Traveleads Technology – bringing benefits to businesses across Edinburgh.

Posted: 2nd April 2019

Travel technology has come on in leaps and bounds over the last decade, enabling travel companies to develop various reliable self-booking options for their clients. Edinburgh based travel management company  ‘Traveleads’  has always charted ahead of the curve, maintaining a commitment to delivering state-of-the-art travel solutions. Recent research carried out by Traveleads identified that many businesses in our region think self-booking means going it alone – spending hours trawling price comparison websites or booking via self-book tools that are not fit for purpose.

Traveleads Marketing Manager David Walsh said “We constantly hear new customers contacting Traveleads telling us how they previously felt unsupported when it came to self-booking – this should never be the case!  We have won awards for our service and this is evident at every touch point in our business.  We provide our customers with self-book technology tailored to their requirements, along with interactive and easy to understand training on how to use it.”

Using an online booking tool isn’t the same as booking via the internet.  Partnering with Traveleads provides you with access to special industry rates and net fares.  Their self-book system has been designed to automatically find the most cost effective options, providing many Edinburgh based businesses with truly impartial travel solutions.  It tracks travel spend and enables finance teams to capture this data quickly and accurately.  It also charges all transactions to a central account, so no credit cards are required.  With all of your corporate travel pre-paid and fully bonded, confirmations, electronic tickets and vouchers can be sent directly to your travellers mobile devices, via the Traveleads app – which takes just seconds to download.  Their technology offers the freedom to check availability, save items to a basket, obtain authorisation and then book all of your travel elements including: flights, rail, accommodation, transfers, car-parking, and much more – in one straightforward single transaction.  For your added protection Traveleads only allow authorised users to make bookings, ensuring that all reservations are compliant with your company travel policy.  Try finding an online travel comparison website that can offer all that!

Phil Whitney Head of Online Implementation confirmed “Our self-booking tool has been designed to be user friendly, and simple to use.  Developed by tech-people for travel-people, because we want you to love it as much as we do …after all, our technology becomes your technology!  What really sets our self-booking tool apart from the competition is our fully comprehensive implementation process. We ensure everything is fully trialled and tested by our Technical Systems Manager before we put you in the driving seat. Support is readily available should you need it and all of our clients have access to our 24hr emergency assistance team.  Our online support crew are available to speak with you and answer any questions you might have during office hours, so at no point will you ever feel on your own!”
