Matalan is a leading fashion and home retailer, with an impressive 230 UK stores and 30 International franchise stores within Europe and the Middle East, supported by a rapidly growing online channel.
Historically, they have always had their own internal travel team, but the lack of an effective TMC led to a lack of consistency on what was booked, and where it was booked, while there were also invoicing discrepancies and concern over the lack of a duty of care.
We provided a fully transparent, one stop shop for all their travel needs, and the results were outstanding.

Implementing a One Stop Shop TMC.
Many of our clients in the retail sector have a global network of stores and franchises, with members of their team required to travel around the UK and to various locations around the world on a regular basis.
We have an in-house suite of corporate travel technology, Go2Book, Go2Insight and Go2Track, which uses qualitative data to analyse where savings can be made on the booking policies or in the booking process.
