IHG® Business Edge: Working Together with SMEs for a smarter way to manage travel
Small- and medium-sized businesses have limited time and spending dollars to arrange corporate travel for employees. There was a need for a streamlined process that provided travel managers the option to make corporate travel unified. IHG® Business Edge helps fill this need with a free-to-use corporate travel solution allowing exclusive access to attractive benefits, a one-stop-shop portal with spending and savings data and the ability to book directly with a guaranteed discount, curated educational content, company travel metrics and a forum where members can connect with industry peers to discuss and seek advice about relevant business topics.
“With IHG Business Edge, we have put together a full-service portal that utilizes our existing expertise and customer insights to give travel managers of small and midsize companies a solution that’s easy to manage and gives employees benefits that they want,” said Tamara Laster, vice president of global sales strategy, IHG. The program was voted 2019’s and 2020’s Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program by the readers of Global Traveler.
IHG Business Edge offers an online portal with access to accelerated loyalty status, visibility into travel spend and savings data for travel managers, discounts and more.
Employees automatically get upgraded to IHG Rewards Gold Elite status after their first IHG Business Edge stay and can enjoy the guaranteed discount for their personal travel as well as business.
Travelers can book with their corporate discounts on the IHG Business Edge portal, IHG.com or on the IHG app, via their travel management company or through their employers’ online booking tool by using their unique corporate ID.
