New platforms make travel management easier for businesses.
OSHKOSH, WIS. – Fox World Travel, a progressive business travel management company (TMC), and Oakland-based Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the corporate travel industry, announced Fox World Travel as a Deem Collective premium partner. With Fox’s expanded capabilities as a Deem Collective premium partner, Fox expands on its ability to custom program and configure Deem to work intuitively based on the customer’s objectives. The solution features a simplified interface and an agile and intuitive user experience which reduces traveler friction.
With this elevated partnership and additional offerings for clients, Fox can help business travel programs increase policy adoption, improve the use of negotiated rates and better manage traveler safety and security, all of which lead to program cost effectiveness and more importantly, traveler management with enhanced duty of care.
“Engaging the traveler and earning their buy-in is key to a successful travel program and policy adoption,” said George Kalka, vice president of business travel for Fox World Travel. “When travelers understand the technology and the experience is highly intuitive, they embrace the program and naturally support the organization’s duty of care and risk mitigation, which is especially critical in today’s environment. Deem’s platform is a simple and easy interface; our clients couldn’t be more thrilled with the recent enhancements.”
“Our new platform, Etta, was designed around business travelers and their needs,” said David Grace, president of Deem. “Using a mobile-first approach, we created an intuitive, accessible, and robust platform that empowers travelers to book and manage every part of their trip. Whether they need wellness and safety information from Travel SafetyCheck or need to add a car rental mid-trip, travelers get what they need right away in Etta.”
With an even deeper relationship between Deem and Fox, travel managers and business partners have more options available to decide when, where and how their travelers engage with less disruption and more innovation.
