Hallmark Cards has appointed travel management company Redfern to manage its travel requirements.
Bradford-based Hallmark UK, which supplies greetings cards to a range of high street chains as well as through its own retail outlets, wanted to increase travel efficiency within the PLC.
Redfern’s award-winning online tool tRIPS fitted the bill perfectly and Hallmark can now book travel, consolidate invoicing, track employee travel and access management information with the click of a mouse.
Hallmark was also impressed with Redfern’s customer service and 24/7 access to a team of travel specialists.
Daniel Phillips, Head of Sales at Redfern, said: “Redfern is attracting some of the biggest names in UK retail. Redfern is helping its customers to drive down the cost of business travel and make business travel as straightforward and hassle-free as possible.”
Redfern’s tRIPS tool gives users access to air, rail, hotel and ground transport providers in one easy-to-use online portal. Redfern provides travel management for a string of top brands, including Holland & Barrett and Bon Marche, and also supplies the UK and Scottish governments.
Dale Priestley, Head of Indirect Procurement of Hallmark UK said: “We needed a travel booking solution which offered excellent customer support and automated reporting. First and foremost it needed to be simple to use. Redfern’s system is smart and intuitive and has been very well received by our employees.”
