Better manage supplier agreements

Raise awareness of total cost of travel

Increase traveler satisfaction

Provide timely, destination-based information

Send targeted email or SMS messages to your travelers and other stakeholders about any travel policy aspect. Its unparalleled flexibility gives you an easy, customizable way to boost your communications effectiveness and achieve results.

Through improved program and supplier compliance, CWT Program Messenger delivers value and compelling ROI. You can expect to save an average of 4 to 7 percent the first year.

GOAL: Raise total cost of travel visibility

Action:

Chris books an international flight.

Impact:

If she doesn’t know about her company’s mobile policy before her trip, Chris may incur unexpected expenses that may not be reimbursable.

Messages:

After booking, Chris receives an email with mobile policy information. A text message sent on the day of her trip reminds her to take action:

Travel reminder: Don’t forget to disable roaming on your mobile phone/other wireless devices before takeoff. Have a safe trip!   

Result:

Chris turns off data roaming and avoids surprise charges. Her company raises awareness of the total cost of travel and keeps employees happy.

GOAL: Improve supplier performance
Action:

Bob books a nonpreferred hotel.

Impact:

His company misses a savings opportunity and experiences reduced negotiating power with preferred hoteliers. 

Message:

Bob receives an email encouraging him to rebook at a preferred hotel to take advantage of negotiated rates:
Thank you for arranging your trip through CWT. Our records show you booked a nonpreferred hotel. Help us maximize savings by changing your reservation to a preferred property …

Result:

He changes his reservation to a preferred hotel, which saves his employer money and supports its supplier commitments. 

GOAL: Increase travel policy compliance
Action:

Stephanie does not book the lowest airfare available. 

Impact:

Her choice affects her company’s negotiated air contracts and savings opportunities. 

Message:

Stephanie receives an email asking her to rebook a more economical flight:

Your flight reservation exceeds the lowest available price. Please change your booking to a less expensive one if possible. Choosing the lowest fare helps us stretch our travel budget.  

Result:

Pre-ticket data triggered the email, so Stephanie is able to change her flight. Over time, her company improves travel policy compliance and controls costs through increased lowest fare acceptance.
