TripActions wins global account of Scottish engineering group

TripActions has been selected by Glasgow-based engineering company, The Weir Group, to manage its travel globally.

Weir will transition from more than 15 disparate providers to a single cloud-based platform designed to meet the needs of its 11,000 employees.

“We took the opportunity during the pandemic, when there was less travel, to re-evaluate our travel programme with the objective to provide a consistent and streamlined travel solution across the organisation,’ said Betty Grogan, Global Travel Manager for Weir.

‘First and foremost, it was important we align on employee safety and sustainability benefits, but also to optimise savings, quality and service, and compliance with a single solution.’

The new partnership comes after several high-profile wins for TripActions, including Springer Nature, Primark, Heineken and Informa.

Over the past year, TripActions has invested about $400 million in Europe, acquiring Reed & Mackay in May of 2021, Berlin-based Comtravo in February of 2022, and Scandinavian travel management company Resia in March of 2022.

TripActions’ in-house support agents, distributed around the world, will support The Weir Group’s travellers with 24/7/365 service over chat, email, and phone from multiple offices and in local languages.

Implementation will be completed globally, with initial support to more than 20 Weir locations.
