Advito launches Intelligence & Analytics consulting practice with data and analytics tools powered by business technology leader Domo


CHICAGO, April 10, 2018 – Corporate travel consultancy Advito announces the launch of a new Intelligence & Analytics consulting practice with a full range of offerings including data integration, data management, analytics and visualizations. Domo’s cloud-based operating system for business will provide the data and analytics solutions that support many of these offerings. The new practice area evolved from a desire to help clients make strategic use of fragmented data from multiple sources, including third parties, to provide powerful insights that deliver value across a corporation for quick decision-making.

“Our methodologies push beyond the traditional, transforming data into stories that speak to executive leadership, align with overall corporate initiatives and drive new value into travel programs,” says Lexi Honohan, senior director of Intelligence & Analytics for Advito, who joined the firm ten months ago, in part, to build the new consulting specialty. “Unlike other business travel consulting firms and third-party data aggregators, we offer a holistic and economical solution that takes organizations from concept to actualization in record time.”

Advito’s consultants will work with clients from strategy to visualization, transforming travel data into rich, meaningful analytics that support corporate goals, such as:

  • Changing supplier conversations through the addition of third-party data sources and disruptive logic;
  • Making direct and indirect connections from travel to other areas of the organization to identify savings opportunities;
  • Translating travel data into universal messages that resonate with non-travel leadership in an organization; and
  • Reducing operational and regulatory risk.

Engagements include workshops to build data strategies, as well as data integration consulting services to bring recommendations to life, including outsourced project management for a third-party data aggregation RFP or implementation. In addition, Advito will provide analytics and data insights from the Domo Appstore and Domo-certified engagements. The firm will also offer customized solutions for multi-source data aggregation, benchmarking and more.

After a robust vetting process that reviewed tools from eight companies, Advito selected Domo for its exceptional ability to support and prepare data integration and offer an affordable solution with a short deployment window.

Advito’s solution provides multi-source, full-spectrum analytics that go beyond what traditional agencies and payment and expense systems provide. “With Domo, the addition of our unique set of third-party data sources, combined with our consultants’ expertise, we are positioned to disrupt supplier conversations in the industry,” explains Honohan.

“Advito’s travel industry expertise combined with the power of Domo’s platform brings a differentiated approach to clients looking to change the way they manage their corporate travel programs,” said Jon Shoff, vice president, agency partnerships, Domo. “We’re excited by Advito’s use of Domo in helping its clients leverage data to improve efficiency and outcomes for corporate travelers and travel programs.”
