CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, and its Energy, Resources and Marine (ERM) division, have signed a preferred global agreement with The Visa Team, a specialist in visa-handling services for the oil and gas, mining, and marine industries. The partnership creates an innovative technology and services platform for the CWT ERM customers to leverage during the design and optimization of its business and crew travel visa/document management process.
“Travelers in the energy, resources and marine sectors — particularly crew & seafarers — have very different visa requirements from the business traveler,” said Raphaël Pasdeloup, Senior VP and Global Head of CWT Energy, Resources & Marine. “Crew coordinators managing their company’s mobility operations often have a complex array of emails and spreadsheets to facilitate the various visa needs of its crew. Our new partnership will see us integrate technologies to help simplify this process, through advanced features including automated trip assessments, live status updates and expiration alerts.” Pasdeloup concluded; “This Partnership not only is a natural fit within CWT ERM’s mobility ecosystem, but also directly benefits our clients by simplifying a high touch and very critical process.”
“Today’s ERM clients need innovative thinking, global scale and specialized expertise,” said Tracy Ramsey, Co-Founder, The Visa Team.
Erika Licon, The Visa Team’s other co-founder, added, “The Visa Team’s aim is to compliment CWT ERM services by providing compliant, positive, and seamless visa solutions to their clients, allowing peace of mind for both their travelers and managers.”
The global partnership agreement is available in the USA now, with Europe and Asia Pacific progressively rolling out over the coming months.
