Today’s travel programs have a number of moving parts and an argument can be made that the servicing of these parts is best left to industry experts. Savvy travel managers know a travel program is so much more than booking tickets, reserving hotel rooms and facilitating expenses. Today, the well managed travel program provides proactive account management, data-rich reporting, and technology-driven solutions.

Just as it makes sense for a trained professional to service my new sedan, protecting my investment, it makes sense for an experienced Travel Management Company (TMC) to manage your travel program, optimizing your travel spend.

​Today’s TMCs are partners with their clients, acting as program stewards to your executives and advocates with your suppliers. More than finding the cheapest fare – and a reputable TMC will always offer the lowest logical fare - a travel program offers technology, analytics, partnership, and a voice at the travel table.

Managing a travel program, like servicing the family vehicle, used to be less complicated. Everyone could do it! But just as vehicles have become sophisticated computers on wheels, requiring a very specific skill set to maintain them, so has the travel program evolved into a complex entity, with numerous moving parts and ever changing inputs.

A travel program touches numerous parts of an organization. The executive team looks for compliance to achieve program objectives; finance looks for savings and reporting; operations looks for efficiencies; the travellers look for service, support, technology, and ease of use and the entire company wants a partner they can trust.

You wouldn’t give your brand new vehicle to just anyone to fix or maintain. Why wouldn’t you treat a program responsible for your company’s travel spend and the well-being of your travellers the same?
