Emerging technologies will disrupt the business travel industry. Will your program be ready?

These innovations have the potential to be truly disruptive forces. But precisely how they will change corporate travel, and how travel buyers can prepare, isn’t yet clear.

Quality management in corporate travel

Our recent research conducted with ACTE Global finds that travel managers identify one set metrics they say is important to determining business trip success—but identify a whole different set of metrics they actually measure. It’s time for a new approach.
