Adherence to Policy.
Analyzing Spend vs. Budget.
Identifying Areas of Weakness.
These are three cost-bloating areas that often get pushed to the bottom of a growing to-do pile. Many travel managers find themselves lacking in the technology to efficiently and effectively track proper utilization of the company travel policy. Violations often go unnoticed causing budget overages and no channel for proper resolution is established.
As a travel manager, you professionally attempt to juggle the travel needs of a large staff, managing the budget and all of the other time-consuming intricacies that your job entails. No one understands this more than the expert support team at Acendas.
We are a travel manager’s best friend. We keep travelers compliant and you in the know. Click each area to see how.
Problem: No Traveler Compliance
Acendas Solution: We work with the Travel Manager to understand the culture of the company and then assist in establishing a travel policy. Institute an umbrella policy for all employees that divisions can restrict if necessary, but not relax. Acendas also provides travel policy management and enforcement assistance.
Problem: The Need for Cost Savings
Acendas Solution: Utilizing both online and agent assisted bookings, we help grow adoption levels within your travel program. Consolidating your purchasing under one umbrella results in greater leverage in negotiations with airline, hotel and car vendors.
Problem: Inconsistent Service/Call Center
Acendas Solution: We work with our clients to provide customized service and solutions. Our agent-assisted reservations are not sent to a call center. Acendas also provides after hours emergency service and an after hours elite service that provides a dedicated counselor to meet your executives’ needs.
Problem: Stranded Traveler on the Road
Acendas Solution: We provide 24/7 worldwide en route services for travelers. Acendas provides real-time flight information that is mobile enabled. In addition, we communicate during global travel disruptions to affected clients and contact travelers accordingly.
Problem: Incomplete Reporting System
Acendas Solution: Strategic data capture and analysis provided through Acendas’ DecisionSource® reporting system will be vital to the efficient management of your travel program. Monthly, quarterly and year-end-data performance reviews will reveal key opportunities to drive additional savings, leverage spending, gain program compliance, and possibly capture rogue spending. Acendas’ reporting system also allows us to analyze overall spending, industry benchmarking, contract compliance, preferred supplier compliance, and potential areas to negotiate and/or consider alternate suppliers.

Our veteran travel counselors act as your advocate. They save you time, control your costs, and capture the details of your trip.
