Case study: Virtual collaboration saves firm $5.5 million

Global agricultural company reduces costs, avoids over 900 internal trips.

A global agriculture and commodities firm wanted to cut travel costs; improve employees’ work-life balance and job satisfaction; and reduce the company’s impact on the environment. As detailed in a case study, the company’s travel leaders turned to the Total Collaboration Management experts at BCD Travel’s business travel consultancy unit, Advito.

The results were impressive. The company immediately reduced travel costs and achieved a return on its Advito investment just 30 days after launch. Within five months of implementing its expanded virtual collaboration strategy, the company:

  • Reduced travel costs by an estimated $5.5 million
  • Avoided over 900 internal trips
  • Boosted productivity by redirecting over 15,000 hours of employee travel time
  • Cut carbon emissions equivalent to the annual energy use of 112 American homes

Advito’s Total Collaboration Management team performed as travel program analysts and cultural change agents, ensuring the company’s move to the next level of virtual collaboration was smooth, swift and successful.
