It’s time to ‘change the game’ – Clarity Travel reveals travel buyer rulebook that redefines the rules for procuring business travel
“Redefine the rules of engagement and make business travel a winning way for your organisation to become more competitive, productive and profitable.” The advice from travel management company (TMC) Clarity Travel seems quite obvious, but with legacy processes still in place across many organisations it may not be that simple.
The UK-headquartered company has issued a challenge to travel buyers to rethink the way travel is procured through its “change the game” campaign and it is being promoted through a fun game of snakes and ladders, where the right moves will accelerate progress, where bad decisions will set you back, and where changing the game allows all the players to win.
“The new objective for business travel is no longer simply the pursuit of the lowest fares and rates,” it says, and modern business travel procurement requires players to take a more strategic view. Changing the game means looking at the bigger picture to identify how well managed travel can maximise productivity, limit risk and add real value to the business, it explains.
The campaign and game highlights that by taking a collaborative approach, and choosing players carefully, you can develop a strategy-led approach to managing travel which limits risk, boosts efficiency and adds demonstrable value to the company. These players comprise the procurement professional, the travel management company, the travel booker and the traveller themselves.
