Egencia has been appointed by BP to run its global travel programme.
BP will use Egencia’s Analytics Studio, which brings online, mobile and offline booking data into one central location, making it easier for travel managers to track compliance, online adoption and identifying savings. By providing real-time data and analytics, BP will be able to visualise how its business travel programme is delivering strategic value and identify opportunities for optimisation.
Egencia and the Egencia Global Alliance (EGA) partners will support corporate travel across 47 countries in which BP operates. The two companies have signed a multi-year agreement designating Egencia the consolidated global travel provider. BP operates employs 74,000 people across Europe, North and South America, Australasia, Asia and Africa.
“Egencia’s business travel platform is very impressive compared to other offerings in the travel management market,” said Alex Thompson, vice-president of Global Business Services, procurement at BP. “For a business of our size and global scale, having a technology and data-driven solution is crucial to ensuring every traveler in our business has the same great experience from planning to traveling and a safe return home. We are confident that Egencia will help us deliver that great experience.”
“We’re proud to have been selected by BP to modernise their global business travel programme,” said Arnaud Le Masne, vice-president of worldwide sales at Egencia. “It’s an honour to work with one of the world’s most established companies, and it’s a testament to our ongoing commitment to help customers reimagine their corporate travel. We’re excited that our platform, our continued investment in innovation, and our skilled 24/7 local language customer service team will help BP to transform its global travel programme and better enable them to care for their travellers on the road.”
