Traveldoo, the business travel and expense management specialist in Expedia’s corporate travel arm Egencia, has announced the renewal of a partnership with engineering giant Alstom.
The three-year renewal comes after Alstom first started using the Traveldoo solution to manage its business travel spend in 2009.
Alston has 92,000 employees working in 100 countries and turns over €20 billion annually.
Traveldoo deployed its expenses solution in 15 countries in less than a year with the support of Alstom and Carlson Wagonlit Travel teams.
Traveldoo claimed the tie-up saw a high adoption rate and a doubling on online transactions in the second year of the partnership.
In 2010, Alstom deployed “Traveldoo Assisted Booking” allowing total control of travel spend through a single interface.
Nabih El Aroussi, president of Traveldoo, said: “We are delighted that Alstom group have placed their trust in Traveldoo for a further three-year term. “It rewards the distinctive qualities of Traveldoo’s product reliability and exceptional flexibility, and continuous involvement of company’s teams and management to serve our customers.”
Marie-Christine Jonon, indirect purchasing manager of Alstom Group, added: “Alstom was able to optimise its travel purchasing processes in Europe while retaining the ability to adapt to the demands of the different Group’s businesses. These new processes enabled us to significantly reduce the trips’ average cost.”
