Fox World Travel creates custom solutions with innovative technology
As a travel manager, you juggle a lot of responsibility. You want corporate travel tools, including business travel apps, to make your life—and the job of your business travelers—easier. So, when you’re looking for a travel management company, finding a team that offers more than the standard corporate travel booking tools is essential.
“We know that travel can be complicated and stressful, so we take as much of that away from our travelers and travel managers as possible,” says Beth Marino, Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Fox World Travel.
In addition to reducing traveler friction, the organization keeps in mind the core reason professionals conduct business travel in the first place: to build a business. “Travel for a frequent business traveler is simply a necessary aspect of their job,” she explains. “We put everything in their hands so they’re empowered with the information they need to succeed.”
While many travel management companies use third-party corporate travel tools, Fox World Travel takes it a step further by creating technology that enriches the customer experience. In the end, the goal is to fully utilize technology for the benefit of customers. “We push its limits, refuse to accept the status quo and make it all that it possibly can be for our customers,” says Marino.
From business travel apps to invoicing technology, streamlined corporate travel booking tools and a knowledgeable team of experts to back it all up, here’s a closer look at five of the top traveler tools Fox World Travel offers.
