Christopherson Business Travel and Domo Harness the Power of Business Data to Transform the Travel Management Industry
Announced at the 2017 GBTA Convention, Companies Introduce First-of-a-kind Cloud Apps for Travel Managers
BOSTON and SILICON SLOPES, UT – July 17, 2017 – Domo and Christopherson Business Travel, today announced three new travel management solutions built to deliver groundbreaking analytics and insights on an organization’s travel budgets and spend. With the dynamic pace of change in the travel management industry, travel managers are inundated with data and information that tell different stories about the state of their travel budgets and spend. Domo and Christopherson teamed up to develop industry-first mobile solutions that leverage Christopherson’s industry expertise and Domo’s ground-breaking technology platform to help travel managers quickly gain powerful insights to improve compliance, negotiate better rates, and improve the traveler experience.
“The travel industry is becoming more complex and is ripe for disruption. While massive amounts of travel data exists, many organizations find it difficult to harness deep insights and quickly take action with this data. By bringing new solutions to market with Christopherson, we are making it easier for travel managers to rapidly respond to the needs of the business and to be more impactful leaders in this time of dramatic change,” said Jay Heglar, chief strategy officer at Domo.
“As a long-standing leader in the business travel industry, we view ourselves as a high-tech travel management firm. As such, we offer industry-first technology that helps our customers solve their travel issues. Our partnership with Domo allows us to provide customers with new solutions that enable them to interact with and gain insights from their data in an easy, effortless manner,” said Mike Cameron, CEO at Christopherson Business Travel.
The new travel management solutions from Christopherson and Domo includes:
- Travel Leakage Analyzer: This app allows travel managers to control and visualize “out of program” spend. Taking feeds from Christopherson’s AirPortal® and financial systems such as Concur, NetSuite, and QuickBooks, the Travel Leakage App visualizes where travel spend is in compliance, and more importantly, where it is not. Understanding where travel spend is out of policy can help travel managers change the negative trend and move towards improving compliance.
- Hotel Spend Analyzer: This app instantly finds hotel spend or total nights in any area to help travel managers better negotiate contracts with vendors and improve the traveler experience. Domo takes multiple data feeds and matches them together to deliver insights such as tracking Total Room Nights, Average Daily Rate, and Total Spend in any custom region. Travel managers can instantly view all travel trends and spending across the globe by vendor, and are enabled with the information they need to negotiate better rates.
- Travel Analytics: This dashboard is a set of best-practice visualizations offered through Christopherson that help travel managers easily and intuitively connect multiple real-time travel data feeds into the Domo platform. These rapid deployment cards will make it fast and simple to put the relevant insights into the hands of travel executives and managers.
Domo transforms the way business is managed by changing the relationship people–from the CEO to the frontline worker–have with data. Enterprise customers like Christopherson Business Travel chose Domo’s cloud-based platform because it puts data directly into the hands of people across the organization, offering top-rated ease of use, delivering powerful visualizations, and enabling more effective decisions that help provide better returns and keep their organizations competitive.
