CARLSON WAGONLIT TRAVEL (CWT) has launched CWT Connect Now to target small and medium sized enterprises. The tool gives corporates access to CWT-negotiated fares and, according to the travel management company, was designed for simple point-to-point online bookings as well as complex bookings requiring offline assistance.
Alison Smith, director of business development for CWT UK & Ireland, said: "It's built very much with them [SMEs] in mind. As soon as they want to go online, we can set it up with in 24 hours, but we can still offer some configuration to suit their policies and programmes. "These sorts of customers often just have quite simple travel policies, and don't necessarily have lots and lots of supplier deals, so they don't need all the bells and whistles that maybe a company would need. CWT said about 58 per cent of its clients have an annual travel spend of less than £250,000.
