APRIL 23—The International Trade Commission this week will move a step closer to running a paperless operation with the use of a new travel management system.

Under a five-year contract, worth up to $150,000, Zegato Solutions Inc. of Lanham, Md., will implement an application that will let commission employees book all travel arrangements using Web browsers on either their desktop or notebook computers. Users will also be able to pay credit card bills daily using the system.

'All of our employees will have access to this online booking tool, and they will have access anytime, anywhere,' said Queenie Cox, travel and transportation management officer for the commission.

The new system, which will come online Wednesday, replaces one from Aldmyr Systems in Lanham, Md., from which Zegato in January spun off as a separate company. Many agencies use the Aldmyr system, including the Transportation and Veterans Affairs departments. The commission is the first agency implementing the Zegato system, company officials said.
