TripActions wins Unilever global account

TripActions has been selected by London-based Unilever to handle its global travel programme.

A joint announcement from the tech-led TMC and the Fortune 500 company said Unilever “sought a new partner for global corporate travel after determining that its existing solution was not a future fit for its workforce or model of work”.

The global provider of consumer goods has 148,000 employees in 77 countries worldwide working across its 400 brands.

After a year-long process evaluating a number of TMCs, Unilever chose TripActions to support its future-fit vision for travel management and technology, said the statement.

“The future-fit programme — the core belief underpinning Unilever’s approach to help employees thrive and adapt to the impact of evolving technologies and ways of working —demands technology partners that align with Unilever’s vision to empower employees to take control of their working lives,” it said.

It said the company “envisioned a future fit digital travel program that empowered employees to self-serve everyday travel with just a few clicks, making life simpler for travellers and creating meaningful and personalised experiences” and that its goals also included increasing sustainability efforts to achieve net zero emissions and a +90% platform adoption rate “to reduce manual tasks and increase work efficiency”.

“Unilever is committed to ensuring that our employees are empowered with the right technology and lean processes that help them to thrive in this highly digital future of work,” says Mithlesh Singh, Global Travel Process, EX & Transformation Manager at Unilever.

TripActions co-founder and CEO, Ariel Cohen, added: “Innovative companies like Unilever understand that the future of work is a digital-first user experience that actually helps employees do their jobs better and more efficiently. We are thrilled to be the travel programme of choice for Unilever and look forward to a long-standing, successful partnership.”

TripActions’ recent Europe-based enterprise customer wins also include Heineken in the Netherlands, SumUp in the UK, Nilfisk in Denmark, and Primark in Ireland.
