How finance teams can proactively manage travel spend before it happens

Article | May 26, 2021

Controlling how employees spend company money on travel has been one of the biggest historic challenges for finance teams. Most company spend is governed by purchase orders, with payments made in relation to specific invoices from the company’s own bank. The data is available transparent and can be analyzed to spot any inconsistencies. But controlling travel spend, which is most company’s largest discretionary spend area, is much harder.

Fahim Khan, product development director for TMC Reed & Mackay, says that right now while there is not much new travel being booked, there are still bookings to be managed. “There’s still quite a bit of volume for us in terms of refunds and making sure people are able to change. There’s also quite a bit of engagement from an account management point of view as we look to advise on what we’re seeing in the industry.

How Google Flights is shaking up the travel Industry

Article | February 12, 2020

The internet is littered with the bodies of companies unable to adapt when Big Tech moved to offer a service for free. Possibly the most famous example in tech history remains Microsoft’s decision in 1996 to give away its browser Internet Explorer bringing Netscape’s skyrocketing share price to an abrupt halt. The rest is history. Although Google’s recent decision to stop charging for leads to airlines and OTAs in Google Flights might look insignificant in comparison, it is sending shockwaves across the travel industry. To understand why, it is important to understand Google Flights’ weight in the airline distribution ecosystem.
