Cost of travel is one of the largest controllable expenses in a company, often ranking second or third among all controllable expenses. An effective travel management program can help improve the bottom line and increase company value. A professionally managed program provides a measurable impact to a company's finances through leveraging and negotiating rates, managing travelers and tickets, monitoring expenditures, providing reporting on travel costs, identifying cost savings, and providing meaningful data and analytics to control and manage spend.
Traditional corporate travel management includes:
♦ Assessing travel needs and development of travel budgets (based on current spend and projected growth).
♦ Aggregating travel needs among departments to leverage total travel spend and negotiate discounts and preferred rates with suppliers.
♦ Managing and optimizing vendor relationships, including negotiated rates and agreements.
Overall savings from a well-managed program can run well into the millions for companies with significant travel. But even smaller companies will benefit from a travel management that can grow with them.
A professional travel management company ensures that travelers adhere to the travel policy to maximize cost savings and provide the greatest protection for travelers. Ensuring compliance with a policy is the best way to optimize travel savings from a management program. Without participation, negotiated discounts and rates are worthless. Policies that require participation by travelers ensure:
♦ Companies get the most from their negotiated rates and discounts.
♦ Maximum leverage for travel spend.
♦ Ticket management and control.
♦ Maximized overrides and incentive payments from negotiated contracts.
♦ Accurate data and reporting.
♦ Meaningful analysis
♦ Policy adherence is vital for a well-managed travel program.
Safety and Efficiency
Beyond cost savings, companies have a duty of care to their employees who travel, and a vested interest in keeping them safe. A well-managed travel program minimizes a company's risk exposure. When a crisis does occur, real time information about travelers is critical to any crisis management plan. The program must provide:
♦ Communications and notifications systems
♦ Employee tracking
♦ Crisis management
♦ Check-in tracking
