Christopherson Receives CHOICE Humanitarian’s Corporate Impact Award

SALT LAKE CITY – June 23, 2021 – Christopherson Business Travel received the Corporate Impact Award from CHOICE Humanitarian at their 13th Annual Breakfast of Humanitarians, held June 17.

For more than 25 years, Christopherson has supported CHOICE Humanitarian’s mission to end extreme poverty in remote and under-served communities around the world.

According to CHOICE Humanitarian Board Member and Volunteer Chief Financial Officer Bret Backman, the corporate impact award “recognizes a corporate partner that has really gone above and beyond in supporting CHOICE and its programs. Christopherson Business Travel has been a committed business partner of CHOICE Humanitarian for more than 25 years.”

Through a commitment to quality-of-life improvements in the broader community, Christopherson enables voluntary employee contributions to CHOICE and provides a 2:1 match. The company also sends a rotating group of employees on a week-long, international humanitarian expedition each year. 

“They firmly believe [in] sharing the wealth and taking care of the global community,” continued Backman. “Christopherson also offers travel services for our expeditions . . . through their CV Humanitarian Travel [division] and helping get the best prices for our travelers and also returning part of the proceeds to CHOICE.”

Christopherson’s involvement with CHOICE began when CEO Mike Cameron participated in one of their expeditions to a small village in central Mexico with two of his brothers, three of their sons, and their father. After experiencing how CHOICE carries out its model in the field, Cameron selected CHOICE as the non-profit organization Christopherson would work with and became a corporate partner. 

“We’ve had all sorts of opportunities to be blessed as a family by serving and participating with CHOICE,” Cameron said. “There is no better way for your employees to build relationships than to go on a company humanitarian expedition.”

Cameron also notes that “as a father and grandfather, it is incomprehensible to watch children go to bed hungry.” He concluded his award acceptance with a quote from his granddaughter, Alyssa Murray, after her CHOICE expedition to Guatemala: “I thought I was going to help end poverty and change the lives of people, but in the end they changed mine. They taught me how to be happy, they taught me how to be happy with very little. We all have an opportunity to come together and learn from each other.”

Christopherson Business Travel Unveils New Logo and Website, Affirms Commitment to Delivering a Transformative Human and Digital Experience

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Christopherson Business Travel, the independently-owned leader in intelligent business travel management, announced a rebrand of its visual identity with the unveiling of a new logo and website that reflect the company’s commitment to developing a transformative combined human and digital experience.


“Our new logo and redesigned website are just one piece of a larger transformation,” said Christopherson CEO Mike Cameron. “As our industry emerges from the dark tunnel of COVID, we are reinventing our products and services to more seamlessly integrate the personal, human experience with an innovative, digital experience. The balanced combination of those two elements is the future of business travel management and it’s essential for organizations that want to run cost-saving, traveler-friendly business travel programs in this post-COVID world.”

The new Christopherson logo is an evolution of the company’s previous logo, with a look and feel that illustrate Christopherson’s dedication to delivering insight, innovation, and global travel management through a committed, consultative partnership.


“The individual logo elements are a nod to Christopherson’s human and technological foundation,” noted Mike Harris, one of the logo’s designers, “with one oval representing their customer-focused approach to business travel and the other oval representing their powerful technology and analytics tools. Linking those two shapes further illustrates that symbolism, with the final icon representing the partnership and value Christopherson provides their customers.”

Safety for Female Business Travelers Top Priority for Companies Today Christopherson Business Travel Offers Data-rich SecurityLogic™

CHICAGO—Aug. 6, 2019—With 83% of female business travelers facing safety concerns, according to GBTA research findings, Christopherson Business Travel has heavily invested in data-rich technology to provide safety tools for their clients’ travelers.

“Because traveler safety is a top priority, we have enhanced our duty-of-care tool, SecurityLogic™ with a powerful Safety Check™ feature,” said Mike Cameron, CEO at Christopherson Business Travel. “With Safety Check, travel managers can quickly verify their travelers’ safety.

“When the traveler receives a Safety Check, they can respond from their digital device with, ‘I’m safe,’ or ‘I need assistance.’

“If they click, ‘I need assistance,’ they can detail their needs and exact location, and we provide instant options for additional communication so the travel manager can provide immediate help.”

Christopherson’s university clients frequently use Safety Check for students traveling abroad to verify their location.

As Brenda Rivers, founder and strategic consultant at Andavo Meetings & Incentives, a division of Christopherson Business Travel, attests, potential dangers can happen at the most unexpected times.

