Carlson Wagonlit Travel is to pilot hotel booking on its mobile app CWT To Go.
Users of the app are now able to search, book and cancel hotel rooms, with results plotted on a map.
Results show the rates and properties included in their company’s travel policy, so users can select from the most relevant content.
CWT claims that booking a hotel “is simple” using the app, as traveller details, such as name and credit card information, are pulled straight from the TMC’s global profile management tool.
A full roll-out of this new functionality to all CWT To Go users is planned for the end of the year.
CWT’s executive VP of global marketing and enterprise strategy, David Moran, said: “Hotel booking for CWT To Go users is a significant addition to creating a seamless and supportive app.
“Travellers and travel managers alike have told us mobile booking is important to them, and this is a key step in our mission to become the managed travel app of choice.”
