Largest hotel chain Treebo Hotels has announced the launch of 'Treebo for Business' to offer a seamless booking experience to its corporate clients, which will allow the users to check real-time room availability, make instant bookings, avail the customized rates offered to them, make online cancellations and access booking history and preferred choices of employees.
In the absence of better options, corporates so far have had to follow an archaic process of manually making and managing bookings for each employee. Multiple travel requests, lengthy negotiation process, and long email exchange and phone calls with the service providers and employees make hotel bookings a tedious job. Treebo for Business has been conceptualised to address these challenges.
Treebo for Business is Treebo's first-step towards realizing its vision of accelerating the shift towards automated, self-serve business demand. The first version of the product is targeted at travel managers, but in the coming months, Treebo will extend the program to employees and travel trade partners too. The product will also see a slew of new features including customized approval mechanism, alternate payment modes and tracking.
Currently, some of the leading organizations such as Sodexo and Thomas Cook are using Treebo for Business for booking a Treebo for their employees.
"Treebo for Business is a great product which helps me book hotels for my employees with ease. Previously making these bookings was a time consuming and a long drawn process but now with the automated tool, I can make bookings and even receive the confirmation vouchers in seconds. The experience is truly hassle free and a great time saver," said Ketan M Solanki, Sodexo.
"We are very excited to announce the launch of 'Treebo for Business.' Corporate demand has been one of the most important channels for us and hence, we continue to re-imagine the way corporates travel and make things simpler for our clients. For our existing partners, it would just be a new way of booking their same trusted hotel brand properties, just more conveniently," said Director - B2B and OTA Sales, Niharika Singh.
"We have received a tremendous response since the product launch last month with close to 500 corporates clients contributing 10 percent to our daily corporate bookings through Treebo for Business. Corporate travel is most ripe for technology-led disruption similar to where B2C travel was 10 years ago," added Singh.
