  • Forward
    itineraries
    booked
    direct for
    easy access

    Travelers that book part of a trip or all their trips with suppliers direct can forward their itinerary to the booking site to consolidate all trip components in one itinerary for convenience. The forwarded bookings are then normalized into a common database allowing the company to maintain duty of care and analyze travel trends.

  • Import direct
    bookings from
    cloud-based
    email systems

    Companies that want to import "all" of their employees’ direct bookings, can sign up with a web-based service to monitor employee travel-related itineraries and import their data into a common database. Once the data is parsed, the company monitors cancelled tickets to verify re-utilization for future travel.

  • Export direct
    bookings from
    server-based
    email systems

    Companies using server based email systems may license email filter technology to run on their email server to find "all" employee travel itineraries booked direct and export the data to a common database. Once the data is normalized, the company can audit prices for program compliance, policy compliance, and monitor fraudulent expense reports.
