While many of our competitors may call themselves a Travel Agency (with a concentration on retail ticketing), or a Travel Management Company (responding only to what the client thinks they want), we aim to define a new type of travel organization called a Travel Leadership Consulting Firm who not only listens to the needs of its customers but shows their customers how to they can consider thinking differently to create a new way to solve their issues and maximize the key benefits of successful travel procurement strategies that include:

  1. Support- Systems development, trip planning 24/7, supplier advocacy, disruption management, VIP services and more.
  2. Savings- Unbiased access to legacy, web, low-cost carrier, preferred supplier (yours and a TMC’s) deals. Enforced policy and selection monitoring.
  3. Productivity- Well supported call-in and on-line reservations, time-saving change management and data management.
  4. Control- Data collection and assessment, procurement process creation, employee tracking, policy enforcement, and expense monitoring.

Without a new process that maximizes these benefits, organizations cannot predict what their travel expenses and resulting impact with be. They have waste, inefficiencies, and liabilities that they cannot quantify. Sound familiar?
