kulula.com offers low-cost benefits for entrepreneurs
There’s an old saw that there are only two ways to grow an enterprise: to lower your running-costs and to increase your profits. In a tight economic climate, growing a business can seem difficult. But Luane Lavery, Brand Communication Manager at kulula.com says that’s precisely when efficiency and resourcefulness are key.
“kulula.com was built on a culture of entrepreneurship and we know how important entrepreneurs are to economic growth. So we want to be sure that there are as few obstacles as possible to building business, especially as most new jobs in coming years will be at small businesses.
“Face-to-face meetings have been shown to be better for business than email conversations or teleconference. Innovations like video conferencing have a role, but face-time still beats other means of contact for business.”
Lavery explains that kulula work has been set up: a travel service to ensure that businesspeople can travel to close deals, meet business partners or network without undue cost.
For example, businesspeople traveling with kulula work are guaranteed the best fees of the day on kukula.com, don’t pay booking fees and don’t pay for flight changes, only for the difference in fare and the taxes. They also get competitive car-hire rates with Europcar and accommodation with the City Lodge Hotel Group.
“Because running a competitive and efficient business is about watching your costs, kulula work offers support on invoicing and monthly reporting, as well as account management and access to kulula.com’s Corporate Reservations team. They’re also after-hours if needed.
“It’s is a team of professionals – with an agent dedicated to your account – who’ll assess your business travel needs and set up a corporate travel deal to meet your needs.”
And, adds Lavery, because entrepreneurs need work-life balance to keep succeeding, kulula work offers extra 20kg free musical instruments and sporting equipment travel.
