Now more than ever, duty of care is an essential responsibility for corporations to protect traveling employees. At Acendas Travel, we pride ourselves on being a top corporate travel agency with the tools to help clients meet their obligations and reduce travel risk.
As a corporate travel agency, we’ve implemented the following programs to help you maintain communication and assist travelers.
Mission Control is the proprietry technology platform Acendas Travel utilizes to assist travelers with their needs pre-, during and post-trip. It begins with ticketing and reservations where our team monitors air fares and hotel rates for cost savings opportunities. During the trip, we are able to contact travelers should there be a disruption in service and provide alternative actions to ensure arrival. Finally, we survey our travelers to evaluate the performance of various air, car rental and hotel partners and that of ourselves as well. As a leading corporate travel agency, we provide clients with 24/7 worldwide support, real-time flight status, and more. If travelers experience a crisis, we are on hand to deliver immediate assistance.
The TripSource mobile app provides travelers with one destination for managing their trips. Upload various information, including itineraries, reservations, meeting agendas, daily schedules, and more. Also, TripSource is a total trip management platform with tools for travel arrangers. It’s never been easier to keep your travelers in the know while they are on the go.
Our proactive communications service is for travelers who have flights canceled or delayed. In these instances, ReRoute sends the traveler a text alert. The text includes a link showing options for flight alternatives for rebooking on the same carrier or a different one. Additionally, the traveler can communicate directly with an agent by text. They can also make a direct call or request a callback. This feature gives travelers help right on the spot.
