The Brief

For the past year, World Travel, a BCD Travel company, has organized travel and accommodations for three major departments at the University of Tennessee – Academic, Medical Center and all 14 of their Athletic teams. The goal is to provide the University with a hassle free experience, while creating the most cost effective travel arrangements.

The Solution

In order to provide the desired services, World Travel developed a competition calendar that allowed for better organization of the travel process. This calendar analyzed a number of different variables including travel times, class times, and cost. In addition, the on-site agent assisted in scheduling airline, hotel, rental cars and ground transportation for both team travel and recruiting trips.

The Results

Throughout the past year, World Travel has been able to successfully plan and orchestrate all of the travel arrangements for the teams and organizations at the University. Through an extensive network of resources, we were able to provide a consistent service delivery that emphasized a high quality experience at an affordable price.
