Strategic Travel Management

In an age of increasing focus on process efficiency and cost containment, It is surprising that so many companies have relinquished the control of their travel expenditure to their travel agent. This reliance on your travel agent, as the sole source of travel management information and knowledge, could leave you vulnerable and possibly exposed to unnecessary risks.

Whether you accept it or resist it, travel distribution is undergoing significant change and will have a direct impact on your bottom line.
