International travel and expense (T&E) management solution provider KDS, together with nuTravel (North America) and Serko (Asia-Pacific), has launched the Mundi Global Alliance, an alliance aimed at providing global corporations with the best products, services, content and user experience while ensuring local expertise and best-in-breed technology.
The Mundi Global Alliance is the coming together of three best in class online booking tools from around the globe and will enable customers to select one tool globally with true, focused in region support and service. All too often global organisations sacrifice local and regional requirements in the pursuit of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. The alliance means the increasingly common challenge of global convenience with local content and support will finally be surpassed.
“KDS has always had global customers, and in fact last year our global customer footprint grew faster than the rest of our business,” said KDS chief executive officer (CEO) Dean Forbes. “By participating in the Mundi Alliance, we will be able to deliver an even better service, even more content and even better support across the globe by working with our alliance partners. Serko and nuTravel are market leaders in their regions and so working with them closely will benefit our customers greatly.”
