CWT report shows travel managers are putting traveler needs first

Published on : Wednesday, December 9, 2015

cwtThe latest research from Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) suggests 2016 will be the year of the traveler, as companies embrace new technologies and ways of working to improve traveler satisfaction.

 

The CWT Trends* website combines a survey of over 1,000 travel managers across the world, white papers, client case studies and additional CWT research to give travel managers a comprehensive look at the year ahead. The report’s interactive microsite allows them to read about key market developments and further investigate the topics that will affect their programs.

 

Commenting on the study, David Moran, executive vice president, CWT, said: “Travel managers have told us loud and clear that the traveler experience will play a major role in the 2016 travel program. Whether it’s proactive destination information, help in an emergency, multichannel access or personalized services – everything is designed to provide travelers with a seamless experience at every stage of a trip.”

Other trends identified as key to traveler experience include the sharing economy, virtual payment and big data.

 

Moran concluded: “As companies look at how to make travelers’ lives easier, the role of the travel management company is evolving – from travel bookers to trusted advisors who provide real insights. While new technology will play a part, the human touch is important too, as counselors suggest proactive solutions and advice on a host of topics. CWT is in the ideal position to provide the best of both.”
