Can you believe another year has gone by, another GBTA conference is wrapping up, and we are talking about 2015? This means you are about in the middle of or starting your budgeting for 2015 - and it is time to think about your audit costs and requirements for next year.
You know we work with over half of the Fortune 500 companies, and audit in over 80 countries, so we can easily include both US and international bookings. While we have cemented ourselves as the leader in airfare auditing, we can also provide hotel, car and internet audits for your travel program. In addition, we have recently added expense report auditing to our suite of services...when was the last time you were able to review all of your incoming expense reports? Topaz can provide an independent third-party evaluation of exactly how your money is being spent by your travelers.
Most companies evaluate their employees on an annual basis to ensure they are positively contributing to overall goals and expectations...why not evaluate your TMC on an annual basis to ensure they are performing at their best on behalf of you and your company? And while many companies have over 50% of their travel bookings conducted through an online booking tool, these airfares can easily be included in our auditing process to ensure it is performing at the expected level for your travelers.
We encourage you to include an audit - even for a month - in your budget for next year as a 'checks and balances' in your travel management system. Please contact Rebecca Frinell with any questions you might have and/or if you would like a cost estimate. We are here to help you plan for now and for the future!
