Corporate Travel Online Booking Tools

Use cloud-based software to organize your next company business trip at the click of a button. An online corporate booking tool lets you and your employees gain access to carefully selected flight routes, find preferred hotels and book ground transportation at any time of the day. The best part? Your expenses can be stored and itemized all in one location for ease of access. Take a look at some of the other advantages of new cloud-based technology making business travel easier than ever.

1. Stay on Budget

Concur, our online corporate booking tool for travel, helps you create and stick to your company’s budget. Managers can view itineraries and approve the bookings of all their employees before travel purchases by using a shared online platform. Your company will save money on time spent browsing multiple options manually and increase employee productivity by making booking simple and quick. There’s more:

  • Businesses can use a corporate booking tool to customize trips by adding preferred hotels and flights to reduce your overall spending
  • Applications will monitor trips long-term to create estimates on future travel expenditures
  • Trave policies can be set to exclusively use partnered hotels or rental companies to reduce spending by 10 percent or more

Another feature that makes this tool a great addition to your company is receipts can be kept all together and automatically stored in an online expense folder. This allows companies to greatly reduce the time spent on calculating expenses.

2. Gain Transparency
