Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Inc. Key Developments

Carlson Wagonlit Travel Collaborates with Osmotion to Develop Booking Solution for FIFO Workers

Carlson Wagonlit Travel has collaborated with Osmotion to offer a booking solution for fly-in fly-out, or FIFO, workers that allows companies to manage the complexity of remote site travel management. The integrated software solution helps energy and resources companies address some of their key travel management challenges by eliminating multiple booking touch points, time-consuming manual processes and business inefficiencies, as well as providing travelers with a single traveler itinerary for all their commercial, charter and site logistics. The fully-integrated solution offered to organizations working with both CWT and Osmotion, consolidates and simplifies the fragmented processes that are required to move thousands of employees travelling to stay and work at remote locations.

Travelport Announces New Long Term Agreement with Carlson Wagonlit Travel

Travelport and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) have announced an expanded multi-year, global agreement. The agreement builds upon the two companies' already long standing relationship and creates a long-term commercial framework to lead and define the working partnership between the two organizations through to the next decade. As part of the agreement, CWT Travel Counselors will continue to have access to Travelport's unsurpassed travel content inventory, which includes fares and now ancillaries from the network and low cost carriers, as well as its merchandising and desktop technology. Travelport will, in turn benefit from new and incremental business from CWT in certain targeted countries in Europe and the Pacific regions.

Carlson Wagonlit Travel Introduces New Virtual Payment Solution

Carlson Wagonlit Travel has introduced a new virtual payment solution, powered by Conferma. Part of CWT's focus on delivering a seamless door-to-door integrated system for clients and their travelers at every step of their journey, the new virtual payment solution not only helps travelers without a company credit card, but also clients who want to settle their corporate travel centrally. Initially the solution will be used to pay for hotels and low cost carriers, and may also be offered for other content in the future. For clients and travel managers, this means automated reconciliation of charges for improved accuracy, greater visibility into total cost of travel, increased efficiency and better program compliance, while travelers benefit from a simplified expense management process and less reliance on their personal credit cards for business expenditure.
