Travel experts and specialized analytics drive compliance and savings

Our full set of capabilities helps you manage a complex area of spend that personally impacts employees.

Proliferating fees and compliance challenges

Travel managers face challenging times with air carrier mergers and joint ventures having shrunk the supply base, and airlines adding new fees and surcharges. Hotel occupancy rates have continued to increase. To compound the market complexity, travel services can be purchased by hundreds or thousands of employees, each with his own preferences. Without deep expertise in the travel industry and close travel policy monitoring, organizational spending behavior can drive up incremental costs and steal budget dollars from revenue-generating business activities. Helping your business meet its strategic goals while stretching travel budgets requires experienced travel procurement professionals – that’s where Procurian® can help.
