What exactly are corporate travel booking tools? These platforms - otherwise known as online booking tools - are digital solutions companies use to manage their corporate travel needs.
If you’re a growing company it might be time to move your employees away from consumer sites like Expedia and booking.com, and onto a platform that allows you more control over your travel spend.
Here are some points to consider when deciding whether or not to use a corporate travel booking tool.
It provides a centralized platform. Implementing a corporate travel solution like Deem allows you to plan, manage, and support your travelers from a single platform.
Travel policy compliance. Giving employees access to policy compliant choices increases your overall travel savings.
Direct savings. When travelers book online you reduce your travel agency workload – and your fees.
Indirect savings. Deem Work Fource reminds travelers to book in advance, which allows them to take advantage of lower fares, while still complying with company travel policy.
Increasing employee productivity.Booking travel can be a time-consuming process, especially if your travelers are visiting multiple sites and price shopping across the internet. By mandating the use of a single, company approved corporate booking tool, you save your employees the hassle of cobbling their trips together from a variety of sources.
Travel spend analysis. One of the key benefits is convenient and cost-effective business travel reporting. Collecting and analyzing data from trips helps companies study employee bookings, detect trends, minimize costs, and find potential supplier partnerships.
