It also focused on reducing costs, optimizing processes and automation. It expanded its online booking tools to nine additional countries, and a campaign to change traveler behavior—advance booking, restricted airfares, limited ticket changes and higher OBT use—has decreased the average trip cost. Eighty percent of U.S.-booked air spend came through approved online tools, and 40 percent of those were completed without an agent's help. Additionally, 95 percent of travel is preapproved. U.S.-booked air spend for Deutsche Bank fell $4 million in 2017 and is projected to stay the same in 2018.In 2018, the company aims to make its expense management platform and processes more efficient and again push down costs. It's looking at opportunities like artificial intelligence tools for expense and perhaps booking and will look at post-ticketing price assurance airfare tools. The bank has a single global travel policy. Eighty percent of the organization's 2017 U.S.-booked air volume was for domestic travel. Deutsche Bank's card program is individual bill/central pay.
