"Navigating The New Normal" - Why You Need a Travel Management Company like Uniglobe Travel

February 09, 2021

Whether you are a small business or a global conglomerate, the corporate travel landscape has never looked so foreign. In fact, an astounding 96 percent of travel managers surveyed by SAP Concur felt that their companies were not adequately prepared to tackle the travel problems posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To successfully navigate this new terrain of unexplored opportunities and challenging pitfalls, businesses must first find the right tools and strategic partners for support.  Uniglobe Travel can provide both of these: innovative tools and expert partnership. Below we’ve outlined a few key reasons why working with us is critical to the recovery of your travel program and to helping you meet your business goals.

Mitigate Risk and Keep Travellers Safe

The biggest concern to the future of corporate travel is to ensure the safety and wellness of employees.  The corporate traveller must feel safe as they return to the road.  You must build Trust and Confidence in your travel program or its potential recovery will be significantly compromised.

Uniglobe provides essential tools for your company’s compliance with duty of care responsibilities.  Manage your company’s liability by insisting travellers book through the Uniglobe Travel program online in a controlled and safe environment. 

Uniglobe Travel can help you manage risks and support your program with end-to-end processes to ensure traveller safety.  Including:

  • E-travel Advisories
  • E-travel tracker dashboard
  • E-travel tracker map
  • E-travel reports and traveller contact details

Uniglobe Travel has also created easy to access Covid-19 Information pages on our website that guides employees on the road through the new travel journey and outlines the most recent requirements and restrictions. 

Manage Traveller Experience

Establishing clear safety parameters provides a strong base for creating travel experiences that meet the needs and expectations of each and every traveller. Uniglobe Travel can provide a consistent but flexible approach to creating a smooth and comprehensive experience.

We focus on delivering exceptional service and engaging travellers using a range of technologies and methods including:

Increase Efficiency through Technology

This is a daunting reality to consider, but investing in the right tools and technology can help streamline workflow.
