In the past, coordinating business trips often meant navigating a labyrinth of booking sources. Flights were booked on one platform, hotels on another, and ground transportation somewhere else entirely. This fragmented approach not only led to confusion but also made it challenging to ensure that all elements of a trip aligned seamlessly.
With ITILITE’s centralized booking system, corporate travel coordinators can now manage the entirety of a trip within a single interface. From selecting the most cost-effective flights to booking accommodations that align with company policies, all tasks are streamlined in one place.
ITILITE takes a proactive stance in ensuring that company travel policies are adhered to by utilizing a blend of software checks, real-time monitoring, and smart algorithms. Whenever there’s a travel request or a booking, the system swings into action, subjecting it to a thorough policy examination.
This covers a range of factors, including the travel class, accommodation choices, and predefined spending limits. The moment the system finds a violation of these policies, it sends out alerts to notify the employee and approver.
A streamlined travel request and approval process eliminates bottlenecks, reduces delays, and eases corporate travel coordinators responsibilities. When an employee initiates a travel request in ITILITE, the system takes charge. It automatically routes the request through a predefined approval chain, ensuring that the right stakeholders review and approve it promptly.
As each request progresses through the approval chain, it moves efficiently from one approver to the next. This process minimizes the chances of requests getting stuck or delayed. Further, the system sends alerts to approvers when it’s their turn to review and approve a request.
Moreover, ITILITE allows you to customize approval workflows to match their specific hierarchy and policies. Whether it’s a simple one-step approval or a multi-tiered process involving multiple departments, the system can be tailored to meet the organization’s unique needs.
ITILITE doesn’t just collect data; it transforms it into actionable insights. Travel coordinators can access detailed reports that encompass a wide range of key performance indicators (KPIs).
These KPIs may include department-wise average spending per trip, travel patterns, and more. Plus, corporate travel coordinators gain real-time visibility into travel plans, expenses, and business travel booking. Armed with this information, you can make data-driven decisions that drive meaningful improvements in the travel process.
You can also schedule weekly or monthly reports in your email from over 100 customizable reports tailored to your needs.
Perhaps the most significant benefit is that ITILITE’s robust support infrastructure removes the burden of handling user queries and issues from corporate travel coordinators’ shoulders. They can confidently direct users to the support team, knowing that their colleagues will receive swift and effective assistance.
ITILITE’s in-house support team takes pride in its industry-leading response time of just 10 seconds. This near-instantaneous response ensures that users don’t have to wait when they need help urgently. It’s a testament to the system’s commitment to delivering timely assistance.
Flight Re-Shop refers to the intelligent, automated process of rebooking flights when a lower fare becomes available before the departure date. ITILITE constantly monitors flight prices, and if it identifies a price drop for a booked flight, it takes swift action.
The potential for savings with flight price re-shop is substantial. Corporate travel coordinators can save thousands of dollars or more over time, all without having to actively track fare changes or manually rebook flights. This feature ensures that travel budgets are optimized and every opportunity for savings is realized.
