How Customer Service Can Be a Major Upside for You
Your work days are busy enough without adding the complexities of business travel to the mix. From researching the best deals, to booking flights and hotel accommodations, to troubleshooting delays and cancellations, business travel can send your stress level soaring, especially when you’re doing it all on your own.
For anyone facing the constant challenges of business travel, good customer service from a leading-edge business travel provider or platform can be welcome port in the storm. It can mean the difference between wanting to take flight from your business travel responsibilities to enjoying a stress-free and productive trip. Bottom line: The higher the level of customer service, the easier your business trip will be.
The rise of digital technology has ushered in unprecedented advances in customer service, which you can leverage to make your life easier and your business trips more cost-effective. Online platforms and mobile apps can put business travel solutions at your fingertips and simplify a process that is often cumbersome and frustrating for inexperienced travelers. With a click or a tap, you can access the support and guidance you need to ensure your trip runs smoothly.
Customer Service at the Speed of You
The dizzying pace of your day-to-day work life makes on-the-go business travel information especially appealing. According to our recent study, fifty-two percent of business travelers surveyed across generational groups consider real-time flight information the most useful feature of a business travel app.
Digital technology not only streamlines the booking process, it also expands the range of travel options available to you. Survey participants consider the ability to easily change flights and reservations one of the most useful features of a business travel app.
In today’s digitally-driven travel environment, it’s reasonable to expect a higher level of ease, convenience, and service than ever. Whatever your needs and preferences, you should be able to count on customer service that goes above and beyond to ensure planning and managing your business trip goes from stressful to successful.
Tech With a Personal Touch
While digital technology offers many upsides, it can seem impersonal. 24/7 access to live customer support and the ability to interact with a business travel specialist at any time is a huge advantage that could put you at ease and relieve you of the guesswork from planning and booking business trips. At Upside, we personalize your business travel experience to give you the best of both worlds: leading-edge, real-time digital data for the best travel options possible and always-on from our Navigators for the best trip possible. We’re here to help you any way we can.
