ComBTAS, a provider of software that helps organisations to manage the costs of business travel, has announced the availability of its products in the UK. The company claims that businesses spend, on average, seven percent of their yearly budgets on business travel, and that its technology can reduce travel costs by an average of 23 percent.
ComBTAS’ software helps lower the costs of business travel by providing deep market intelligence on the full spectrum of business travel activities, including flights, rail travel, car rental, and accommodation. Using this intelligence the software is able to calculate the best value arrangement, taking into account factors such as the time-costs associated with senior executives, and policies on carbon emissions.
The system also delivers comprehensive travel policy planning and enforcement, budget control and expenses fraud management.
Dr. Steven Freudmann, NonExecutive Director of ComBTAS UK said: “Budget holders want absolute control and clarity on where their money is being spent and by whom, yet employees want the choice and control to get to a meeting, event or conference with minimal fuss. ComBTAS’ simple mission is to make the business travel process for organisations more efficient, clear and economical.”
ComBTAS’ software has been described by the UK Trade and Investment’s Global Entrepreneur Programme as a technology of exceptional potential. Andrew Humphries of the of UK Trade and Investment said “ComBTAS has a specialised product that will have huge appeal to any company managing a travel budget. The UK is a natural home for a company such as this. Not only will their product appeal to the domestic market but from the UK they will be able to exploit foreign markets abroad equally successfully.”
