OBTs are a powerful weapon in a Travel Management Program’s arsenal – saving companies time and money through lower transaction fees, policy enforcement, unused ticket management, and contract savings.
Concur is one of the industry’s leading online booking tools where travelers can book domestic and international flights, reserve rental cars and make hotel and rail reservations 24 hours a day, seven days a week– all from their desktops, smart phones and tablets. Concur’s pre-trip approval system supports single and multi-tiered approval hierarchies and documents each reservation with the time, date and authorizer comments associated with each trip. The traveler’s information is stored in their personal profile and can be updated at any time and will automatically sync into CTP’s global distribution system.
With GetThere, you’ll get a strategic tool that can streamline processes, improve supplier and contract management, and drive adoption, policy compliance, and most importantly savings.
NuTravel offers an advanced suite of highly adaptable booking and corporate travel management solutions designed to surpass business requirements while helping to improve your bottom line.
Several ways in which CTP supports and enhances Online Travel include:
CTP offers our clients a customized, co-branded travel portal with the ability for user messaging updates, links to Travel Policy, and Concur online booking tool. CTP’s Web Development Manager will customize the web portal to the exact wants and needs of your company. Additionally, our Web Development Manager is responsible for updating and maintaining the site.
While many TMCs provide their clients an allotted amount of training time (per their purchase package), CTP will always provide complimentary training – whether that be the initial implementation training to administrators, or large lectures and demonstrations to the actual travelers, or even re-fresher training classes for administrative assistants. CTP is committed to making your online travel program a success.
With CTP there are no hidden fees or extra surcharges to help set-up the travel program. Your company will pay for the services they receive on a per transaction basis. Unlike many TMC’s, CTP does not charge for the set-up of an online booking tool, or implementation, a savings of over $2,000.00.
Should a traveler have a question in regards to their OBT, CTP’s Online Support Desk is available for their use (at no extra cost). CTP offers an online booking help desk from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM CST, Monday through Friday. The support will include assistance with the use of and navigation within the online tool, assistance with retrieving forgotten passwords, establishing profiles, setting travel arranger privileges to authorize or delegate travel permissions and other assistance as appropriate.
CTP will customize, maintain and update your company’s Online Travel site. CTP’s Technology Solutions Manager need only be added as an administrator, and CTP will take care of all technology needs of your OBT (at no charge).
