With the onset of the pandemic, the seemingly simple and innocent concept of initiating travel was made more challenging. Companies began increasing their scrutiny of expenses, and they were giving more thought to sending people on the road and where they were headed. Acendas Travel’s reaction was to create an online resource to manage the pre-trip approval process to ensure proper documentation, routing, feedback and ultimately approval or disapproval.
Through our parent company, BCD Travel, we provide our travelers the BCD Travel Trip Authorizer. Our clients look to us to help with approval processes that could be flexible and easy to implement. BCD Travel Trip Authorizer is compatible with every online booking tool, and can be implemented with each client’s specific business rules for the appropriate approval steps. It works across global markets, and doesn’t require any log-in for travelers. In fact, it goes right to the traveler’s email to let them know approval status and any next steps that might be required.
And by the way, the last thing a traveler wants upon return is to scramble for receipts and documentation for the accounting staff. Through our pre-trip invoicing system, we automatically send to you an invoice for your travel.