“When 200 travelers were en route to Baltimore, Hurricane Sandy unexpectedly slammed into downtown Baltimore with category 4 winds and severe rain, which caused power outages and endangered our travelers,” said Rivers. “SecurityLogic is a tool that allows travel managers to pinpoint travelers’ exact locations, use Safety Check to determine their safety and communicate instructions to stay or to re-route them.”

Providing travel safety, especially for women, begins with the corporate travel manager, according to Rivers, who has 27 years in the travel business.

“Travel managers should track travel data, provide pre-travel event information and list destination details for high-risk areas,” she said. “A manual alone doesn’t suffice anymore. You have to walk travelers through role-play scenarios so they know more clearly what to do if they face danger. Even table-talk simulations are effective.”

Duty of care is the travel communities’ moral and legal obligation to take more serious responsibility for the safety of travelers, according to Cameron.

“Safety is always an issue for women everywhere, but it is amplified when we travel,” said Krista Erçin-Maurer, manager of marketing at Christopherson Business Travel. “Studies show women are assaulted more than men, signifying that safety has to be part of every company’s duty of care plan.”

The National Survey of Family Growth found that 25 percent of women are raped by age 44, whereas only eight percent of men say they have been raped by that same age.

“We’re often in new locations and out of our comfort zone. When traveling abroad, navigating foreign languages and different cultures add another safety-risk dimension,” said Erçin-Maurer. “In addition to utilizing technology like SecurityLogic, companies need to institute travel policies and risk management safety training. We recommend the following tips:

  1. Partner with properties that have female-friendly rooms designated for safety, which are rooms on the third level or higher, close to the elevator, not at the end of the hallway, and are never near fire escapes or exterior entrances;
  2. Avoid booking late meetings for female travelers that require them to return to the hotel after dark;
  3. Use a car service and secure transport between all locations;
  4. Provide safety training before trips, particularly when your female travelers are headed to areas of the world that are more dangerous for women;
  5. Add communication requirements to your duty of care and risk management plans. Make sure female travelers know what to do and whom to contact if a safety incident occurs; and
  6. Provide reliable communication methods, e.g., cell phones and cell service, wherever a woman is traveling in the world.”

Overall, companies should review safety issues women face, talk to their female employees, understand their worries, provide SecurityLogic technology, and update policies to today’s needs.

For more information on SecurityLogic and updated travel safety policies for women, contact Christopherson Business Travel at cbtravel.com.

From Technology to Customer-centricity: How Christopherson Business Travel is Standing Out in a Digital World

CHICAGO—Aug. 5, 2019—Christopherson Business Travel has reinvented how travel management companies approach the customer experience, delivering elevated human interaction in a world inundated with high-tech.

“Customer expectations are shaped by the most dynamic consumer experiences they encounter in other industries,” said Mike Cameron, CEO at Christopherson Business Travel. “While it may seem counter-intuitive in this tech-focused world, being customer-centric requires much more than providing the latest and greatest in technology.”

By focusing on specific consumer touchpoints and the individual needs present at those touchpoints, Christopherson has developed an approach that allows them to not only lead with their robust technology platform, but leverage the depth of their team’s experience and expertise for the benefit of clients.

“We’ll never stop innovating new technology to get data into the hands of those who need it, when and where they need it,” Cameron said. “But we’re also working to shift the customer experience with an elevated layer of consultative and personalized experiences.”

Is Christopherson’s investment working?

“Absolutely, it works,” said Jennifer Phan, senior program manager at University of Southern California’s American Film Showcase. “Technology is essential, but with the travel complexities I manage, I definitely need a travel advisor who is knowledgeable, accessible, and dependable. For me, that person is my travel advisor at Christopherson.”

The more complex the demands, the more important it is for the digital, consultative, and personalized experiences to connect in a symbiotic way. The result is a customer-centric experience that pays in dividends for the client, Cameron said.

“Frequently, travel planning is so complicated that my advisor and I have to get on the phone,” said Phan, who manages 50 programs traveling to 50 countries. “Six months ago, she saved us by providing solutions with a series of international flights. She even worked through her Thanksgiving holiday to arrange very complex flight plans with our people who were traveling and had complicated issues.”

In order to deliver on its promise of customer-centricity, Christopherson has implemented new trainings and technology so travel advisors, account managers, and online support teams have a deep, integrated knowledge of the client, their specific needs and processes, and a personal relationship with them.

