Global Engineering Services Leader, Multi-Billion Annual Revenue, 27K+ employees, operations in 70+ countries on 5 continents

“We engaged TCG to provide strategic travel advisory and data benchmarking support and assistance for both global and regional needs across our Air and Hotel programs. We did not have the internal resources or external experience and software tools that were needed to optimize these programs. We were very impressed by their depth of expertise, highly positive reviews from other clients, and level of professionalism.

Having now worked with TCG on a number of engagements, we have been pleasantly surprised by how they make us feel as though we are their only client. They are truly experts in this subject matter as well as friendly, patient, adaptive, and always willing to answer any questions, regardless of whether we are in the middle of a project or not.

They truly differentiate themselves by their level of interaction, ability to make complex issues seem simple, as well as the respect they receive from the Travel Agency industry. Other firms are always trying to sell us something or nickel and dime us. TCG has never done either of these.

They have delivered significant value for our organization, always delivering outstanding return on our investment. As one example, after engaging TCG our Airline spend was HALF of what it was two years ago with the same number of trips.

TCG’s ability to combine their experience with a high level of customization and focus for our unique needs has made them our “go to” partner for a wide variety of initiatives.”
