HRG demonstrates technology enhancements at Business Travel Show
Hogg Robinson Group (HRG), the award-winning international corporate services company, today announced the newest version of HRG Online™ at the Business Travel Show at Earls Court in London. Visitors to the show will be able to sample the tool’s new features and learn about their benefits directly from HRG’s experts.
Already in use by travellers around the world, HRG Online is HRG’s self-service online booking tool designed to manage data and drive value in travel spend. New features further boost transparency and incorporate a number of policy checks to ensure travel arrangements adhere to corporate guidelines, including:
- advanced waitlist functionality to reduce time and effort spent on sourcing flights by combining waitlist segments to a confirmed itinerary
- ability to reserve specific Eurostar seating through integrated booking platform to reduce time and effort spent
- lowest fare policy rules for rail travel to allow travel managers to enforce policy and guarantee that travellers always select the best possible ticket price
- maximum fare price restrictions for air, rail and car orders to allow travel managers to enforce policy and guarantee that travellers do comply with maximum fare restrictions
HRG’s team will also be exhibiting HRG i-Suite, HRG’s web-based portal that integrates a self-service reservation tool, data consolidation and reporting, expense management and traveller tracking capabilities, as well as the recent HRG i-Suite mobile application. The mobile application provides immediate access for travellers on the move.
Paul Saggar, HRG’s Director of Technology and Product Development, said. “As always, we’re eager to show clients how we’ve further developed HRG’s already strong portfolio of travel technology built in-house. We consistently assess our service offering to ensure that our technology is leading the market by servicing clients’ global needs, whether that be a more seamless user experience, more spend transparency or tighter security measures.”
Saggar will participate in Tnooz’s mobile technology discussion on Wednesday, 8 February at 11:10. Nick Reynolds, HRG’s Head of Commercial and Service Delivery, took part in a panel debate that looked at the distribution revolution on Tuesday, 7 February.
