Real-time reporting on air travel
The proprietary software, designed by Egencia, offers consolidated real-time reporting on air travel. The tool allows the planner to input parameters for arrival and departure dates, ticket cost and airport destination. The software helps corporate clients capture total spend on airfare over a number of departments for both meeting and corporate travel; and allows Egencia to leverage costs for meetings with their global suppliers. The booking tool is a North American initiative and is now in use in the U.S., Canada and Europe. What’s more, it eliminates manual spreadsheet entry.
“Currently, travellers typically book meeting travel and regular business trips through two different providers, which means travellers are inconvenienced and companies lack the visibility to make calculated business decisions,” says Debbie Grossi, director, Egencia Meeting & Incentives North America, based in Mississauga, Ont. “This single source solution helps companies easily identify savings opportunities and make policy adjustments.” Reward Worldwide will be rebranded as Egencia Meetings & Incentives. Utilizing Reward Worldwide’s expertise in premier incentive programmes, Egencia is now able to deliver customized, creative meetings management that also improves and rewards performance. Reward Worldwide was acquired by Egencia in June, 2008, in conjunction with the company’s acquisition of Synergi Global Travel Management.
