We launched our Merchants of Helcim series to showcase some of our merchants and get to know their stories. We're so proud to be able to provide payment and software solutions for a wide range of businesses across many different industries, and this series gives us an opportunity to introduce some of the great people that we get to work with every day.
In this episode of Merchants of Helcim, we're visiting Elite Travel Management. They are a corporate travel management company that helps Alberta based organizations spending between $100,000 and $5 million on travel per year to consolidate their bookings and save money.
We met with Morgan Windle, the VP of Operations, who toured us through their space in the historic Devenish building on 17th Avenue in Calgary, AB. We appreciated how cozy and relaxing Elite Travel Management has made their space while keeping the unique historical aspects that make the building special intact.
Morgan shared how Elite Travel Management has invested in special technologies to allow them to better serve companies working with rotational staff and other large organizations with complex travel needs. She explained that companies can benefit by working with a travel management company to bring together all their travel spending in one place and capitalize on available discounts and special rates. Elite Travel Management has access to over 10,000 hotel properties in their system with corporate discounts that organizations can benefit from. So if you're a business owner with bloated travel expenses or who have multiple team members booking travel independently, be sure to check them out.
Elite Travel Management has been using Helcim for its Virtual Payments. Morgan noted that the PO number is a really great feature for them because it allows their clients to bill expenses back to a different company or client. She explained that being able to direct invoices in this way has really simplified their billing process.
A big thank you to Elite Travel Management for having us out to your offices, we had a great time learning more about your business!
