Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) has launched CWT For You, a state-of-the-art business travel solution specially designed for SMEs in India, particularly those without a managed travel programme.
Geeta Jain, CEO, India, CWT, said: “Indian SMEs and start-ups have seen tremendous growth in recent years, with many expanding nationwide and some even venturing into international markets. Yet most of these companies have very little control over what they spend on business travel – a significant chunk of their total spend.”
It is estimated that India has close to 50 million SMEs, accounting for nearly 40 per cent of the gross domestic product.
Geeta: getting SMEs on track for managed travel
With no minimum spend threshold or applicable transaction fees, this new service is available through a simple web-based registration and is focused on giving these growing businesses access to some of the benefits of managed travel that larger corporations enjoy. It is available both as a mobile app and an online booking tool.
Benefits for users include access to CWT’s specially negotiated airfares and hotel rates as well as added benefits like in-flight meals, preferred seat selection, redirection to the appropriate websites for visas and travel insurance, and support from CWT’s experienced travel counsellors for complex itineraries.
After bookings have been made, travellers can access their complete itinerary online.
Users will also have access to the CWT AnalytIQs business intelligence tool, which provides real time data allowing companies to monitor their overall travel spend and discover savings opportunities, and track all their travellers.
