GetThere Delivers Unique Insight into ‘Best in Class’ Corporate Travel Programs with New Benchmarking Services
SOUTHLAKE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GetThere, a global technology company serving corporations, has begun offering benchmarking services to its corporate customers, allowing corporations to compare their travel program to industry averages and ‘best in class’ metrics.
GetThere’s benchmarking services are based on the actual aggregated travel data of hundreds of corporations encompassing travel from all GDSs and across both large and medium sized corporate travel management companies (TMC). With more than $9 billion in travel processes through GetThere annually, the company is uniquely positioned to provide corporations with benchmarking services.
“Our benchmarking approach is unique because it gives companies a “best in class” goal to reach, as well as offering an interactive means to drill into the details across all business segments. It also spans multiple GDS sources and multiple TMCs. This gives corporations a more relevant picture of how their travel program compares to others,” said Deborah Mahoney, director of Specialty Services for GetThere. “Corporations can easily compare their travel program against the aggregate by like size or industry based on actual booked data, not survey data.”
Corporations will have access to a series of reports and metrics via an interactive dashboard with views by geography including global, regional and city views, by industry segment and company size. The interactive dashboards and reports, which were previewed at the recent global GetThere Summit in Chicago, will include the following metrics:
- Adoption for Air, Car, Hotel
- Traveler Compliance
- Vendor Compliance
- Advance Purchase Benchmarking
Future phases will include reports on mobile trends and behavioral indices.
With GetThere’s benchmarking reports, customers will be able to use accurate and real-time travel data to guide travel policy decisions and strategies as well as negotiate more favorable supplier contracts. The benchmarking reports will be customizable to address the particular goals of a corporation’s travel program.