“My advisor knows my system—she knows me!” Phan said. “I can count on her to the point that it would be impossible to do my job without her. She’s flexible, understands our needs, is intuitive, has a sense of humor, and follows up. Those qualities have saved me and have made my trust in a travel agent partner, such as Christopherson, locked in solid.”

Christopherson Business Travel, headquartered in Salt Lake City, is the independently owned leader in business travel management, online travel tools, and business travel resources. As the twelfth largest business travel agency in the United States, with more than 480 team members and 5 full-service locations across the country, Christopherson supports more than $682 million in annual travel bookings.

Christopherson Business Travel Empowers Travel Managers with New Data Analytics Technology

SALT LAKE CITY—Aug. 13, 2018—Christopherson Business Travel, the leading business travel management company in the western United States, in connection with Domo, the world’s leading data visualization platform, is pushing technology to the next level for customers.

“Because data visualization is key to making smart business decisions today, we have developed a new collection of advanced travel analytics that show customers essential travel information in real time,” said Mike Cameron, CEO of Christopherson Business Travel.

Christopherson, which has built a robust technology team dedicated to designing tools and software for business travel managers and their travelers, has integrated Domo’s powerful data cards into the company’s travel manager dashboard AirPortal 360, providing an instant view of travel patterns and essential analytics.

“With Domo cards now embedded in AirPortal 360, our travel managers can bring all their unique travel data together in real-time, which provides powerful insight,” said Cameron. “From there, they can align the metrics that are relevant to them and bridge the gap between data and people.

“Being able to visualize the story their data tells allows them to take informed action that ultimately helps them run a more cost-effective travel program.”

With customer expectations at an all-time high, Christopherson was the first travel management company to integrate with Domo and leverage their robust data technology for the benefit of enhanced customer insights.

“We see this as an imperative move,” Cameron said. “In today’s world, you have to bring technology to the front and provide meaningful tools to move business forward. Without it, travel managers will fall behind.

“The versatility of AirPortal 360, combined with Domo’s expertise, delivers deeper customer insights.”

Currently, Christopherson has 16 unique data cards built and integrated into AirPortal 360, which travel managers can access to make more informed, data-backed decisions for their travel programs.

“For example, by drilling into our ‘Hotels by State’ and ‘Top 10 Hotel Chains’ data cards, a travel manager can analyze the patterns that would allow him or her to negotiate better vendor contracts,” said Cameron.

“By drilling into the ‘Online vs Full-Service’ and ‘Top 25 Travelers’ cards, a travel manager can gain insight into their travelers’ habits and align travel policies that help those travelers make decisions that could ultimately save the company money.

“Having this kind of real-time insight is beyond what travel management data provided in the past and will greatly benefit every company.”

Christopherson Business Travel, headquartered in Salt Lake City, is the independently owned leader in business travel management, online travel tools, and business travel resources. As the twelfth largest business travel agency in the United States, with more than 400 team members and 5 full-service locations across the country, the company supports more than $600 million in annual travel bookings.

Christopherson Business Travel’s Technology Provides Actionable Intelligence

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Christopherson Business Travel is launching a number of technology enhancements in conjunction with an initiative to advance their integrated software platform, AirPortal®, to a new level of travel management. By providing business intelligence that is digitally transformed into actions, these enhancements help travel managers direct their programs both proactively and preemptively.

“We live in an age of information overload,” said Mike Cameron, CEO of Christopherson. “Companies need more than just business intelligence to be competitive. But the challenge isn’t where or how to find the data, it’s what to do with it once you have it. We’re designing tools to help you figure that out. Our latest technology developments provide the advantage of ‘actionable intelligence’ to empower travel managers as they direct their travel programs faster and
smarter.”

Among the most notable enhancements are those made to Christopherson’s AirPortal 360TM dashboard for travel
managers, and Airtinerary®, the company’s intelligent itinerary for business travelers.

AirPortal 360 now includes My Action Items, a work-to-zero tool which pulls data from Christopherson’s various
technology and presents a list of action items. Such items may include travel plans needing approval, reminders to use
expiring airline tickets, risk management duties, expiring vendor contracts, and more.

“Providing our clients with a work-to-zero dashboard that allows them to manage all their pending action items in
real time is revolutionary for travel managers,” Cameron said. “My Action Items is one more way we are helping our
travel managers think forward and work strategically.”

Another enhanced tool is Christopherson’s Airtinerary, which now allows travelers to interact with their travel plans. Travelers can modify, add, or delete plans, and purchase trip insurance, among other actions, directly from the mobile-
responsive Airtinerary.

