Case Study

UC Berkeley

Let's take a look at UC Berkeley's Student Organizations program. It's led by a small team that is responsible for booking and managing travel for student-managed teams.


How Teams Book

Saving hours per week

Before Lucid

Teams search on different sites then schedule a meeting with the university staff to make the reservation. Every payment is different & receipts are different too.

After Lucid

Teams go to the UC Berkeley custom link. From there they search, browse, and click on the "Send for Approval & Payment" button. It goes directly to university staff & they book it in one click.


Managing Receipts

Saving hours per week

Before Lucid

Teams sometimes book directly with hotels and other book on various online travel sites. All receipts were different and it was difficult to keep track of them.

After Lucid

All receipts are stored in your university admin account that is available any time along with 24/7 customer service support. Simply login and live chat with Lucid representatives whenever you need to.
