For Travel Programs, data exists everywhere, in different formats and systems. Unfortunately, up to 40% of that data falls outside the traditional booking channels, making it invisible to travel managers. This has become a massive problem for end-to-end travel management and proper duty of care.
If you aren’t making the most out of your data, you're leaving money on the table and putting employees at risk. Join Grasp Technologies Vice President Dave Lukas, Traxo CSO Brian Butler, and Areka Consulting Managing Partner Louise Miller as they discuss how Grasp and Traxo work together to provide complete data and solve the toughest problems plaguing travel managers today.
The Grasp Technologies and Traxo Partnership Enable:
Complete, automated travel data aggregation from all booking sources
Enhanced data visualizations for a 360-degree view of the corporate travel program
Deeper, more informative analysis of the corporate travel program and business travel patterns
