HRG has signed Grant Thornton as its latest client in the UK. HRG, the world class corporate travel services company, will manage all business travel for Grant Thornton, a leading financial and business adviser which has offices in 30 locations nationwide and more than 25,000 individual and 15,000 corporate and institutional clients.
“We are delighted to be working with Grant Thornton,” comments Matthew Pancaldi, Director of Sales, UK. “We have agreed some keen success measures with Grant Thornton, including increasing their online adoption rates, and we look forward to delivering to these targets.”
HRG will provide Grant Thornton with both a classic and an online service. The client will use HRG Online™ and will benefit from HRG’s integrated rail solution with Trainline, HRG Reporting™, HRG Profiler™ and the overall functionality of the HRG i-Suite™. During the sales process, key Grant Thornton travel bookers evaluated HRG Online rigorously. The users tested the system and reported back that they found it highly intuitive and user-friendly. In particular the product stood out with its ability to access all traffic types, including national rail, Eurostar and low cost carriers. HRG’s new Hotel BillBack function received positive feedback during the trial.
Steve Prior, National Finance Partner of Grant Thornton comments: “At Grant Thornton we pride ourselves on providing the best-value advice the industry has to offer. We believe in strong, working relationships that are based on honesty, respect and integrity, having found that these are the best foundations for sustained success. In HRG, we have found an organisation which shares the same values and beliefs as us. Working with HRG, we benefit from the counsel of long-standing expertise in corporate travel management, cutting edge technology and a comprehensive product portfolio.”
