CTM Portal: End-to-end travel management solution featuring pre-trip approval, fare forecasting, booking, traveller tracking and business intelligence reporting.
CTM Mobile: Manage every aspect of the business travel experience from a mobile device, from booking flights, hotels and car hire to itinerary and risk management.


Corporate Travel Management (CTM) is transforming business travel in the UK and Europe with the release of a new state-of-the-art travel technology suite. The global travel management company showcased its new tools – CTM Portal and CTM Mobile – at the Business Travel Show in London last week.

“Great technology is central to delivering value and productivity to CTM’s customers,” said Brian Sheerin, CTM UK/Europe Chief Technology Officer. “The new CTM SMART Technology suite gives users access to the most innovative and meaningful travel tools at their fingertips 24/7. The product has been developed specifically for the European market to drive cost savings, efficiency and safety across corporate travel programmes.”


The CTM Portal allows travel bookers, travel managers and travellers to access their travel tools and travel-related information in one place. Users have 24/7 access to a range of innovative tools, which provide greater control and improved peace of mind.

“CTM’s in-house tech team works directly with customers to develop technology that is adaptive and tailored to their individual needs,” said Brian Sheerin. “That’s why our new Portal is customisable down to user type and region, driving specific outcomes and providing value for every stakeholder.”

CTM Mobile is a simple, immersive and intuitive travel companion. Mirroring CTM’s next generation booking tool, Lightning, the app allows users to book, manage and organise business travel anytime and anywhere.

“We understand that today’s business traveller enjoys an increasingly empowered role in the travel management process,” Brian Sheerin said. “It’s imperative that technology fulfils the needs of both the traveller and the company. The CTM Mobile app does just that, by incorporating mobile booking and trip management tools that give travellers greater control over their travel experience, whilst maintaining corporate policy compliance and duty of care.”
