Corporate Traveller expert Phil Symonds talks about business travel management for the digital age and shows how simple and clever technology is a necessity.
Companies need their teams to jump when plans change and we’ve got to provide them with the right tools to adapt quickly and efficiently. One thing we know for sure is a happy traveller makes our lives easier and with the right technology, we can keep those travellers more than happy. Here are three great solutions to help you help them.
