Keeping your business travellers happy now means spending less


I feel happy when I gain new experiences and insights, and challenge my boundaries while travelling for business. However, returning from a trip and claiming expenses can be rather painful. I’m still using the ‘envelope method’, a simple but low-tech way to organise myself and to get my expense report turned in on time. When I don’t do it, I have to hunt down receipts in bags, pants pockets, and purses, then figure out where that 5€ went that I forgot I used to tip hotel staff. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

And I’m not alone. In fact when it comes to business travel, 71% of corporate travellers cited convenience as playing a large role when making bookings, according to a new study by the GBTA Foundation and HRS. This same study found that automated expense reporting played a significant role for 52% of business travellers. These factors are just a few that have led organisations to seek new tools that allow them to control direct and indirect travel costs, and enable a smooth travel experience, while helping employees personalise their travel in the most efficient way.

In response to these trends, we’ve launched Amadeus cytric Travel & Expense. This agile solution combines both an Online Booking Tool and an Expense Management System in one integrated solution. This allows corporations to manage their travel programme in one platform and through mobile, increasing traveller efficiency on the go – no more losing receipts!

Full integration across different stages of travel programs and interactive business intelligence dashboards help travel managers optimise travel policy, monitor costs, and reduce travel spend.
