The corporate travel environment is changing faster than ever before.Technology is giving travelers more choice in booking travel and companies more choices in how they interact with the customers and off-site employees. However, travel remains the second largest expense (after personnel) in most companies, and corporate travel policies still have an important place in keeping travel costs under control. Financial officers and travel managers still need visibility, control and compliance to achieve their financial--as well as their travel--goals.
Challenges with Corporate Travel Policies
As travel managers know all too well, the proliferation of airline fees over the last few years have increased corporate travel costs dramatically.However, it's difficult to get a handle on these costs--which ones represent a legitimate need and which are more of a luxury--without risking morale. Travel managers shouldn't have to take sides.
