The two companies have signed a global agreement for a five year term under which HRG will provide travel management services for Ericsson in AsPac, Ghana, the Nordics, South Africa and the UK.
Matthew Pancaldi, HRG’s Director of Sales commented: “We have worked with Ericsson for over 30 years. Our first contract together was signed in 1975 and since then, we have built a strong relationship that delivers value, expertise and tangible benefit. Our new contract is a consolidation of our many years of shared experience. We will continue to deliver exceptional product together with our expert, personal service to ensure all of Ericsson’s corporate travellers in our markets receive excellence without compromise. The commercial return we work with Ericsson to achieve is a given and will continue.”

It includes Ericsson’s own negotiated rates, travel policy, compliance standards and comprehensive reporting options, delivering data that ensures Ericsson maximise their travel budget.
