Traveler safety has always been an integral part of corporate travel management, but the COVID-19 pandemic has taught HR, finance, operations, procurement and travel program leaders just how critical it is to have a plan in place for when the unexpected happens.
To empower organizations to be able to rapidly adapt in the face of business disruptions and dynamic market changes, TripActions built the Business Travel Continuity™ suite of tools, products and features. In Course 11 of the TripActions Academy, we explore the data you need to be ready for the unexpected and how TripActions can help you prepare for tomorrow, today.
What is the TripActions Academy? It is a free series of courses that corporate travel program managers can take to strengthen their foundation of corporate travel and expense management skills, learn best practices, and bring new focus to their organization’s corporate T&E program. Our goal is to provide access to anyone and everyone that wants a high-level overview of corporate travel and expense fundamentals and user- and technology-first programs, policies, and tech.
We release two new courses each week: One focuses on the corporate travel and expense industry and best practices at large; the second looks at how TripActions specifically can be used to supercharge your efforts.
This section of the TripActions Academy starts by exploring what we mean by the term “business travel continuity” and how it’s become one of the most important factors in building a resilient travel program that allows your leaders to continue building relationships and closing deals. It then dives into the rich real-time data that is available right at your fingertips. From Traveler Reports and Live Traveler Maps to the Coronavirus Report and Restrictions Lists, corporate travel program managers using TripActions have the ability to see and control everything that’s happening to their travel program in real time.
The course also includes 10 best practices for increasing the resiliency of your travel program. The following sections are included in Course 11:
