Global on-line travel planner cuts costs and saves time

Electrolux, the world’s largest producer of products for kitchen, cleaning, and outdoor use, is implementing the first globally accessible, interactive and complete travel planner for employees. The on-line booking system for hotels and flights, located in the company’s Intranet, is expected to cut costs, due to a more consequent leverage of corporate rates and improved co-ordination.

The purpose of the travel planner is to make travel arrangements easier, faster and more cost efficient. The on-line booking system for hotel accommodation automatically displays available rooms at hotels with corporate-negotiated rates, and will also deliver confirmation immediately. The travel planner also offers a variety of travel information, such as maps to Electrolux locations, route finders, regional particularities and currency calculators.

Electrolux Travel Manager Jo-Achim Hamburger expects a high level of acceptance for the new booking system. “I believe the travel planner will be successful. The system was developed in close co-operation with frequent travellers, and it will be available in an already popular environment on the Intranet.”
