“Generally, travel management companies qualify for bulk discounts, preferred rates and priority placement since they buy directly from vendors so frequently." – Deven Crane, Director of Travel Services, Incentive Solutions
ATLANTA (PRWEB) January 06, 2020
For many companies, internally managing their travel program might seem like a more affordable alternative to outsourcing their program to an incentive travel company. However, this might not necessarily be the case. Incentive Solutions’ Director of Travel Services Deven Crane was featured in an article on AmericanExpress.com, where he discussed budget considerations for managing an incentive program internally versus outsourcing it to an incentive travel company.
With over twenty years of experience helping companies design, plan, and execute their incentive travel programs, Deven Crane is familiar with the issues companies face when trying to manage their incentive travel programs on their own. By using a network of trusted vendors, incentive travel companies help businesses save money on travel booking and accommodation and improve efficiency.
“Leading up to the trip, travelers need reminders, they need itineraries, they need to know dress codes, how to navigate the airport, what they should pack, whether they need a visa. The list goes on. Businesses use software to streamline communication all across the board. Travel management is no exception," Crane was quoted as saying in the article. “I think if you really sat down and calculated the man hours, travel management software would more than justify its costs.”
In addition, incentive travel companies help businesses provide safe and memorable experiences for their participants. To quote Deven Crane: “A bad travel experience could damage your brand with clients or sour a high-value employee on your company – or worse.”
