Travel managers demand mobile
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.
