to request travel approval
Savings opportunities:

  • Time saved for everyone, from your finance team to the travellers themselves, and approvers.
  • Fewer financial mistakes for invoices being missed or trips not approved in time.


Problem: Inconsistency in process across regions
Solution: New, consistent process in all regions, including one company-approved travel management company.
Savings opportunities:

  • One process to adhere to and communicate = quicker understanding and time freed up.
  • With everyone booking with one company, view all company travel spend and budget in one place.

 

Problem: Missed information from invoices
Solution: Configure an online tool to set up mandatory fields before trips are booked.
Savings opportunities:

  • If bookings are all made through the same channel consistently, the team can quickly see travel spend per reason code.
