Why SMEs need to get smart about corporate travel
Do you know how much time and money you are spending on business travel? For many small to medium businesses the answer is no, leaving them open to missed savings opportunities.
This is where SMART Corporate Travel can help. Designed specifically for Australian SMEs, this new online travel platform drives significant savings and efficiencies.
Below are five of the many reasons your business could benefit from using SMART Corporate Travel.
1) Reduce costs
With SMART Corporate Travel, SMEs have access to thousands of deals on flights, hotels and car hire for the first time – previously only available to large corporates. These deals can significantly reduce the cost of business travel. Even better, there’s no online booking fees and no lock-in contracts.
The tool also allows businesses to set travel rules based on their specific travel needs and budget. For example, they can block premium classes of travel and set rate-caps on hotels.
2) Save time and increase productivity
Users no longer have to waste time shopping around across multiple websites to find the best fares. Now they can compare thousands of airlines, hotels and car hire options on a single platform and in a single search, and book their entire trip in less than 90 seconds. This frees them up to devote more time to their day jobs. It also eliminates the need for an in-house travel booker, such as a PA.
SMART Corporate Travel’s easy-to-use technology stores up to 100 traveller profiles in one place, leaving less room for error when it comes to spelling names or entering frequent flyer numbers.
SMEs and their employees are on the move. With the SMART Corporate Travel mobile app, businesses can book and manage their travel while on the road, maximising productivity and peace of mind.
4) Consolidate reporting
With SMART Corporate Travel, businesses can access consolidated travel expense reporting for greater visibility and efficiency.
Travel doesn’t always go to plan. By using SMART Corporate Travel businesses have access to 24/7 global travel support wherever and whenever they need it. This provides them with greater reassurance in the event of an emergency and ensures their people receive the appropriate duty of care while they’re on the road.
