Buying Business Travel | November 18, 2019

Travel technology provider Amadeus and business advisory firm KPMG (UK) have announced a collaboration aimed at bringing business travel and global compliance together. Through a combined technological offering, the companies will enable clients and their employees to book their business travel and receive immigration, tax and regulatory assessments and assistance throughout the journey. Companies using both Amadeus and KPMG business travel technology can elect to have their employee travel data sent directly by Amadeus Cytric Travel & Expense to KPMG Link Business Traveller for assessment. The latter system can then identify requirements at the point of booking or trip planning, triggering the next steps to ensure compliance with the necessary requirements ahead of their trip.