“‘Mobile first’ is one of our mantras,” Cameron said. “Whether it’s our existing technology or new tools, we develop
intuitive, elegant, and responsive technology that meets the needs of our clients where they are and helps them be
proactive about their pending action items.”

Among other enhancements is a new dashboard for the company’s Hotel Attachment tool, that helps travel managers
better manage compliance and risk by knowing which travelers’ plans are incomplete and provides the ability to send
reminders to complete those plans prior to travel.

Ensuring Travel Policy Compliance and Duty of Care

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Christopherson Business Travel is set to launch two new products to assist companies in
achieving higher travel policy compliance, duty of care fulfillment, and simplified travel management processes.
“Our two new technologies, Travel Approval and Hotel Attachment, are solutions that solve common problems faced
by corporate travel managers—the inconsistent and often undocumented travel approval process, and reduced travel
policy compliance as a result of low hotel attachment rates,” said Mike Cameron, Christopherson’s CEO.
The first technology, Travel Approval, is a digital notification process that obtains and tracks approvals from booking
to traveler to manager. Once a traveler makes a reservation—whether online or with a full-service travel agent—a
series of synchronized emails are sent to both the traveler and the traveler’s manager through which the booking can
be approved, modified, or canceled at any step or permission level.
“Online booking tools have done a good job in digitizing travel approvals but there has always been a gap in the
approval process for agent-assisted bookings,” Cameron said. “We built Travel Approval as a complete, digital solution
for approving those agent-assisted reservations. The result is the unification of online and full-service approvals and
a greater ability to enforce travel policy compliance.”
Christopherson’s second new technology, Hotel Attachment, is a hotel compliance system that identifies itineraries
with missing hotel bookings and provides the traveler with four options to close that gap: 1. Make a hotel reservation;
2. Request another reminder for a later date; 3. Attach a hotel reservation made outside the system to the itinerary;
and 4. Waive the need for a hotel reservation. With Hotel Attachment’s digital reminders, companies can ensure trip
plans are complete and hotel compliant prior to travel.
“Low hotel attachment results in weakened vendor negotiations and compromised duty of care,” Cameron said.
“Hotel Attachment solves these problems. First, it meets the needs of the travelers who want an acceptable hotel
included in every itinerary. Second, it meets the needs of the travel manager who wants savings, a knowledge of where
travelers are in order to fulfill duty of care responsibilities, and the ability to satisfy the company’s commitments with
contracted hotel vendors.”
Travel Approval and Hotel Attachment are both integrated into and supported by Christopherson’s proprietary
technology platform, AirPortal. They will be released at the 2015 Global Business Travel Association Convention in
Orlando, Florida, July 25-29.

Christopherson Business Travel Saves Companies Money with AirPortal 360

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Christopherson Business Travel, the leading business travel management company in the
western United States, today launched AirPortal 360TM, a new software tool designed to drive additional savings to
customers by integrating full-service travel management with online travel tools. From real-time tracking reports to
a fully integrated dashboard, AirPortal 360 allows companies to capture and analyze all company travel data to make
the most informed travel purchase decisions.

“Every company is looking for better ways to save money on business travel,” said Mike Cameron, Christopherson
Business Travel president. “AirPortal 360 is innovative technology because it allows the travel manager to implement
a host of services designed to make better travel decisions despite the complexities of their organizational needs and
today’s travel offerings.

“For example, one new feature we’ve added to AirBank®, a tool available in the AirPortal 360 dashboard, is an alert
system that notifies a company’s travel manager when unused airline tickets are nearing expiration dates. This allows
the manager to utilize those tickets and prevent a financial loss. In testing, we’ve found that companies in today’s
economic climate love this enhanced feature.”

AirPortal 360 also provides highly customizable real-time data, which fully integrates a company’s travel policy
simultaneously with the travel agents and online tools to filter preferences with online airline or hotel offerings. That
feature alone provides customers with pricing advantages not found in traditional purchase methods.

“By dealing with your travel management and expenses in a smarter fashion, companies can realize significant
savings,” Cameron said. “Using AirPortal 360 is like employing an extra team to find efficiencies and savings at your
company, but they’re not on your payroll.”

