At CTM, we understand that every business is different, so instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, we offer a bespoke consultancy service for our clients. We work with leading cost-management consultancies to deliver a range of travel services, which means we can offer you an easier, safer and cost-effective method to book all your travel needs.
In our experience travel-related costs are often hidden in company expenses, making it a challenge for organisations to report accurately on all aspects of their travel spend. We work with your finance, procurement, travel and management teams to provide a free travel health check based on your current travel expenditure and find ways for you to save money.
Our specialist team take all available data and focus on five key areas of travel spend and policy – analysing and comparing anonymously with similar businesses that we work with. It is then compiled in a comprehensive report that gives you valuable insight into how well managed your programme is and where you can make potential savings.
Benchmarking: We look at everything from average ticket prices and lead-time savings to areas such as route analysis and booking patterns.
Loyalty schemes and supplier management: Hotel loyalty programmes, frequent flyer points and supplier incentive schemes are just some of the ways you can make significant savings.
Technology review: Ensuring your business is up to date with the latest technology is vital, whether it’s for content sourcing and fare visibility or eProcurement integration and authorisation policy compliance.
Carbon footprint and green travel: We look at all aspects of eco travel, from carbon footprint statistics and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting to carbon offsetting and ground vs air savings.
From travel management and hotel reservations to eProcurement solutions and event management, we have a wide range of travel services to suit your business needs.
The 2013 Management Today survey on business costs highlighted that travel, transport and accommodation are the third largest expenditure area in British businesses – only being outspent by HR and property costs.
