Okta ‘App of the Week’: Taking the Hassle out of Business Travel with Egencia

The holiday season’s upon us, which means travel’s top of mind for consumers and businesses alike. It’s a stressful enough time – and that’s without the added nuisance of managing business travel itineraries manually. Enter Egencia, a subsidiary of Expedia, Inc., and a member of the Okta Application Network. Egencia is the fifth largest travel management company in the world, helping businesses easily book, change and otherwise manage all their corporate travel needs.

Why it’s cool: We live in an online world, but an Internet connection isn’t always a reality when traveling. Egencia recognizes that travelers often need a real person to call to change a ticket on the fly or resolve other emergencies that creep up. With Egencia’s click-to-call customer service, business travelers can get their problem resolved – whether it’s online or on the phone – with the simple tap of a button. And Egencia’s mobile apps for iPhone and other devices provide a full-service, on-the-go concierge. That means Egencia can follow travelers along throughout their journey, providing instant and location-specific flight and transportation details, as well as interactive maps that provide turn-by-turn direction to hotels and local businesses. Plus, Egencia offers complete support in eight languages.

So whether you’re flying to Bangalore for a meeting, or the South Pacific for a retreat, Egencia and the cloud take the guesswork out of corporate travel. That’s why Egencia is our identity management partner of the week.
