How does it work?
A travel request and approval process is essential for every business and especially for large organisations.
For instance, larger organisations can require a lot more travel request processes because they have a larger employee count, of course.
So, the quicker the process, the less time consumed. Therefore the higher the benefit will be.
This Kianda travel request form app handles travel request and its entire approval process in a single location.
It allows selection from travel types such as flight/ferry/train and so on.
The information may differ from employees, depending on travel type. Therefore, displays fields are dynamic, according to the user selection.
Multiple approval levels in a digital app make it easy to track
Also, to have multiple approval levels, approval processes can be extended.
This depends on conditions such as the value, type of travel mode, reason for travelling and so on.
Overall, a travel request form starts with an employee requesting for travel tickets and accommodation arrangements while providing purpose of the travel and passenger details. Next, the travel department or HR review the request and make the necessary arrangements.
In addition, the workflow can expand to allow employee travel document validation or to adjust fields and settings based on an employee’s profile.
When an employee starts a request, their profile including their passport details can be pre-populated based on, the data stored in your IT systems.
The Kianda system issues a notification to a traveller if their passport has expired or if it is due to expire.
The system can flag to the travel team if a passport is expired. If required, it can also prevent submitting travel requests for flights.
Final cost reports by a business unit, cost center, department or individual can be achieved via reporting dashboards.
In addition, this workflow can me made visible to all employees, whether they are in your IT systems or not.
By using anonymous (public) forms, you can share online forms publicly and let your staff submit requests from anywhere.
