Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) today announced that its mobile app, CWT To GoTM, is available on popular Smartphone platforms worldwide. CWT To Goallows busy travellers to access a wide range of services, including itinerary, changes in travel schedule and location-based information. Developed with CWT’s e-Commerce partner, Rearden Commerce, CWT To Go is available exclusively to travellers who book through CWT.
Providing travellers with practical on-the-spot support
CWT To Go gives travellers fingertip access to their travel details and essential information. If a flight is cancelled, delayed, or has a gate change, travellers automatically receive alerts on their mobile devices keeping them informed and allowing them to adjust their plans accordingly. Travellers can also access other relevant information related to their trip, including mobile check-in, destination weather and local dining information.
Helping travel managers drive compliance
CWT To Gois one of CWT’s core mobile offerings – it allows travel managers to drive compliance and helps travellers increase efficiency. CWT To Gosecurely imports all CWT booked itineraries, thus reducing any possible risks associated with third-party apps that travellers use today. Travel information is accessible regardless of how travel is booked – through online or offline booking channels or via any Global Distribution System (GDS). Travellers will be able to contact a CWT counsellor directly to re-schedule a trip or book further travel with a future click-to-call option, thereby helping them to adhere to the company’s travel policy.
“Whether corporations embrace it or not, we have seen that mobile technology is becoming a critical component of a business traveller’s everyday life,” says Pauline Quéré, VP CWT Customer Product Marketing, CWT. “The potential to be gained by integrating mobile devices to a managed travel programme is vast – not just in terms of additional services to the traveller but also in ensuring the traveller’s safety and security. With CWT To Go, we are providing our clients with a secure and free offer, which will help their travellers be more effective on the go, whilst at the same time ensuring that they remain within their corporations’ travel programme.”
