Abacus launches TripPlan travel management product in Asia

Abacus International has launched Abacus TripPlan, an integrated travel approval and management solution for the Asian enterprise.

The product designed specifically for business travel within Asia Pacific and offers several unique features.

It is integrated with Abacus FareX and Abacus SmartPrice, Abacus TripPlan, through which it can offer the best competitive and corporate-negotiated available fares.

Simultaneously, these fares are filtered and highlighted based on the corporation and each traveller’s profile, ensuring full compliance with corporate travel policies while delivering the best savings.

Another key feature is the merged pre-travel approval process – a common practice among Asian corporations often implemented through a manual process or separate system.

With Abacus TripPlan, trip planning and approval is integrated and streamlined – supervisors are automatically notified of new trip requests that they can then approve with a single-touch – anytime, anywhere, through any device.

This approval process applies to both travel within and outside of normal travel policy parameters, such as when travelling together with a client.

“Abacus TripPlan is a ready-to-go solution that enables corporations to arrange and manage all their travel arrangements in a single platform, ensuring higher organisation productivity,” said Mr Brett Henry, vice president marketing, Abacus International.

“In today’s challenging economy, corporations are constantly monitoring their travel expenses and staff adherence to travel policies.

“Abacus TripPlan can help corporations drive employees towards responsible travel behaviour and optimise the organisation’s travel expenditure.”
