Travel man­agers de­mand mo­bile

Travel Daily - - News -

THE cor­po­rate travel mar­ket is in­creas­ingly de­mand­ing mo­bile tech­nol­ogy, with a Sabre re­port show­ing 80% of travel man­agers rate this as their top pri­or­ity.

Sabre’s 2017 Asia Pa­cific Cor­po­rate Trav­eller study high­lights the im­por­tance of a “mo­bile first strat­egy” and also says 66% of travel man­agers want al­ter­na­tive forms of pay­ment tech­nol­ogy as a high pri­or­ity.

Among other find­ings, the study says al­most half of cor­po­rate trav­ellers are de­vi­at­ing from their cor­po­rate travel poli­cies.

“The in­creas­ing in­ci­dence of non-com­pli­ance is the re­sult of cor­po­rate trav­ellers book­ing out of pol­icy, where they ex­tend busi­ness trips to in­clude some leisure time at their own ex­pense,” said Sabre vp of global ac­counts Jason Tooth­man.
