Carlson Wagonlit Travel Launches Corporate Travel Program With MasterCard
MasterCard Worldwide and Carlson Wagonlit Travel are launching a global, card-based enhanced travel data program for corporate travel buyers in China.
The program will ensure that CWT clients who pay with MasterCard commercial cards have consistent, high quality data related to travel and entertainment expenditures around the world. This will enable organizations to more rapidly implement and optimize a corporate card program on a global basis. The program is also available in Australia and Singapore as well as thirteen European markets of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
At the core of the new enhanced travel data program is a fully integrated, card-based global network that will allow MasterCard issuers to offer companies of all sizes, as well as government agencies, the ability to access, analyze and act upon more complete data related to their travel program. Integrating travel program information such as policy rules, itineraries, and accounting codes with actual expenditures can help CWT clients with MasterCard corporate cards to achieve savings.
The program will be introduced in other markets over time. Travel content from CWT will be fully integrated and delivered via the MasterCard corporate payments suite of solutions, including SmartData, the leading global payments information and reporting tool.
