Jenna Becker, Katie Trauger, Lindsey Thompson and Kristin Kelly are your assigned corporate and online support agents. However, our corporate agent team is cross-trained on Westwood Professional Services policies and can assist.

 

Agent-Assisted Services

When traveling internationally, on a complex domestic trip, or at last minute with expensive airfare, it is recommended to contact the agent team to make your reservations. Blue Ribbon’s agent team utilizes resources that are not published or available through online booking systems that often equate to significant dollar savings.

 

Online/Self-Service

As you book travel via Deem, your search results are guided by Westwood Professional Services designated policies and your trip selections will sync to Blue Ribbon’s reservation system.   IMPORTANT:  If you experience troubles finding options or notice pricing discrepancies, please contact Blue Ribbon at the time of discovery.  Blue Ribbon’s online support team will troubleshoot and ultimately secure the lowest available price on your behalf.

 

Deem

Westwood Professional Services employees can book air travel, reserve rental cars and make hotel and rail reservations – all from your desktop browser or smartphone.  Deem integrates with Blue Ribbon Travel’s reservation and profile system creating a seamless business travel booking platform.
