Travel is typically a company’s third largest expense after rent and salaries. Fulfilment of Accommodation representing roughly 40 to 50% of this spend, still remains largely fragmented
CSR was born out of a latent desire to change the way companies spend on accommodation by providing them the right platform to manage it. The traditional models that existed did not provide any framework for corporations to capture real time information, analyse data, implement cost saving measures, leverage on volumes and realise savings on every travel dollar spend. As companies grew bigger and bigger, instead of closing in-the gaps were becoming wider and more disintegrated.

CSR’s long-term allegiance to the core values of providing a highly-personalized service, developing innovative and flexible solutions, and demonstrating a positive and consistent ROI, has catapulted it to the forefront of corporate accommodation management in India today.
