Employee Satisfaction as a Challenge
The satisfaction of employees is of great importance for companies: Specialists are rare and talent is always highly sought after. Companies adapt to the needs of their employees and aim to increase their satisfaction – especially when business travel is concerned. For the majority of business travellers, their company`s support plays a major part in their job satisfaction.
Stressed out due to long searches
Until recently, booking tools for business travellers were not designed according to their needs and were often complicated and tedious. For the most part, business travel tools do not offer the ability to sort search results based on the user’s personal preferences - much like when booking hotels for private travel. Plus the quality of the hotel content is limited.
Compliance decreases, costs increase
The consequence: Employees satisfaction decreases and they book outside the hotel programme and travel policy. Increased direct costs and increasing process costs also arise consequently. The lack of an overview of the employees’ travel behaviour significantly weakens the negotiation position in the procurement process with hotel partners. Moreover, the person responsible for travel can't comply to their duty of care, if they are unable to see from the company data where the business traveller actually is.
Travel Expense Invoice – a tiresome topic
If an employee of your company goes on a business trip, they usually have to pay for their hotel booking in advance. The creation of the invoice on-site delays the traveller’s check out. In addition, the traveller has to use their own work time to write their travel expense report after the business trip – overall, manual tasks that are prone to error and time consuming for the business traveller. There is even more work for your company: the hotel invoice has to be filed, audited and entered in to the accounting system.
