Club Travel Corporate is leading the way in multiple travel technology solutions

26 June 2017

Club Travel Corporate is the first South African travel management company to be certified by Sabre Travel Network to fully support its world-leading online corporate travel booking tool, GetThere, and its award-winning travel app, TripCase.

By adding GetThere and TripCase to its multiple travel technology offering, Club Travel Corporate is able to further customise its business travel management solutions to the unique requirements of each of its clients.

“Each client is different. When partnering with a company, we analyse its unique corporate travel needs, then we develop a bespoke strategy, most often a hybrid solution encompassing the right travel technology and an offline support model,” says Wally Gaynor, MD of Club Travel Corporate.

Club Travel Corporate does not force a single GDS (global distribution system) or OBT (online booking tool) on its clients. “This makes us unique in our industry,” says Gaynor. “Technology is ever-changing and improving; current systems continuously evolve and new technology is continuously introduced. Being early and enthusiastic, yet discerning adopters of the best technology on the international market is important, and quite frankly, a price of entry in an industry that is so reliant on technology.”

GetThere gives corporate travel managers and bookers access to a fully responsive in-policy, in-transit online booking tool that boasts an impressive 99,9% uptime. Robust, yet flexible, GetThere can be customised to specific rules based on a company’s travel policy; including traveler profiles, geographic regions, budgets and preferred suppliers.

Through its integration with GetThere, TripCase, the world’s most downloaded travel itinerary management app, enables business travellers to book, change or cancel flights and bookings from their preferred devices; computers, tablets, mobile and smartphones, or even smartwatches and wearables.

Club Travel Corporate clients who choose to migrate from their current OBT to GetThere can be assured of expert support and advice from the Club Travel Corporate consultants, who are all fully-trained on the technology, and who will project manage the customisation of the system to their travel policies, and thereafter provide industry-leading online and offline support. “No matter how advanced and intuitive travel technology becomes, it can never replace the value of human interaction when it comes to real insight, understanding, empathy, service and relationships. The best solutions are always a mix of the two.” concludes Gaynor.
