‘KDS Now! 2011’ To Bring Travel & Expense Best Practice Into Focus

Aviation - 25th January 2011

London, January 25, 2011 – Industry anticipation is rising as KDS, the leading European supplier of integrated travel and expense (T&E) management systems, confirms details of the ‘KDS Now! 2011’ event at the Etoile Saint Honoré in Paris on February 2.

KDS is creating the ‘KDS Now! 2011’ event as a forum for sharing knowledge and insight into this increasingly important aspect of business finance. Companies invest up to 8% of their annual turnover in staff travel and, on the long road to economic recovery, optimising the return on that investment should be a priority.

‘KDS Now! 2011’ will be hosted by leading travel journalist and broadcaster Simon Calder. Over 450 people are already scheduled to attend.

A full programme for ‘KDS Now! 2011’ will be backed by the launch of a white paper drawn from the results of the latest KDS survey, analysing how organisations are coping with the complexities of modern T&E management, from the smallest procedural details through to return on investment (ROI).

Yves Weisselberger, chief executive officer of KDS, says: “As a business our focus is on delivering an enhanced ROI when it comes to T&E and ‘KDS Now! 2011’ is the embodiment of everything we do. Businesses are getting back out into the travel market but costs are at a premium so this event is an opportunity to take the pulse of business travel and to discuss best practice.”
