The Rise of Mobile Apps in Business Travel

 

In the not too distant past, booking a flight for business would often have entailed a trip or at least a phone call to your travel agent. If a flight was cancelled, everyone flocked to airport customer service desks or phoned help desks and to find your way about a new city, there was nothing better than a good guidebook. How life has changed.

Now, travelling is made easier by technology and in recent years the sector has seen an explosion of apps which have proved vital to every aspect of journeys, trips and holidays.

In the corporate travel world, clients need to stay connected and multi task if they want to remain productive. A recent study found that 87% of travellers use Smartphones while travelling, making it an essential device.

The same study, conducted by Amadeus, found that 61% of business travellers use an app for flight check in, while more than half utilise applications when they reach their destination.

Beyond Business have teamed with Amadeus to offer our clients the best technology and the best service. We use mobile messenger, which means we can contact the traveller and their manager at all times. This is particularly important in times of unrest, or when delays and disruptions occur. The app also allows for traveller tracking so that employers can know where their people are, at all times.

Through the Check Your Trip app, our clients can also store full travel itineraries (including details of flights, car hire, hotel bookings, train travel and more), check on details of previous trips and monitor status of flights, expected delays or travel occurrences.

“The rise of mobile technology has given us more choice and better control of our travel,” says Georgina Douglas, Key Account Manager at Beyond Business Travel. “More people are travelling than ever before and in a increasingly cost-effective way. Technology allows us to book, manage and monitor a booking, as well as exploring our destination and it’s attractions. All in seconds.”

Edel Doherty, Managing Director at Beyond, added: “As part of our omnichannel strategy, Beyond Business Travel has seen the need to make sure our corporate clients can be reached through whichever channel they choose – online through mobile, tablet, desktop or offline in our office, in their premises or over the phone.”

Our suite of advanced mobile solutions make it easy for business users to plan, book, and manage trips simply, conveniently, and on the move.
