Improved travel programme, cash flow and experiences

Reducing £1.2m annual business travel, accommodation and meetings spend while improving cash flow and employee experiences for Burges Salmon.

Burges Salmon needed to reduce the £1.2m annual cost of its business travel, accommodation and meetings.

The firm required online access to expertly negotiated supplier rates and a billing process that effectively supports client billable travel, increasing the firm's cash flow. It also wanted travellers and travel arrangers to benefit from the expertise and reassurance provided by 24/7 booking and online support teams.

The solution

The firm’s billing challenge was addressed as part of a flexible implementation and technology approach. A process was developed to integrate with Burges Salmon’s back office billing technology, allowing travel arrangers to allocate no less than five essential matter and nominal codes.

The outcome

The implementation went incredibly smoothly and all employee feedback was positive.

Since the launch, online bookings have remained high and the firm is enjoying savings and a fast and efficient client billing process.

“Since going live, Capita Travel and Events has consolidated and renegotiated our hotel programme and its specialists are creating tangible savings opportunities for us. It has also been able to set up reporting that complements our own financial processes.”
