Technical Name: OROLE_0032
The travel manager forms the in-house travel policy and heads the cooperative dealings with the providers of travel services. His main tasks include:
The BW Business Content reporting function supports the travel manager in the evaluation of data for planned and existing trips and in the settlement of these. Using BW he can obtain, for example, information about travel destinations, sales volumes with hotel chains and car rental companies, or expense receipt statistics immediately.
The use of the queries available in BW Content makes both the control of the travel policy and the development of in-house strategies for the reduction of travel costs easier. The data determined strengthens the travel manager's negotiating position when negotiating rates with respective flight, car rental and hotel providers.
Tasks in the Business Information Warehouse
The travel manager's tasks are primarily of a strategic nature. In order to accomplish these tasks, BW Business Content makes information available in workbooks.
Each task corresponds to a cluster of one or more workbooks. The workbooks in Travel Management each contain one query that delivers the relevant information. The tasks (clusters) are logically grouped together into task areas (sub-channels).
