Amey, a leading infrastructure company, collaborates with over 15 local authorities, including Birmingham, Sheffield, and Staffordshire.

They also partner with major clients such as Highways England, BAA, United Utilities, Network Rail, and the Ministry of Defence. Internationally, Amey works with the Metropolitan Transport Authority in New York and Australia’s Roads and Maritime Services.

Amey implemented a self-service travel booking model that required approval for all bookings, with air travel bookings specifically requiring authorisation from an Executive Director. This necessitated a system that accommodated multiple approvers to ensure continuity even in the absence of the primary approver. Certain projects allowed travel administrators to book travel without prior authorisation, provided they were booking on behalf of others.

At Clarity, our booking platform ClarityGo is an indispensable tool designed with the traveller in mind. It offers a seamless, intuitive, one-stop solution for all booking needs. The interface includes advanced features such as a stored list of authorised approvers, the ability to select an authoriser from a drop-down menu, automated authorisation request handoffs, and fields to specify the reasons for booking travel.

“Clarity are a progressive organisation who have accommodated and adapted to the majority of our business needs.”
