Corporate Travel Management (CTM) is aiming to keep business travel simple for SMEs with the launch of its premium service package, Lightning Lite.
Unveiled at the Business Travel show, the service is manageable and low cost for companies who spend up to £750k per year on travel.
SMEs using the service can select from three different packages – silver gold and platinum – designed to let them choose the right level of service for their business based on the number of travellers and trips they manage.
“CTM’s unique blend of customer service and innovative technology drives exceptional value for all our clients, whatever their travel spend,” said Shelley Mathews, VP of sales Europe at CTM.
“This is why Lightning Lite is so revolutionary for the SME market: it gives companies with a travel spend of below £750k access to all the premium technology and services normally associated with a large travel management programme, plus they can customise their package so they only pay for the elements they actually need.”
By using a three-tiered model, businesses will be able to maximise ROI and will also grow with them as their company grows and travel needs evolve.
By encouraging users to book online, Lightning Lite drives compliance giving the SME greater visibility of its travel programme.
Mathews added: “By joining CTM, SME businesses can take advantage of our global buying power to access greater content, better fares and our lowest fare guarantee to make the most of their budgets and maximise travel spend ROI.
“Plus, a designated team will be on hand 24/7 to help them develop and refine the performance of their programme. All in all, Lightning Lite is just an incredibly simple – and effective – way for SMEs to manage travel.”
