STM Travel News - December 2018

December 4, 2018

THANK YOU ALL FOR A WONDERFUL YEAR! WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUCH FANTASTIC CLIENTS IN OUR SHORT'S TRAVEL MANAGEMENT FAMILY. WE ARE WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO 2019!

STM IS EXCITED TO UNVEIL TWO EXCITING PRODUCTS COMING SOON! CANDIDATE TRAVEL: Sponsors and recruiters can easily define parameters (ex. dates, budget, etc.) for candidates and other non-associates to book travel via STO utilizing preferred and contracted rates.  Candidates receive an email with a one-time link to STO, enabling them to book travel at their convenience, within the recruiter’s parameters.  This controls travel spend for the recruiter, lowers booking fees, and is a super experience for the candidate. It is still in the design phase, so if you have cool ideas about design and functionality, we would love to chat with you!  Please contact innovations@shortstravel.com


HOTEL RATECHECKER: Powered by Tripbam, Hotel RateChecker will re-shop hotel bookings daily and re-book automatically when a lower rate is found – same room type and same hotel only!  Applies to bookings from STO, Concur, and agents.  Studies indicate savings exceeding $2,500 per month after fees on 500 monitored bookings, and processing fee only applies when savings are found.  No other costs, no work on the part of clients, and ROI is virtually certain.  Contact innovations@shortstravel.com today to get scheduled for implementation!

STOv5 UPDATE


We've made some exciting progress on STOv5 in the last month and are looking forward to the new year. New features include our innovative trip cart that allows travelers to book in order of importance. The tripcart is displayed throughout the entire booking process so that travelers can easily make changes or delete any part of the booking and can navigate to checkout more easily.  Our unused ticket policy has also undergone a complete makeover, allowing for easy viewing and use of the existing ticket.  If a traveler has an unused ticket, the flights in which the ticket can be applied will display at the top of the search results with a flag alerting travelers.  We've also taken out the decision factor of what's more important in viewing airline fares, price or schedule.  Now you can have both!  These are just a few of our exciting updates.  Be sure to check out our social media for some exciting information about our upcoming offerings for STOv5.
