KHQ Lawyers is a top-ranked, fast-growing commercial law firm in Melbourne, Australia.
KHQ was founded in 2006 by two top-tier and in-house attorneys and has since grown to a company of over 80 employees with top-tier and in-house experts who know how to travel the journey alongside their clients.
They place a high value on getting to know their clients and personalizing their services to their specific requirements. They collaborate extensively with their clients to ensure that their services and solutions are relevant to their goals and serve their best interests.
KHQ Lawyers is rapidly growing and their clients are regularly increasing. With how their business currently operates, KHQ Lawyers is in constant business travel.
Business travel is critical for them to have a personal engagement that lays the groundwork for a future or current relationship with clients and partners.
Additionally, constant business travel and meetings are required to prevent misunderstanding and foster a sense of unity for the business to consistently provide excellent legal services and solutions.
When it comes to client communication, video conferencing and online calls are wonderful ways to connect when distant working, but for KHQ Lawyers, nothing replaces real-life human interaction.
That’s why they need to have an easy way to travel and make it to their meetings.
Booking and Making Changes Is Time Consuming
Candice Perkins, Financial Controller of KHQ Lawyers, is in charge of the company's corporate travel. She used to use Flight Centre to manage and book business travel for both her employees and herself.
However, with a busy company such as KHQ, it's not a surprise that travel plans can often change.
Whenever she had to urgently change or update their bookings, she would have to wait for the travel center to make any changes or updates to her reservations.
As a busy professional who manages a growing company, it became a stressful and time-consuming booking procedure for her.
Lack of Visibility With Corporate Travel Expenses
Corporate travel expenditures are one of the most expensive and difficult to control expenses in most businesses. As the Financial Controller of the company, one of Candice’s major responsibilities is to control and oversee company travel spending.
When using Flight Centre, she was dissatisfied with the reporting capabilities and ability to track money spent on travel. She believed there was a lack of visibility, and she had difficulty regulating the finances due to the little data accessible.
Lack of Customer Support
About the issue of a time-consuming update and booking procedure, one challenge Perkins faced was a lack of customer service when she needed help with something related to the travel program and the travel app; there was no one accessible to contact right away.
As a Financial Controller of an expanding company, every adjustment and action are critical; there should be no delay to resolve any problems.
However, the lack of customer support from her previous travel management company led to time being wasted which can negatively affect their business.
Candice Perkins began looking for a different type of travel management firm and came upon Locomote. As a top-ranked world-class corporate travel management firm, Locomote provided all of the solutions that Perkins needed and offered services that her prior travel management company couldn't provide.
