For corporate travellers, mobile apps are fundamentally altering the way in which they work and being able to manage their travel requirements at anytime, anywhere with speed and ease is what these travellers expect.

It’s difficult to recall the days of travel before smartphones were ubiquitous – but mobile has changed the way the travel industry operates on all levels and corporate travel is no exception. According to PhoCusWright’s European Online Travel Overview, online bookings on mobile devices are set to increase from 11% in 2013 to 20% in 2015 and mobile apps are poised to overtake PC internet usage this year – so it’s clear that they are a vital part of creating a more connected future of travel.

With this in mind, our Amadeus e-Travel Management Mobile app, for both iPhone and Android, was designed with a reinvented look and feel, based on the latest trends, to fit in with users’ expectations. The result gives a smoother navigation in an elegant configuration together with additional enhancements.

The app* now includes hotel** booking functionality complimenting existing flight and rail booking functionality, according to corporate policies and rules inherited from Amadeus e-Travel Management (AeTM). The app also gives the possibility to retrieve instantly trips booked via AeTM on the web or on the mobile device. Users can easily search, book and approve all the segments of their trip aligned to existing processes. Last minute trip planning is quicker thanks to its ease of use, being sure to stay aligned with company’s policies, profiles, fares, methods of payments and delivery.

It’s clear that mobile is key in terms of creating a more connected travel landscape and the Amadeus e-Travel Management Mobile app is a big leap forward for corporate travel managers.
