Corporate Lodging - Friday 7 June 2019
Business travel involves not only the procurement department, but also stakeholders from Finance, IT, Human Resources, Safety, and Communication – and of course the business traveler.
The travel buyer finds him or herself in the center playing the role of a conductor. The task is to manage the wants, needs, and goals of the entire stakeholder network and roll out an optimal procurement strategy.

How to connect lodging for transient and meetings?
The lodging category is the most common spend between transient travel and meetings.
Since procurement organizations have started to look at the meeting spend optimization opportunities, the hotel industry has merged their team and approach to corporations.  However, the pricing policies and yield management remain different, and it is often difficult for non-experts to understand what type of optimization corporations can get by bundling their volumes.

Payment: How to connect the Hotel Industry?
Many suppliers are involved to make the virtual payment solutions available to all business travelers. The hotels are at the end of the value chain, and it is essential that they accept this new payment mode.
