Hogg Robinson Group (HRG), the award-winning international corporate services company, and Syngenta Crop Protection AG have successfully delivered the global implementation of the Syngenta travel programme. This programme has consolidated suppliers, brought about efficiencies of scale and created visibility of travel information whilst setting new worldwide standards. HRG has been working with Syngenta for over a decade on various travel management requirements for several markets.
In August 2010 Syngenta, one of the world’s leading agrochemical companies with over 26,000 employees in more than 90 countries, asked HRG to maximise efficiencies and create global standards on travel by implementing a global plan. The plan needed to incorporate different elements such as: global supplier negotiation assistance delivered by HRG Consulting, extra travel policy compliance measures, global pricing desk support and online booking tools. HRG i-Suite, HRG’s proprietary web-based portal that integrates self-service reservation tools, data consolidation and reporting, expense management and traveller tracking capabilities were implemented to complement the savings plan.
