Welcome to Hologic's New Traveler Experience Program!
We are excited to officially launch this new program designed to enhance the travel experience for Hologic employees while working to achieve greater cost savings. Throughout the year we will be communicating numerous program updates, the availability of new tools and technology as well as best practices as we partner with our employees to achieve these valuable goals. 

As we embark on this journey, we welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please reach out to us at travelsupport@hologic.com.
Enhanced Support
To better serve our employees located on  
the West Coast, we have added Travel Desk telephone coverage from 3pm to 5pm PST Monday through Friday. During these additional two hours, American Express Travel Counselors will be available to arrange travel for our employees. These Travel Counselors  will have access to all Hologic reservations, profiles and policies in order to assist Hologic employees. The telephone number remains the same: 508-263-8450
Hologic is very excited to offer you access to the American Express Integrated TripCase experience, a web and mobile application designed to help improve your travel experience by assisting you with your travel needs. This email is designed to provide you with all of the information necessary to begin accessing this tool today.
TripCase Features and Functionality  
TripCase integrates seamlessly with American Express Global Business Travel so when you make a reservation, critical travel information will be forwarded automatically to your mobile device, including:  
    Itinerary with air, hotel, and car rental
    Real-time flight status alerts notifying you of gate assignments as well as delays and cancellations
    Destination weather
    Maps integration
    One-click access to call American Express Global Business Travel
The next time you book travel through American Express Global Business Travel, your trip will automatically upload into your account. If you have not registered for TripCase prior to booking your new trip, you will receive an email from TripCase with an invitation to sign up. For more information visit the Travel Department site on the My Hologic web page.
Concur Expense  
New Expense Reporting Tool Arrives in May!
Hologic will be replacing iExpense with Concur’s integrated Travel & Expense solution in May 2015 which will provide the following benefits:
  Ability to manage your travel and expenses anytime, anywhere with the increased convenience and flexibility of a mobile application, including receipt capture using your phone’s camera to eliminate scanning, faxing or mailing.
  Ability to combine trip data from Concur Travel, Corporate card data from JP Morgan, and E-receipts from various vendors.
  Include real-time searches of healthcare providers to satisfy Sunshine Act reporting.
On-line Booking
Hologic encourages all US and Canada travelers to book arrangements using the Concur On-line Booking Tool for airline, hotel and car rental. The benefits of our on-line booking tool are 24 hour access and support in addition to a significant reduction in transaction costs.
This tool should be used for:
  substantially all  US and Canada-based air travel
This tool should NOT be used for:
  complex air travel with multiple destinations
  international flights (outside of US and Canada)
  flights scheduled to depart within 3 days
Company-wide, we currently use the On-line Booking Tool for less than 40% of travel booked through American Express Global Business Travel. Best Practice is in excess of 75% of all travel is booked on-line. Our goal is to increase our on-line booking rate to at least 60% by the end of fiscal 2015. Transaction fees are double the cost when booked with the Travel Desk as compared to on-line booking.
