Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) enjoy many benefits when booking and managing travel on online platforms. It is better, in fact, to avoid going through the much less efficient consumer sites to find the invoices afterwards.

Whether you are new to or familiar with these travel management tools, this article will provide you with all the necessary information regarding their main features, partner options and the market as a whole.

What is a business travel management solution?

A business travel management tool is used to book, track, and report on business travel. It also helps automate corporate travel policies and bring travel vendors and invoices together in one place.

The old way used by SMBs: employees had the company’s travel policy on a PDF document or an internal wiki, used some website to book their travel, and then were reimbursed accordingly.

The old method used in ETI / TGI: employees went through agencies or travel software that applied significant markups, commissions and additional customer service costs

The NEW way (for ALL companies): employees make their own reservations using a management platform that integrates the company’s travel policy (and blocks or requires validation for travel not compliant). The tool also includes company payment data, so no refunds are necessary!
