Alstom optimises its management of business travel spend with Traveldoo Enterprise

Traveldoo, the provider of web, mobile and expense platforms for business travel, today announced the three-year renewal of its direct contract with Alstom, a global leader in rail, production and electricity transmission infrastructures.

With a turnover of 20 billion Euros, Alstom is present in approximately one hundred countries and has 92,000 employees. With a strong desire to optimise the management of its business travel spend, Alstom has utilised the highly trusted solutions provided by Traveldoo.

Since 2009, Traveldoo Enterprise has been Alstom's outsourced solution to cover all the travel needs of the Transport, Power, Renewable and more recently Grid sectors throughout Europe.

Traveldoo deployed this solution in fifteen countries in less than a year with the support of Alstom and Carlson Wagonlit Travel teams. The success was immediate with a high number of online transactions, which has more than doubled in the second year, and a high adoption rate. Thanks to its recognised technological expertise, Traveldoo Enterprise is now integrated with SAP Expense in a unique way. In 2010, Alstom took one step further by deploying “Traveldoo Assisted Booking” allowing total control of travel spend through a single interface.

" We are delighted that Alstom group have placed their trust in Traveldoo for a further three-year term. It rewards the distinctive qualities of Traveldoo's product reliability and exceptional flexibility, and continuous involvement of company's teams and management to serve our customers ", said Nabih El Aroussi, President of Traveldoo.

" Thanks to the flexibility of the product and the availability of Traveldoo teams, Alstom was able to optimise its travel purchasing processes in Europe while retaining the ability to adapt to the demands of the different Group's businesses. These new processes enabled us to significantly reduce the trips' average cost ", said Marie-Christine Jonon, Indirect Purchasing Manager of Alstom Group
