How TMCs are keeping up with the corporate traveler

For many corporate travelers, business travel booking processes just aren't working. That's not conjecture – it's one of the findings from a survey we conducted among regular corporate travelers.

We reviewed the findings with leading figures from the business travel sector, and a clear picture emerged of a corporate booking experience that too often isn't keeping pace with modern travelers' expectations.
