Running a growing business means focusing on the the things that matter. Measures like profit; productivity; staff retention and overheads are probably right at the top of the list of things that you think could make or break your business over the next 12 months.
How your team book their business travel has probably never made it on to the aforementioned list, however it’s actually the case that all of your key metrics can be improved by making one small change to how you book business trips.
Consider this typical example, a sales trip to Brussels attended by four of your salespeople.
These four sales people (or maybe one very busy PA) go on to the following websites:
- Expedia to book flights;
- Booking.com to book the hotel;
- thetrainline.com to book the trains.
As a result, they can now expect four separate emails confirming each flight; four for each hotel room and four for each train journey. And, possibly, four different prices for each if they all booked at slightly different times…
It takes an average of 5 minutes to make a travel booking itself, however it can take up to 5 hours of research to find suitable transport and to compare your options, meaning that by the end of the process your team will have spent a total of 20 hours booking their travel and printing email confirmations.
