Running 230V motor on 208 Inverter

I have a question about running a 230/430V 3-phase WEG vector motor on 208V 3phase through a AC Tech SMV vector drive. If my understanding of inverters is correct, the motor will never see even a full 208 volts except at maximum frequency from the inverter. Do I really need to worry about a buck/boost transformer if I can live with the reduced output to the motor at 208V? Should I worry about running the motor at the lower voltage?
