When it comes to travel, uncertainty is the only certainty. From weather systems to international incidents, there are forces impacting your employees’ travel arrangements that are beyond your control. What you can control, however, is the corporate travel partner you’ve enlisted, and the systems they’re leveraging to support your travelers in the event of travel disruptions.
“If your employees are booking their own travel, or your managed travel program is underutilized, you have little to no chance of understanding where your employees are when a disruption occurs,” said Rob Smith, Business Development Manager, The Travel Team.
Your employees are your responsibility while they are traveling for business so having a resource in place to identify who is impacted by a disruption is paramount to minimizing the interruption and ensuring the safety of travelers. By designing and deploying a managed travel program, you’re taking proactive steps to manage and mitigate risk where possible.
The Travel Team will design a travel management strategy that is tailored to the unique travel needs and risks of your business. We have trusted industry resources and best-in-class tools to address your needs across the entire duty of care spectrum.
“Leveraging a robust travel platform such as SAP Concur, The Travel Team has the ability to capture the data needed to identify where travelers are and employ systems that can determine potential impact to their travel plans,” said Rob.
In the event of a travel disruption, our agent support team is always available to identify solutions and keep travelers informed throughout the re-accommodation process. No matter the day, no matter the hour, your employees have access to live support to help them through any travel issues they’re experiencing.
“It’s reassuring to have someone to talk to; someone that answers the phone and knows who you are, where you’re headed and your travel preferences,” said Rob. “Without an experienced partner that can be entrusted with the task of getting travel plans back on track; your travelers may be left floundering and frustrated.”
