“The line between Travel and Expense is blurring as technology continues to innovate. The continued growth of social media, use of mobile applications, and availability of data, coupled with an unsteady economy and global safety concerns make managing a global T&E program difficult. Acquis can help.”
--Debra Moss, Managing Director
Each day, new technology and telecommunication options shrink and flatten our world while simultaneously expanding and globalizing our economy. Companies are breaking down borders, expanding outward to explore new business opportunities, and forming new partnerships. As a result of these changes and the associated impact on travel and collaboration, organizations are re-thinking their travel, expense, and virtual collaboration programs, and moving from traditional travel management to a managed global travel program.
A managed global travel program is proactive, not reactive. The data extracted from an enterprise global expense management system provides the visibility into hotel, air, and car spending needed to negotiate corporate rates with travel vendors. The data also enables companies to make strategic program decisions around policies, processes, and systems. A mature managed global travel program is strategic and takes into consideration all aspects of travel, including buying travel, traveling, travel reimbursement, processing and analyzing travel spend, and using the data gathered during the entire cycle to improve future travel buying. Companies that have implemented these global travel programs understand that viewing the travel and expense program as an integrated system enables them to constantly improve their travel, expense, and virtual collaboration programs through effective controls, clear policies, and strong communication.
