Take control of your travel costs
SkyGate10 is a comprehensive travel management tool used by corporate travel managers at successful European companies. The increased control provided by SkyGate10 enables corporations to dramatically cut travel costs while increasing service and productivity. SkyGate10 delivers a wide range of unique benefits for companies that depend on travel to meet their business objectives. The primary benefits provided by SkyGate10 are described below.
Reduce internal and external travel-related costs
SkyGate10 enables corporate travel managers to optimize both internal and external costs. Internal costs are typically where the most extensive cost reductions can be made. SkyGate10 enables auditors to determine whether or not travellers are consistently selecting low-fare tickets when offered and whether travellers are consistently booking with short lead times. In terms of external costs, SkyGate10 provides a range of cost-cutting capabilities such as verifying that the rebates provided by suppliers are accurate.
One universal master profile
Maintain a profile for each traveller that includes travel history, frequent flyer miles, relevant cost-center numbers, and individual preferences.
Speed up booking process in GDS
Automatic transfer of availability and profile information to a Global Distribution Systems (GDS) such as Amadeus or Galileo. Book air tickets as well as car and hotel reservations directly in the GDS and store the PNR in SkyGate forever. Manage a large number of travel requests and bookings via an easy-to-use workflow queue. Queues for individual booking agents can be centrally managed to increase overall productivity. Manage complex travel requests that involve numerous travel legs for one traveller or delegations involving many travellers with different itineraries.
Enforce the corporate travel policy
Using SkyGate10, your organization gains a centralized method for enforcing the corporate travel policy. SkyGate10 is delivered with extensive functionality that makes it easy to enforce both simple and complex travel policies. With SkyGate10, you can maintain control, measure the effectiveness of you travel policy, and give individual travellers consistent travel guidelines.
Increase service and productivity
Whether travel requests are made via phone or email, SkyGate10 provides a shared work queue that lets travel booking personnel process bookings quickly and efficiently. The ability to centrally process bookings from one, easy-to-use queue translates into better service for corporate travellers and enables travel managers to maintain full control.
Freedom to chose
When you’re in control you have the freedom and knowledge to choose among the many TMCs, online and old-school phone/fax connected suppliers to build the perfect suite of suppliers to meet your exact needs.
Set the travellers free and stay in control
The SkyGate Travel Portal (SkyWeb) works in combination with SkyGate10 and enables corporations to get the benefits of online booking while enforcing the corporate travel policy. In short, SkyWeb gives you the efficiencies of self-service and the control of centralized travel management.
With SkyWeb, individual travellers use the corporate intranet to make travel requests, manage travel approvals, request travel changes, view travel itineraries, view their travel history, update their travel profiles and more - either while at the office or on the road.
While internet travel booking is becoming popular among consumers, corporations often find that the lack of control from internet booking can lead to wasted time and unnecessarily high travel bills for corporate travellers. SkyWeb, on the other hand, provides the perfect combination of self-service, centralized control, and travel data consolidation.
Reduce Travel and Administration Costs
SkyWeb makes it extremely easy for corporate travellers to make travel requests and access their travel itineraries. Compared to traditional methods - phone, fax and e-mail - self-service via the corporate intranet translates into reduced travel-administration costs. Whether it's simple round trips, complicated travel itineraries, or multi-party delegations, SkyWeb makes it easy and cost effective for travellers via self-service.
SkyWeb lets corporate travellers request travel and request changes when and where it best suits them. In many cases, the entire travel cycle can take place via SkyWeb. This convenience results in travellers that are more satisfied with the travel experience.
