And they’ll get better at it as providers — incumbents and plenty of new-entrants — fine-tune services. There’s also collaboration among colleagues, engagement between employers and employees, virtual payment applications, trip disruption services, risk management and on and on. It’s not hard to envision phones and tablets playing a role in pretty much every aspect of managed travel programs and an individual’s own travel experience.
