T&E Gets More Strategic
Mechanicsburg, PA (Vocus) July 23, 2010
Puridiom, a leading e-Procurement software provider, offers Travel Management to manage travel for corporate travelers. Puridiom Travel Management (PTM) is a unique approach to travel management that applies proven procurement practices to corporate business travel, helping businesses to implement and adhere to an effective travel management policy. PTM enables corporate clients to reduce their overall travel spend by up to 30%, combining the efficiency of self booking with the expertise of easily accessible travel agents.
Corporate travel is the largest controllable expense, yet it is one of the most difficult categories for procurement executives to get under control. Puridiom Vice President & COO Al Jacobs recently commented in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive article, "T&E Gets More Strategic” by Andrew K. Reese, “Travel procurement is made all the more complicated because of the constantly fluctuating costs, unanticipated interruptions and changes, as well as the complexity of booking multiple domestic and international trips. But the prospect of driving substantial savings is prompting increasing numbers of procurement executives to take a hard look at ways to rein in travel spend.” The article went on to highlight approaches to this difficult expense category and strategies being employed by companies.
Puridiom Travel Management has taken all of these factors into consideration during the development of the solution. Partnering with ATRIIS Technologies, a developer of on-demand software solutions for the corporate travel industry, Puridiom applied their procurement expertise to come up with a product that controls and tracks expenses, but also keeps the travelers needs at the forefront. The result is a product that successfully controls, tracks and manages T&E according to pre-determined travel policies, giving management the cost of travel BEFORE the travel occurs. In addition to the technology, Puridiom offers the strategies to build sound travel policies to support the technology. “The combination of technology and process improvements is what really drives bottom line savings,” says Jacobs.
