Club Travel Corporate has announced the addition of a new online booking tool ‘GetThere’ to their multiple corporate travel technology offering.
This new booking tool, which can be integrated with the award-winning travel app, TripCase, allowing full customisation with company policy, hereby further tailoring Club Travel Corporate’s business travel management solutions. Club Travel Corporate is the first South African travel management company to be certified by Sabre Travel Network to fully support their world-leading online corporate travel booking tools.
“Each client is different. When partnering with a company, we analyse its unique corporate travel needs, then we develop a bespoke strategy, most often a hybrid solution encompassing the right travel technology and an offline support model,” says Wally Gaynor, MD of Club Travel Corporate.
Club Travel Corporate does not force a single GDS (global distribution system) or OBT (online booking tool) on its clients. “This makes us unique in our industry,” says Gaynor. “Technology is ever-changing and improving; current systems continuously evolve and new technology is continuously introduced. Being early and enthusiastic, yet discerning adopters of the best technology on the international market is important, and quite frankly, a price of entry in an industry that is so reliant on technology.”
GetThere gives corporate travel managers and bookers access to a fully responsive in-policy, in-transit online booking tool that boasts an impressive 99,9% uptime. Robust, yet flexible, it can be customised to specific rules based on a company’s travel policy; including traveler profiles, geographic regions, budgets and preferred suppliers.
Through its integration with GetThere, TripCase, the world’s most downloaded travel itinerary management app, enables business travellers to book, change or cancel flights and bookings from their preferred devices; computers, tablets, mobile, and smartphones, or even smartwatches and wearables.
Club Travel Corporate clients who choose to migrate from their current OBT to GetThere can be assured of expert support and advice from the Club Travel Corporate consultants, who are all fully-trained on the technology, and who will project manage the customisation of the system to their travel policies, and thereafter provide industry-leading online and offline support.
“No matter how advanced and intuitive travel technology becomes, it can never replace the value of human interaction when it comes to real insight, understanding, empathy, service, and relationships. The best solutions are always a mix of the two,” concludes Gaynor.
