OVERVIEW
 

TMC Review & Sourcing

Your Travel Management Company (TMC) in many cases is key to an effective and cost efficient travel management program. It is important to establish the right level of service and technology support offered by your TMC as these can vary considerably and affect the success of a travel management program and savings achieved. The correct sourcing of a TMC is probably the most important decision you make.

Inform Logistics works in collaboration with your Organization to assess servicing requirements nationally, regionally or globally. We help identify the TMCs that are best suited to your needs and focus on their geographical footprint, service configuration and delivery, account management and technology.

We then proceed with the development of a tailored RFP built around your specific requirements. We will help project manage the full tender process and conduct a complete analysis of the bids including the benchmarking by region of services and pricing in-line with your travel needs. We will be by your side for the whole journey, and although we will not influence your final choice, we will present you with enough facts for you to make an informed decision.

Key points of the review:

  • Develop a strategic TMC sourcing program to meet requirement
  • Build a plan to optimize travel technology
  • Create a tailored RFP with service and financial templates
  • Construct a weighted scoring matrix for each stage of the process
  • Produce an analysis of responses and financial offers
  • Formulate a post negotiation support and guidance plan

Ian – I truly enjoyed reading your report which reflected not only the professionalism of the consultancy but also the wish to undergo the extra mile as if you were in the shoes of our executive managers with the responsibility to make strategic decisions on this complex subject. This is unfortunately not common nowadays including in what respectable firms in the industry are providing at times. I appreciate also your flexibility and understanding of our Organization which allowed us to benefit from your world class expertise

Thanks to your guidance we have achieved a successful global TMC and Card RFP

Thanks to your guidance we have achieved a successful global TMC and Card RFP! You have a great way of cutting through the noise and dealing with the real issues, and there is a great deal of noise surrounding travel (as I’m sure you know). I do want to have a follow up session(s) once we hit six months and so look forward to continuing the effort with you then, by then we should understand where the pain points are and it would be great to get good guidance from your team on how to soften those.

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

Your guidance and dedication to the project was exemplary

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work to ensure our travel procurement initiatives did not go off the rails. Your guidance and dedication to the project was exemplary – particularly in helping us avoid breaking any European rules of procurement. Your flexibility yet professionalism was much appreciated by the team and the discipline and unbiased approach you introduced had not gone unnoticed. Thank you again for your help and dedication.

UK GOVERNMENT

Your support and experience was of great value

I would like to say that we would not have achieved the quality and result of the RFP without you. Your support and experience was of great value. It was our pleasure as well to work with you – you calmed us down when we freaked out and made us laugh with your great sense of humour – which is the best!
