Start closing the gap between ideas and improved performance with our strategy services.

Once you’ve assessed your program and understand where you are and what options are available, we put those insights into action with a strategic plan. Leveraging our TCO-TMPE® and broad spend under management approach, we’ll laser our focus on specific objectives and chart a path for achieving key integrated travel, meetings, payment & expense program requirements.

Capturing Program TCO

At TCG Consulting, we wrote the methodology behind TCO-TMPE® (Total Cost of Ownership for Travel, Meetings, Payment and Expense).

TCG Practice Areas

Create a tailored plan using our expertise and extensive strategy services that integrates travel, meetings, payment & expense.


Ensure your travel program strategy links to your organizational imperatives and prioritizes savings, cost avoidance, user acceptance, and new revenue opportunities. At TCG Consulting, we’ll bring in your travel spend data from multiple sources and validate global program spend to understand opportunities and create an effective plan.



We create a Strategic Meetings Management Program (SMMP), and develop and align your meeting registration, approval process, sourcing and contracting, planning and execution, payment and expense reconciliation, data analysis and reporting and technology solutions.



From increasing your financial incentives and rebates, to expanding spend volumes and leverage,  we help your users not only engage with but enjoy the payment programs, technology and data capturing initiatives in your company.



We believe expense strategies should be based on the total cost of ownership (TCO). Our expense strategies look to harmonize your expense processes to create and deploy standardization across your company, overcoming complex inefficient structures, acquisitions that brought inconsistent processes, or outdated technology.


Tactical Program Development

We will help you understand the “real” tactics that make your high-level strategy a reality. Our plan delineates how we measure success and keeps time-sensitive factors in mind—such as key program milestones, contract renewal deadlines or a supplier agreement expiration date.

Strategic Scope Determination

At TCG, we help you keep important goals on track with a clearly defined project scope. Our team works with you to determine the total cost of ownership for travel, meetings, payment and expense (TCO-TMPE®)—and which initiatives fall within your strategy services.

Get clarity on the roles of the individuals who will execute your strategic plan. As we map a path forward, TCG Consulting will help your team know who is responsible for doing what.
