Challenge

Identify a more efficient, reliable pre-trip approval process; gain deeper visibility into travel spend with on-demand reporting, and increase travelers’ confidence.

Solution

Before Egencia, Club Assist managers were spending 25% of their work week approving employee travel. By leveraging Egencia’s TripController, this process now takes just seconds and can be accomplished on a mobile device. Thanks to Egencia, Club Assist reported 11% lower average domestic ticket prices, 21% lower average hotel rates, and 39% lower average daily car rates.
