Travel Management Companies can help customers harness the power of corporate travel data
New York, NY (June 11, 2018) – When it comes to leveraging the vast amounts of business travel data, insight is meaningless without the ability to adjust traveler behavior, Mike Boult, Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales at Travel Leaders Corporate, told attendees of the inaugural Business Travel Intelligence Summit, sponsored by The BTN Group.
The conference focused on how corporate management can leverage business travel data to control travel costs and create better travel experiences for road warriors.
Boult cautioned against spending “too many calories on perfecting ancient data,” but rather to focus on fast and timely incremental adjustments. Harnessing the power of corporate travel data can help provide quick access to the information companies need, negotiate contracts with suppliers most used by travelers, monitor compliance with travel policies and maximize savings by identifying new travel routes and needs.
At the conference, Boult unveiled Travel Leaders Corporate’s Business Travel Insights (BTI) Version 2 solution. Backed by Travel Leaders Corporate’s data and consulting services, BTI offers a sophisticated yet user friendly way for travel managers to understand their full travel spend by integrating and normalizing HR, travel, payment and expense management information.
BTI gives clients immediate access to track their complete current travel spend but also analyze trends for future savings and efficiencies, he said. Travel and compliance managers can track travel policy compliance, monitor traveler behavior, assign employees a travel compliance “grade,” and use geo-analysis to determine where travel rate negotiation should be focused.
“We believe that Travel Leaders Corporate can simplify the complexities of business travel,” explained Boult. “I was honored to be asked to speak at the Business Travel Intelligence Summit. The BTN Group is one of the most respected publishers of business travel media, and the summit was a wonderful chance for the attendees to hear from experts across the industry.”
