TRAVEL MANAGEMENT CASE STUDY
Tender and Consolidate
A leading food production group with multiple production facilities across the UK.
The company had a fragmented approach to travel and lacked visibility of total spend in this category. A large proportion of spend was processed as expenses, employees were using multiple booking tools and there was no coherent travel policy. The travel budget has risen considerably, and the company wanted to increase visibility of spend, reduce costs and improve duty of care.
Standardise travel booking process
Aggregate and consolidate travel requirements to a single TMC (Travel Management Company)
Engage with Travel Management Companies to discuss the company’s travel requirements and tender plan. From this market engagement, a tender document was created which allowed all potential TMC’s to submit a competitive proposal.
A single TMC was awarded a 2+1 year contract with the following benefits:
• Improved duty of care
• A commitment by the TMC to reduce budgeted travel spend by 15%
• Providing invoices that are compliant with VAT reclaim requirements
• Bill-back capability
• Extended payment terms
• Availability of MI to help the company understand its spend profile
