Business Travel News Site ‘The Beat’ Features Carlson Wagonlit Travel

Business travel news site, The Beat, is featuring Carlson Wagonlit Travel based on our unique solutions for customers. We are proud to offer a free business travel service to companies and travelers alike and we’re humbled to be noticed for our efforts.

The article outlines the challenges businesses face when researching, booking and coordinating business travel. Here’s an excerpt from the article, “CWT Formulates No-Fee, No-Contract Bundle for Small Market”:

There is no shortage of travel players targeting the unmanaged business travel segment. Startups, entrenched tech providers and travel management companies alike have formulated offerings for the vast but fragmented sector.

Mega-TMC Carlson Wagonlit Travel, too, is coming on the scene with a no-fee, no-contract bundle of tools and services for small U.S. companies looking to jump-start a managed travel program.

“We’ve been at it for nine months,” CWT VP of global product marketing Ben Scott said Thursday during an interview. “The idea has morphed over time, as you would expect, through a proof of concept. The received wisdom was: ‘Let’s keep this super low cost; let’s keep it travel-in-a-box, and we can get out there and get our fair share.'”

Managing business travel is so much more than a number on a screen. Travel — and all you do to manage it — can consume much of your company’s budget, as well as your time.

We’re here to help small, growing businesses keep travel costs down. We want our clients to stand out from the competition and be prepared for any situation. This is probably why many of the world’s most successful businesses partner with CWT to manage their travel.

We can’t wait to help book your next business trip. For more information on managed travel, Contact CWT Business Travel Solutions.
