Corporate travel software, an example of an online business travel solution, helps organizations better achieve their travel policy goals such as cost control, employee safety, employee time efficiency, value for money, and policy compliance. These improvements in business travel management arise because the processes related to trip booking (and sometimes travel expense management) are placed within a controllable, configurable software environment. Employees using corporate travel software to research and book their business trip are monitored and controlled throughout the process to make sure that they are compliant with the company travel policy, obtaining the correct level of authorization and are otherwise guided in their business travel behaviors according to the strategy laid out in the policy. Travel managers have access to comprehensive reporting, enabling them to target non-compliance and effect policy enhancements. Corporate travel software also gives organizations the ability to keep track of where their employees are for safety and security reasons.
Due to the need to link to multiple travel suppliers and a travel management company (TMC), corporate travel software is hosted by the software vendor and sold on a software as a service (SaaS) model, configured to the client’s requirements.
