Across the world corporate travel expenses are on a rise. The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) in its 2014 BTI outlook has predicted that global business travel expenditure will grow at 6.5% and touch US$1.25 trillion in 2015. The same report says that, in 2014 alone, India Inc. spent US$26 billion in business travel. GBTA estimates that this number will grow at 11.5% CAGR and reach US$45 billion by 2019.
Admins and travel desk managers spend significant time booking, re-booking & coordinating cabs for employees, managing multiple cab vendors and reconciling expense reports. In addition, due to lack of transparency in billing and invoices, finance managers spend a lot of time doing frequent audits. Employees also spend valuable time expensing rides, coordinating with drivers of company taxis & travel desks and reconciling reimbursements.
Our personal travel bookings and billings happen just by a click of a button and yet corporate travels never seem to get any simpler. So, how about a booking system that grants employees the power to choose their own ride types and timings? And how about an expense system that frees employees from on-travel and post-travel hassles? To address these issues employees need a one-stop solution – a travel management system that enriches employee travel experiences while saving their mental energies for real productive work.
