Modern Travel
Despite opening up a new level of efficiency, there are still many things that the internet and mobile apps cannot account for no matter how many options they include when booking a travel package online — a particular issue for business travel where ticket changes, complex itineraries, and last-minute traveler needs require real interaction. Regardless of the technology you have access to, a travel management company must understand the time needed to maximize your travel dollar is precious. The next generation of travel management is about providing the right technology infrastructure and balancing both automation and decades of experience in the industry. One example would be helping establish incentive programs for your team that reinforces your company’s policies and culture. Many agencies are using technology as a replacement for services they provided in the past when the reality is that there needs to be both technology and a live agent available at all times. Brickell Travel Management provides a model that emphasizes this balance and holds a genuine stake in the success of your company’s travel program. Make sure when you’re in the market for a travel management company that they are just as interested in your success as you are and don’t supplement your personalized needs with a machine.
