Buying in bulk is financially efficient, much like assigning roles to Employee Groups is time efficient. Money saving, time saving - what a wonderful world to live in, among your wall of 50 pack toilet rolls and 30 gallon drums of raspberry cordial.

Assign Via Groups means to use Employee Groups to bulk assign/update roles ie. Travel Arranger, Authoriser or Risk Authoriser to a specific Employee Group. As a Company Administrator, you have the ability to assign different profile levels to a an Employee Group.

In the Locomote Corporate Travel Platform you can do continue to manage the company data and profiles of your travellers and higher-level roles like Travel Arrangers and Authorisers, ensuring you spend less time going from profile-to-profile and more time finding storage space for all of your slabs of meat.

Performing bulk assignments is an irreversible process. Please ensure that you confirm the assignments you are making before proceeding.
