More than a travel company

At Cadence, we don't just take reservations and send you reports. We actually manage travel programs. No matter which corporate travel services you're after, they are only as effective as how they are managed and how they meet your goals. Is travel part of your company culture? Do your business objectives rely on travel? Do your top travelers need great travel experiences?  

 

And when it comes to your relationship with your travel management company, do you need an account manager who executes travel policies, implements online booking tools, monitors spend patterns and suggests behavioral improvements? If you answered, "yes," you are ready to elevate your travel program.

No, really.

What are the two most over used words in the travel industry? Customer Service. Everyone says they do it. But at Cadence, we define customer service, every day, with every traveler, on every trip. In fact, our employees are trained and incentivized on customer service standards like response time, efficient problem solving, effective communication, and more.

 

While we know it is an important part of our own company culture, we also survey our customers throughout the year to check in on our customer service outcomes. The averages of our results are below.
