The Challenge: Managing Corporate Travel
Managing business and team travel can be challenging. The former CAPI travel management system had employees seeking information all over the place.
There was no single method or resource they could use to obtain information such as booking schedules or flight information.
Lack of Support
Travel agents' availability and a 24/7 service model are hard to come by, and when they do, they're pricey.
Most travel agencies only work within regular working hours. As a business traveller, having no access to travel agents outside of work hours is a major challenge, particularly during business travel disruptions and unexpected changes.
Given how important business travel is, nothing is more aggravating than dealing with a travel agent who is unable to make things happen quickly. The time and convenience factor of having someone to plan their business travel has quickly faded and turned into frustration.
Most of the time, it forces the company to do their booking and itinerary from scratch, which is inconvenient and time-consuming.
Expenses Are Hard to Track
Corporate travel can be expensive, so it's critical for a company like CAPI to keep track of costs and monitor where the money is going. Travel agencies' expense reports can be inefficient, and the finance team had to make numerous changes to provide the right reports.
With having difficulties in tracking travel expenses, travel management has become a more difficult task for everyone, especially the finance team.
