The real-life value of using a travel management company: Visibility

For travel managers responsible for orchestrating the seamless movement of employees across the globe, the pursuit of efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and duty of care is an ever-present challenge. In the fast-paced world of corporate travel, the real-life value of using a Travel Management Company (TMC) cannot be understated.

The importance of having accurate visibility of how your organisation travels is key to an effective corporate travel programme, but it’s incredibly difficult to achieve without utilising the services, and leveraging the expertise, of a TMC.


Corporate travel is an area that requires investment and decisions from multiple stakeholders, perhaps more so than any other spending category, and so it’s vital to have access to data that is relevant to each stakeholder and their interests. An efficient TMC should be able to quickly provide you with reports that detail relevant KPIs and demonstrate progress or trends, all in a digestible format that can be customised to suit you.


Data forms the foundation of any robust corporate travel programme, informing any initiatives and policies that rest upon it. A TMC should go one step further than simply collecting your organisation’s travel data and should turn data patterns into actions that improve the efficacy of your travel programme, and then share these insights with your key stakeholders so that they can make informed decisions in the future.

Visibility of travellers

It’s not just numbers that are important to a corporate travel programme, duty of care efforts are essential and a valuable TMC should offer you complete visibility of your travellers, allowing you to see whether they checked into their hotel, landed safely and locate them in the event of an emergency.

Through robust reporting, data-driven insights, and traveller monitoring capabilities, TMCs contribute to an effective travel program. They enable stakeholders to make data-informed decisions, optimise the program continuously, and ensure the safety and well-being of travellers.