Other AirPortal 360 features include:
• Preferred vendor contracts fully integrated with the company travel policy
• Airtineraries®, intelligent itineraries that integrate a company’s travel policy summary to ensure compliance
• ValueLogic®, real-time data to measure the ROI on a company’s partnership with Christopherson
• AirBank®, an unused airline ticket management tool that tracks and enforces the reuse of those tickets
• Fully integrated travel spend reporting
• SecurityLogic®, with maps, alerts, and reports of travel risks to facilitate a company’s Duty of Care responsibilities
• Centralized access to all company travel data at detailed levels for travel managers; and
• Instant integration of updated travel policies for cost savings.

Christopherson Travel Group Launches Hotel Re-Check

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Christopherson Travel Group (CTG) today, announced the launch of a new travel tool, Hotel Re-Check, developed by their in-house IT department. Christopherson’s newest enhancement to customer service automatically alerts their agents to re-check for hotel room rate reductions three days prior to a client’s check in.
“This new technology will have tremendous value to our clients,” said Brent Carter, CTG Director of Operations. “It’s not uncommon for our agents, using Hotel Re-Check, to find the same room type for $25 to $50 lower (per night) than what was available at the time of booking. This can add up to significant savings to our corporate accounts,” said Carter.
The hotel industry, like the airline industry, raise and lower their rates according to availability of product, creating an ever-changing marketplace. Hotel chains have recently instituted guaranteed “best rate” price parity across all distribution channels-not just selected discount venues. Due to this fluid pricing environment, room rate reductions can happen close to the travel date. Now with Hotel Re-Check, Christopherson clients have the best chance at lowering their room rate without jeopardizing their travel plans.

With 100 employees and 22 offices across the Intermountain West, the company supports more than $90 million in annual travel bookings.

Christopherson Travel Group Launches ticketTrack Technology

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Christopherson Travel Group (CTG) has implemented proprietary software “ticketTrack” to track unused pre-paid electronic airline tickets for their business travelers. “ticketTrack technology gives our business travel clients the opportunity to recover thousands of dollars in travel expenses,” said Chad Maughn, Information Technology Manager.
E-tickets are the reality of modern travel and accurately finding and tracking unused e-tickets is important for businesses seeking to cut costs and eliminate waste. Industry experts estimate that 5 percent of non-refundable tickets bought by companies are never used. Some companies estimate their non-use rate as high as 20 percent. Christopherson’s new ticketTrack system will notify, track, and organize their clients’ unused airline tickets.
ticketTrack’s Features:
• ticketTrack logs into the database of every ticket issued by Christopherson’s reservation center and through client on-site locations.
• ticketTrack automatically notifies business travelers by e-mail 72 hours in advance of their flight if they have a non-refundable ticket.
• ticketTrack locates any tickets unused for travel that day and sends an alert to the issuing agent.
• ticketTrack enters the unused ticket into Christopherson’s on-line reporting system where business clients can check the value of the unused ticket, the expiration date, reissue fees, explanation why travel was cancelled, etc.
• ticketTrack prompts the travel consultant when a future booking is made to exchange the unused ticket rather than sacrifice its value.

4 Utah Travel Agencies Form “Best Travel Deals Group”

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—Four of Utah’s top travel agencies have formed a new company, Consolidated Travel Brokers, LLC. Consolidated Travel Brokers will market under the name Best Travel Deals Group. The four agency partners: Travel Zone, Cruise & Travel Masters, Good Times Travel, and Christopherson Travel Group have a combined booking and buying power of over $125 million. This new venture is the largest travel buyer in the Utah market.
The travel industry has been changing unprecedentedly over the last few years. As a result, much industry consolidation has been taking place. Best Travel Deals Group was established to expand the buying power of the four individual agencies without losing the many benefits the entrepreneurships have with local ownership and high-touch service. Best Travel Deals Group is currently negotiating with major travel operators and finalizing travel discount agreements.
“In the past year, we’ve weathered three major travel industry events: the downturn in the economy, the tragedy of September 11th, and the final cut-elimination-of commissions by the airlines. These events converged in a way that created ‘the perfect storm’ for travel agents. Successful travel agencies have had to re-think the way they do business in order to navigate the storm,” said Mike Cameron, Christopherson Travel Group president. “The formation of Best Travel Deals Group is the result of four entrepreneurs sailing together to reach a new destination of greater value for our clients.”
“With the travel industry changing on a regular basis, those agencies that can be most flexible will have the greatest success,” said Kent Smith, owner of Good Times Travel. “Efficiencies of scale emerge as we create friendly, competitive alliances with the right vendors. It will allow us to offer the best pricing available-and really, that’s what it’s all about.”
