Travel Management with Digital HRMS

The Digital HRMS travel management software is designed for faster approval of travel requests and it involves various steps as outlined by the diagram below.

Now, let us take a quick look at the steps and learn a little about their significance.

Step 1: Verification

If the employee raises a request for international travel, the system automatically verifies the Passport details and Visa Details of the employee before creation of Travel Request.

Step 2: Approval of Advance

Once the employee has valid Passport and Visa details or is travelling within the country, there is the option to apply for Advance and the notification for the same is sent to the Accounts department.

Step 3: Accommodation Details Added

The travel management software of Digital HRMS allows the employees to add accommodation details as applicable, along with the Travel Request for easy approval and reference.

Step 4: Approval of Request

Once the employee has created and submitted the Travel Request with all the relevant details, the request is sent to the Reporting Manager for approval, with the details accessible to the Manager. Access control feature of the Travel Management software ensures this data is only visible to the Managers who have been granted access to this by the system.

Step 5: Creation of Itinerary Options

Once the Travel Request is approved by the Reporting Manager of the employee, it moves to the Travel Desk for creation of itinerary options. The Travel Desk has the provision to submit multiple itinerary options.

Step 6: Approval of Itinerary Options

The Itinerary options created and submitted by the Travel Desk is sent to the Travel Desk Manager for his/her approval. If the itinerary options are rejected, they are sent back to the Travel Desk for modifications.

Step 7: Booking of Tickets

Once the itinerary options are approved, the next step involves booking of tickets by the Travel Desk and submitting the tickets on the Digital HRMS travel management software.

Step 8: Request Closed

Once the Tickets are closed, the Request is marked as ‘Closed’ and this is conveyed to everyone in the loop, including the employee and the Reporting Manager.

Step 9: Reporting

The Digital HRMS Travel management software offers advanced reporting features to enable accurate and quick analysis of travel data and plan travels accordingly. This feature is a must have in the HR software tools today.
