Message Enhancement & More

Say hodor to our latest product updates!

Messages: contact travel management company

Users can now contact their Travel Management Company (TMC) via the Messages section of the trip request (#10509):


Previously, users had to select a Travel Consultant who may not have been assigned to their area of the business or booking type (e.g. a user contacting a Travel Consultant dedicated to Singaporean employees or International trip reqests only). Messages will now be sent to a dedicated Agency Department inbox to ensure your enquiries are responded to by the right consultants.

COMPANY ADMINSTRATORS: VIEw booking tool itineraries

Company Administrators can now view the itineraries generated by the Locomote Corporate Booking Tool (#10433):

View_Itinerary_CBT_Pop_Up_Window.png Company Administrators previously needed to be the Travel Arranger for the Traveller to be able to view this type of itinerary.

Trip Details: Hotel Name field

When a user is selecting a hotel segment within the Travel Details application, they have the option to add a Hotel Name, which will request the Travel Consultant to provide a quote with that hotel (#10691):


Originally this field box was blank, however to help advise users that this field is not mandatory, we have inserted the text 'Optional'. Please be advised, if you are submitting a trip request with a booking tool configured workflow i.e. a travel consultant is not providing quotes, you can enter the name of the hotel when the booking tool loads (Hotel Name field):

EMAIL: Business case for travel field update

The email field Travel Description has been renamed Business Case for Travel as the information is sourced from this application (#5236).

CARS: search results SORTED BY POLICY

Users will now be able to see all preferred car vendors displayed at the top of the search results (#10841):


Previously, car search results were only sorted by price order (cheapest to the most expensive). This enhancement will prioritise the preferred car vendors before non-preferred suppliers:


This enhancement will help users select options inline with their Company's policy.

CARS: vendor locations sorted by policy

When a user clicks on the Pick Up/Drop Off Location to select a car depot, the vendor locations will be sorted by the Company's policy configurations (#10939):


Originally the depot locations were sorted by vendor in alphabetical order and users may have had to scroll down to find their Company's preferred supplier; this enhancement will help users select options inline with their Company's policy. 

booking tool: company rates

Agency Administrators will now be able to select an option to Use Company's rates at a Department level (#10107):


This enhancement will save Agency Administrators time from having to add the Company rates individually.
