American Express Launches New SMB Travel Program
American Express bolstered its tradition of serving business travelers this month with the launch of a corporate travel management program named aXcentis. Small and medium businesses with up to $10 million in annual travel budgets can save money through American Express' relationships with air carriers, car rental companies, and hotel chains.

In a statement to reporters, American Express spokesperson John Berkeley revealed that the company was excited about helping aXcentis clients save even more money by analyzing travel spending and "recycling" unused budgets. "In the new normal of business travel, where companies will begin traveling again but with likely spending constraints, there is a clear opportunity for these companies to invest their travel spending more strategically," Berkeley said.

Leveraging its network of local American Express Travel representatives, the company provides aXcentis clients with face-to-face strategy planning, as well as round-the-clock access to centralized travel specialists who can help with trip booking and emergency recovery. Mobile professionals can consolidate their travel tracking with aXcentis online tools, allowing managers to view the locations of their team members in real time.
