Serko Launches its Case For Revolution In Small Business Travel

07 June 2016

Auckland, New Zealand. 7 June 2016 – Serko Ltd. (SKO.NZ) The leader in online travel booking and expense management for business unveiled their case for revolution in small business travel in Auckland today.

Darrin Grafton, Serko CEO said “For small and medium businesses, travel is fundamentally broken. They can’t get access to the technology, or the deals that allow them to compete with their bigger counterparts on a level playing field. We think this is wrong and we are doing something about it.” 

Serko’s travel management solution for small and medium businesses is called and is built on 7 core principles:

  1. Business is always better done face to face and business travel is good
  2. Being small should be an advantage, not a burden and with the right solutions, it can be
  3. Travel Expert services should be something you pay for IF you need them, not in case you need them
  4. Travel-related bill shock is bad, and with the right technology, can be a thing of the past
  5. Keeping employees safe whilst on the road is important. And with the new legislation in force in NZ and AU it’s critical
  6. Travel is personal and employees should be empowered to book their own travel in an easy to use, yet controlled way
  7. By negotiating together SME’s should be able to get the same deals that the biggest corporates get

The principles are outlined in detail in a manifesto for change, which can be downloaded right now

Darrin continued “If you agree that business travel is broken and that there should be a better way, then you can sign up now to be first to use the service when it goes live later in July.”

Anyone signing up will go into the draw to win one of two vintage Louis Vuitton travel bags (T’s and C’s apply).
