ServicesDelivering a ''best in class'' Travel Management Programme.
No matter what the strategy, or the business, in order for it to work, it must be tailored to suit different market conditions. Travel is no different. With our local knowledge and expertise, our client global programmes are tailored to reflect local markets and to achieve a ‘buy-in’ from local personnel.
By building Global programmes that really work locally, we deliver:
Greater visibility and control of all multinational locations – consolidated global management information and a dedicated global account management structure, clients can introduce a global programme with whatever degree of control they require.
Increased savings from local/global deals and increased policy compliance – access to global reporting enhances data to power improved deals, especially with hotels and ensures that all deals and policies are supported to maximise performance and savings.
Service consistency – all partners have been chosen for their similar approach to providing service excellence. They receive the same client brief and have access to ProfileStar to ensure that all customer expectations are fulfilled to the highest standards.
Access to the best local knowledge – each partner is independently owned and a leader in their respective local market. Unlike manager run subsidiaries of larger multi-nationals, they have a considerable interest in the success of each client account.
