New Online Travel Booking System
In order to improve and enhance efficiencies of the Memorial University Travel Program, LeGrow’s Travel provides an online corporate self-service reservation tool called Concur that is specifically customized for Memorial University travellers and travel arrangers to use for making airline, hotel and car rental reservations. This allows travellers and travel arrangers to book travel online and will automatically apply special university and government negotiated contracts as well as personal traveller preferences.
This booking platform is designed to:
- Give travellers control over their travel preferences and options with “anytime, anywhere” access to self-service travel reservations capabilities;
- Allow the university to realize significant cost savings through the use of preferred vendors while tracking volumes for future travel provider negotiations; also
- Enable travellers to also have counsellor assistance, if required, 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world.
