A professional implementation for a high utilization rate

The implementation of an Online Booking Engine (OBE) or travel management system allows for process optimization, more comfort for the traveller and savings on travel expenses.

What future travel organization should look like and what savings can be achieved will be analyzed in detail prior to the system’s implementation. The main question is whether the employee will book his own travel online or whether it will be booked at a central location. This decision also affects the design of the system. Thus, the integrated travel policy control system and control of providers for self-bookers is of greater importance than for those authorized to book for colleagues.

Before implementation, the following points must therefore be highlighted in detail, depending on business needs:

  • Analysis of the necessary business settings and processes

  • Elaboration of the implementation plan and the pilot phase

  • Definition of those authorized to book, self-bookers, travel managers and administrators

  • Elaboration of training concepts with classroom, online and video training

  • Coordination of the communication plan
