Demystifying Managed Travel
Deciding to consolidate your business travel into a managed program can be challenging. Travel managers, procurement professionals, business leaders, and travelers all are key stakeholders; yet the benefits of a managed travel program are not always apparent, and many false perceptions exist.
In this session, attendees heard from companies who have shifted from allowing travelers to book their business travel wherever they would like, to a managed travel program working with a single travel management company. Attendees learned how a managed program can:
- Give greater insight into travel data, and help gain control over costs
- Provide broader access to flights, rooms and cars around the world, at better rates
- Balance a travel policy to accomodate travelers' needs while managing costs
- Create a support network for travel managers and travelers: crisis management, flexible itinerary changes, and more
