Implementing a Modern Managed Travel Program
Egencia helps companies around the world implement and roll-out modern managed travel programs to save valuable time and money. We are committed to helping our clients build and maintain the best possible programs in the industry.
Setting Up For Success
Proactive training and education practices are key to achieving immediate and widespread adoption of new travel programmes with Egencia. Egencia Account Managers and a dedicated implementation team can prepare and train a client’s travel arrangers and educate their travellers to ensure a successful launch. Egencia boasts 82% average online adoption and 90% average policy compliance.
Business Travel Savings Equation
Egencia clients lower business travel costs immediately by reducing the number and cost of agent-assisted bookings and giving travellers access to Egencia’s extensive inventory of travel options. New efficiencies and real-time travel data (insights into travel-spending changes, rogue travellers and possibilities for negotiated rate agreements) from Egencia help to drive additional savings for our clients, year after year. A typical Egencia client will see 10-15% overall cost savings* after programme implementation.
