SALT LAKE CITY—Aug. 13, 2018—Christopherson Business Travel, the leading business travel management company in the western United States, in connection with Domo, the world’s leading data visualization platform, is pushing technology to the next level for customers.
“Because data visualization is key to making smart business decisions today, we have developed a new collection of advanced travel analytics that show customers essential travel information in real time,” said Mike Cameron, CEO of Christopherson Business Travel.
Christopherson, which has built a robust technology team dedicated to designing tools and software for business travel managers and their travelers, has integrated Domo’s powerful data cards into the company’s travel manager dashboard AirPortal 360, providing an instant view of travel patterns and essential analytics.
“With Domo cards now embedded in AirPortal 360, our travel managers can bring all their unique travel data together in real-time, which provides powerful insight,” said Cameron. “From there, they can align the metrics that are relevant to them and bridge the gap between data and people.
“Being able to visualize the story their data tells allows them to take informed action that ultimately helps them run a more cost-effective travel program.”
With customer expectations at an all-time high, Christopherson was the first travel management company to integrate with Domo and leverage their robust data technology for the benefit of enhanced customer insights.
“We see this as an imperative move,” Cameron said. “In today’s world, you have to bring technology to the front and provide meaningful tools to move business forward. Without it, travel managers will fall behind.
“The versatility of AirPortal 360, combined with Domo’s expertise, delivers deeper customer insights.”
Currently, Christopherson has 16 unique data cards built and integrated into AirPortal 360, which travel managers can access to make more informed, data-backed decisions for their travel programs.
“For example, by drilling into our ‘Hotels by State’ and ‘Top 10 Hotel Chains’ data cards, a travel manager can analyze the patterns that would allow him or her to negotiate better vendor contracts,” said Cameron.
“By drilling into the ‘Online vs Full-Service’ and ‘Top 25 Travelers’ cards, a travel manager can gain insight into their travelers’ habits and align travel policies that help those travelers make decisions that could ultimately save the company money.
“Having this kind of real-time insight is beyond what travel management data provided in the past and will greatly benefit every company.”
