While consumer travel solutions offer a simple, intuitive user experience, some designs used for business travel solutions make trip planning way more stressful than it needs to be. But when you focus on the traveler and take a mobile-first approach, you can help keep bookings on platform and enable your people to seamlessly book a trip all from the palm of their hand.
Join us as we sit down with Megan Greenwell, WIRED interim editor-in-chief, David Grace, Deem president, and Neil Markey, Deem CIO, as they discuss how business travel is changing and what lies ahead, including:
• Mobile-first solutions to correct common travel mistakes
• A focus on customers to help create better business travel
• Dynamic solutions to solve different styles and travel guidelines
