How to Save Money on Corporate Travel
In the corporate world, efficiency is never enough; there are always new targets to reach and more costs to cut.
At the most rudimentary level, you cut costs by booking travel packages at the lowest price points. However, if you look at the big picture, prices are not the only thing to consider. If it were, you could house traveling staff in backpacker hostels.
Solely hunting for bargains is too simplistic an approach.
The following checklist looks at the better ways that Adelman can help your company save money on corporate travel.
Update Your Travel Policy:
Every company that regularly sends employees on business trips should have a clear corporate travel policy. A good policy will ensure that employees understand and follow protocols. At the same time, your policy should also make flexibility options clear.
Thus, consider an annual review of your company’s policy. Yearly updates will keep the policy in line with travel industry changes. In addition, it provides a great opportunity to look for gaps that provide hidden cost-cutting opportunities.
Adelman can offer excellent consultancy services. We can keep your travel policy in line with the trends. When you partner with us, you can enjoy the luxury of managing a corporate travel program using the same model that Fortune 100 companies use.
We can even incorporate your travel policy into Ava, our proprietary travel app, so that your travelers are reminded of and stay inside your guidelines.
This means easy booking, tight compliance, and enough flexibility so that traveling staff can accomplish their mission with optimal support.
Use Tools That Prevent or Manage Flight Disruptions:
From the weather to technical issues, airline disruptions can affect all stakeholders.
In a paper called “Shaping the Future of Airline Disruption Management (IROPS)”, the author stated that one of the four breakthrough solutions to disruptions is passenger visibility. That means that travelers should be able to receive support in real-time, in case situations such as delays and cancelations occur.
Adelman prides itself on its ability to offer an in-depth solution to managing disruption and travel risks.
Our proprietary app, Ava, can provide you with the likelihood your flight will be canceled, using a scale ranging from 1-10. Our agents will work with you to secure a new flight if necessary, so you never miss an important meeting. We will never miss an opportunity to save you and your company time and money.
Invest in Managed Online Booking Solutions:
A good online booking portal should be easy to use. It should also integrate perfectly with existing HR, ERP, and expense management systems. In addition, it should grant customers access to a range of deals that fit their expense budgets while ensuring optimal quality for the price.
On their own, these tools are revered as market leaders in the corporate travel booking industry. They provide a wide range of point-and-click services and come with baked-in, 24-hour, rapid-response support that covers everything from itinerary changes to emergency expense authorization.
A bonus only available to Adelman customers is that we act as an advisory board member for a wide range of companies. That gives us access to cutting edge industry information that gets passed directly into our vast array of customer resources.
