A travel program motivated employee use and enabled the business to leverage it’s expenditures to save money. We helped create and drive a winning strategy with continual improvement and a custom change management program that enabled the business to reach or exceed goals.
We helped drive improvements to automate processes with technology, reduce wasteful resources and focus on areas including meetings & events, virtual payments, travel management services and custom data reporting.
Uber launched their first managed travel program, travel policy, travel management company, expense system, online booking tool, corporate card, online employee custom portal and 24/7 service center in 80+ countries. We helped Uber reach this global initiative as a team, at a pace to service their exponential growth.
We address the need to motivate employees to book travel in their existing managed travel program without “mandating”. We helped implement an extensive RFP for an online booking tool (OBT) for travel and implemented this tool in 40+ countries. We helped consolidate their supplier mix to meet and exceed their business goals.
