Carlson Wagonlit Travel launches new online management tool


CWT Connect Now is a new online travel managmenet tool designed by Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) for simple point-to-point online bookings, as well as complex travel requests that necessitate offline expertise for small to medium annual travel spend companies.

CWT highlighted that half of its UK clients spend less than £200,000 annually on travel.

The launch of CWT Connect Now will make it faster and easier for companies with a small to medium spend to manage their travel online, said Andrew Waller, executive vice president, CWT UK & Ireland.

According to CWT, companies with managed travel programmes can integrate their travel policy to drive greater compliance and savings and travellers can create and manage their profiles online for speedy and efficient reservations.

CWT Connect Now was developed in conjunction with other CWT offices across Europe and is also being deployed in Denmark, France, the Netherlands and Spain. Austria, Germany and Italy will follow shortly. The roll-out in Sweden and Switzerland will be completed by June.
