Corporate Traveller launches Seeqa Lite online booking solution

Seeqa Lite, as its name suggests, is a simpler streamlined solution enabling customers to quickly search and book flights, hotels, rail and car hire in just a few clicks all in one place, including low cost airlines and booking.com hotel properties.

Corporate Traveller, the specialist travel management company for clients with an annual SME-size business travel spend of £50K to £2M, is launching Seeqa Lite, an alternative version of its main Seeqa online booking tool.

Seeqa Lite, as its name suggests, is a simpler streamlined solution enabling customers to quickly search and book flights, hotels, rail and car hire in just a few clicks all in one place, including low cost airlines and booking.com hotel properties. In addition, traveller preferences such as dietary requirements, frequent flyer numbers and passport details are automatically transferred to bookings. Seea Lite also forwards itineraries for manager approval, helping to control costs. A single consolidated invoice is produced per month, avoiding additional management of payments to multiple suppliers. Implementation of Seeqa Lite is much faster as the tool can be up and running within one day for those clients not requiring customisation.

Meanwhile the full version of Seeqa, which has been renamed ‘Seeqa Pro’, is available to clients needing greater customisation of their online booking tool to meet their business objectives and travel programme needs. For example, the client’s travel policy can be configured within Seeqa Pro with a traffic light system to warn travellers if they’re trying to book out of policy. It can also be customised to accommodate complex approval flows and, for clients needing greater reporting, bespoke data capture fields can be set up to track cost centres or project codes. Seeqa Pro can be implemented in up to four weeks.

“Our business model is built around personal service provided by dedicated small teams of expert travel consultants based in our 20 offices across the UK, looking after their own client portfolio of locally-based businesses. But we also recognise our service-based business model can be enhanced by appropriate technology solutions in order to drive further efficiencies for our client base,” explained Andy Hegley, UK General Manager, Corporate Traveller.

“However, that technology needs to be tailored to match the differing needs and expectations of our SME-spend clients, in order to benefit, the booker, traveller and manager. Some of our existing customers, as well as new clients, were asking us for a simpler online booking tool with a shorter implementation time. That’s why we have invested in Seeqa Lite as an alternative to our full online booking offering.

“Our priority is to give our SME-spend clients greater choice and technology that is simple to use, whilst supporting them with booking and managing travel costs and processes, as well as duty of care obligations. It’s about blending the appropriate mix of expert offline service, with technology solutions that are right for each client’s business,” said Hegley.
