East Midlands Trains has unveiled a new booking system designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses.
East Midlands says the new system will help SMEs speed up the searching and booking process through a dedicated online portal. Businesses can set up individual profiles with a list of staff and travel policy limits. The team will receive a log-in and can make bookings that will be captured within the company’s profile and stored in one place.
Companies using the system can either link a corporate payment option to their profile or allow employees to pay for tickets on their own cards. Travellers can also book tickets on other services outside of the East Midlands network with no booking fees.
Richard Clay, head of sales at East Midlands Trains, said: “We’re absolutely committed to helping the East Midlands grow and we believe this tool will help businesses to concentrate on running a thriving and successful business and spend less time booking their travel.”
