With T&E (Travel & Expenses) expenditure often the second or third largest item of controllable expense within an organisation, managing travel is far from easy.
It's a position that enables others in the company to conduct their role better, but they themselves are often stretched thin across various activities. From negotiating supplier agreements and setting travel policies, to tracking travellers internationally - those involved in travel procurement are responsible for multiple priorities at any given time.
Even with rapid technological developments, face-to-face meetings remain a business necessity that has resulted in an increase demand for controllable corporate travel.
For travel managers, this means assessing what they do today and demonstrating where they can add real value to their organisations.
