UNM Travel is The University of New Mexico’s travel management program providing UNM business travelers convenience, safety, value and a multitude of booking options both domestically and internationally. In partnership with Rio Grande Travel, the comprehensive travel booking tool ETTA, powered by DEEM, is overseen by the Purchasing Department and automatically applies UNM negotiated prices and agreements with airlines, hotels and car rental companies.
ETTA will feed trip information from expenses booked in ETTA, into the traveler's eWallet. All PCard Reconciliations and Reimbursement requests must be submitted in Chrome River.
- Travel details from ETTA to Chrome River will go to the traveler’s eWallet,
- PCard transactions from BoA will continue to feed to the PCard holders eWallet.
In addition, ETTA includes a critical Duty of Care safety component for UNM business travelers. Tripcase and Sabre SafePoint are embedded in the ETTA tool to keep travelers updated and aware of any critical safety issues that may arise while on travel. TripCase is a valuable source for updates including flight delays, gate changes and many other travel updates. Sabre SafePoint is a powerful travel risk management solution that monitors global health and security events, including natural disasters and can determine which UNM travelers may be impacted. Sabre SafePoint can even proactively reach out to travelers and request a “check-in” to confirm their safety or need for assistance while automatically monitoring all of The University of New Mexico’s business trips and providing our community of travelers with easy access to their emergency assistance hotline.
