Travelport has signed up leading UK travel management company Global Travel Management to use its data analytics tool Travelport Business Insights.
Founded in October 1997, Global Travel Management provides customers with an end-to-end travel services, including airline reservations and ticketing, hotel reservations, ground transportation, and visa and passport procurement.
The corporate agency will use Travelport Business Insights to gain insights from multiple data sources to help it optimise supplier contracts, enhance customer service and improve efficiencies.
Business Insights uses data from traditional and non-traditional travel sources, augmenting it with predictive analytics and presenting that on a dashboard.
Travelport says this removed the reliance on manually sourcing, organising and interpreting data, delivering information via any device and in near real-time.
Scott Pawley, managing director of Global Travel Management, said: “Sophisticated data analysis in travel is no longer an option, it has become a necessity.
“Travelport delivers a flexible tool that will enable us to analyse travel data aggregated from multiple sources, and transform it into insights that deliver a competitive edge.”
Paul Broughton, Travelport country manager, UK and Ireland, added: “Our customers often tell us the volume of data available to them is dramatically increasing but so too is the time and cost of interpreting it.
“Travelport Business Insights is specifically designed to help agencies manage this by forensically analysing large pools of data quickly, accurately and cost effectively.
“We are pleased Global Travel Management has recognised the value of the tool and look forward to seeing the impact it has on the company’s performance.”
