IMPLEMENTATION CASE STUDY…

Ensuring a smooth transition

JDX Consulting had no documented policy or defined process when it came to business travel. Each individual booked travel online using their personal credit card and claimed back on expenses. The reconciliation process for each individual expense claim placed a particular strain on the Finance team and took out 4 working days of time a month. The company also lacked visibility of their travellers which caused concerns over duty of care. The lack of policy and compliance also contributed to increased costs and concerns about best value.

Gray Dawes Head of Sales met with JDX Consulting to understand their key requirement’s; a local personal service, travel policy development, value for money, visibility of their travellers, a succinct payment mechanism. She then developed a JDX specific Scope of Services document which detailed our offering. A kick-off implementation call was scheduled which included; Lead Consultant, Operations Manager, Head of Sales, JDX Travel lead, Implementation Manager.
