Why an Unmanaged Travel Program Doesn't Scale

Many businesses still ask their employees to book corporate travel the same way they’d book a personal vacation and expense it later. The trouble with this approach is lack of spend visibility for management and non-compliance with company policies. A managed travel platform, like TripActions, combines the ease of booking on consumer travel sites with the enterprise grade tracking your business requires.

Managing Corporate Travel 101: Cost

Managing travel is ultimately about managing the bottom line. Travel management companies (TMCs), like TripActions, have unparalleled access to the lowest fares and rates. This means your employees can save far more money booking on TripActions than through consumer websites, and the savings start to add up from day one.

Management Controls & Visibility

Do you know where your travelers are? Stay ahead of potential travel safety issues by setting appropriate corporate travel controls and policies. A TMC allows travel managers to configure flexible policies and provides traveler incentives to help better align booking decisions to company goals, all while ensuring managers have visibility into employee travel. When employees are on the road, our live traveler map gives admin an at-a-glance view of all current travelers.

Adapt your travel policy to curb costs and protect travelers

TripActions gives you the flexibility to build travel policies that align with your business needs. Easily restrict travel to locations with traveler safety warnings and enforce granular policies for travel by booking type or employee role. Policy settings are self-serve, which means you can react quickly as situations occur.

Safety & Security

Travel can sometimes be risky. Your business loses key visibility into a traveling employee’s current location when they book their own travel outside of a TMC. And should the worst happen, suddenly you have an employee you can’t account for. Avoid this scenario by utilizing a managed travel platform like TripActions.

Employee safety and well-being is always something that’s at the forefront of my mind. When you’re holding major events like ComplexCon where 75% of your employee population is traveling to a location, TripActions is an invaluable tool. Some of our team members simply couldn’t be effective in their jobs without it.”
