Like many large companies, Textron’s travel policy information is contained in a multi-page document posted on the company’s intranet. Employees weren’t taking advantage of guidance or available offers because they just weren’t taking time to go online and learn about them. That led to higher travel costs and missed opportunities to show travelers how staying within policy benefitted them.
Textron turned to BCD Travel’s TripSource® for help—creating a traveler messaging campaign that delivered information about the company’s airport parking discounts at the moment when travelers needed to know.
Pitney Bowes’ travel policy adhered to best-in-class standards; nonetheless, many of its 15,000 employees weren’t following the policy when booking trips.

The global technology company turned to DecisionSource®, BCD Travel’s proprietary data management tool, to better understand and manage traveler behavior. DecisionSource enabled customized Travel Report Card reports defined by business unit or line of business. Travel program leaders saw which departments had the biggest opportunity for improvement with noncompliant travelers. Then they reached out to those departmental leaders and began educating travelers about the travel policy and why compliance matters—both to their safety and to the company’s bottom line.
