As part of Project SMU: Organizational Excellence for the 2nd Century, the Travel initiative is examining savings and efficiency measures in the travel booking process.
The University’s new travel software solution, Concur, requires integration with a travel management company (TMC). According to the OE2C website, the TMC will be responsible for issuing tickets on behalf of airlines, hotels and rental car companies booked through Concur; providing live assistance for travel booking; and assisting with changes to itineraries.
The Travel committee plans to recommend a TMC to the OE2C Executive Committee before the winter break. Committee members have examined information from a variety of companies and have selected four finalists for campus presentations from 1-5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2 in Crum Auditorium, Collins Executive Education Center:
Please plan to attend these presentations and bring your questions. Attendees will be asked to provide feedback after demonstrations are complete.
