• 3 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Corporate Travel Management Software

    It's hard to imagine just how much technology has changed the way we live. These days, we use technology in our everyday lives so much that we've become dependent. And that's not always a bad thing. Tech has made things faster, more accurate and more efficient. For a travel manager who's constantly planning business trips, these tools can be a great help. Technology has quite literally transformed the world into a village, allowing businesses to have dealings with entities thousands of miles away. And this doesn't come cheap, with businesses spending up to $100 billion a year to shuttle their employees to and fro. While a travel manager could try and handle all the planning involved, investing in travel management software is the best way to stay on top of things. How so? It helps with policy compliance. Achieving near-perfect travel policy compliance can be challenging, especially if your policy is a physical copy gathering dust on a shelf. Travel management software allows you to integrate your policy right into the software. The software will then provide options that are all within policy, ensuring all bookings don't exceed the budget. Travel software will make expense reporting a lot easier. Handling expenses reports can be tedious, especially if there are numerous trips to report. Approving them is even more tedious since doing so unchecked could result in the company reimbursing non-compliant expenses. According to a study conducted by Chrome River, US businesses spend more than $2.8 billion yearly on fraudulent expense reports. Travel management software will grant you access to expense reporting tools that will make expense reporting simpler and faster. On top of that, it will be able to nip non-compliant requests in the bud, allowing you to stay within your budget. It will save you tons of time. If you've booked an overseas trip just for yourself, you know how time-consuming it can be. Now imagine having to constantly do that for your employees, then having to deal with receipts and reimbursement claims when they return. It's a time-consuming process that can be greatly reduced by travel management software. CrewFacilities, for instance, has an automated platform that consolidates all the data into one single point. And since the software can handle large amounts of data, all you'll have to do is press a button, sit back as the data is processed and use it to improve your policy. On top of that, it eliminates the need for manual entry, reducing the chances of crucial errors being made. As a travel manager, it's all about finding ways to reduce expenses while ensuring the business trip's ROI doesn't take a hit. Travel management software is a great way to do that, allowing you to process large amounts of data faster, streamline your expense reporting and ensure near-perfect travel policy compliance.
