In the last few weeks, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has significantly impacted businesses, their employees, and their business travel plans and policies. In times of restricted travel and uncertainty, our number one priority is to partner with companies to effectively ensure traveler safety.
We are regularly increasing our business travel continuity product offerings and features to give customers timely access to information critical to making better decisions for their travel operations and the safety of travelers. Business travel continuity refers to the ability of organizations to rapidly adapt to ensure they can be resilient in the face of business disruptions, dynamic market changes, and quickly evolving situations like COVID-19.
Our high traveler adoption combined with rich traveler data, flexible policy controls, reporting, and traveler safety tools uniquely positions TripActions to enable customers with the highest level of business travel continuity. We offer a holistic approach to managing travel programs during unforeseen circumstances that threaten to disrupt business operations.
Here’s more about the business travel continuity features available to TripActions customers:
As the coronavirus and public health situations escalated, we launched the coronavirus report in the TripActions Admin Dashboard. As of last week, admins can now leverage reporting features including:
Admins now also have the ability to block travel to and within specific cities as well as a specific mile radius around the city. City Blacklisting is available for any city, not just cities impacted by COVID-19.
Updates to both traveler reports and booking reports in the TripActions Admin Dashboard make it easy for admins to pull a report of active travelers:
Financial Impact of Canceling Travel
All booking reports pulled from the Admin Dashboard now include a column that displays the max cancellation loss amount associated with canceling each booking. Max cancellation loss is an estimated calculation of the most your organization would have to pay to cancel bookings.
This calculation provides admins with increased visibility into the financial impact of their company’s changing travel plans.
Keep Track of Unused Tickets
Admins will be able to pull unused ticket reports in the TripActions Admin Dashboard.
Please note that unused ticket reports are only available to TripActions customers with a U.S. or Australia POS.
A new, manager-specific dashboard gives anyone with direct reports visibility into their team’s travel bookings, out-of-policy bookings, and overall spend.
