Stay ahead of a shifting market

Programs aren’t static, and your performance management strategy shouldn’t be either

Managing the unpredictable

There are hundreds of reasons that make managing your travel spend difficult – inventory is low, demand is high, costs are up, and the market is in constant flux.

Travel has changed significantly – it’s time for new, innovative strategies to drive more value and avoid the cumbersome process of traditional sourcing and spend management.

Advito can help you prove the value of travel to your stakeholders with fresh data, an ongoing analysis of what’s working and what’s not, and implementation support once a strategy is put in place.

STAY AHEAD OF A CONSTANTLY SHIFTING MARKET

Active, continuous program management requires evaluating spend in real time and matching long-term commitments with corporate objectives. Advito’s Dynamic Performance Management(DPM) focuses on dynamically comparing performance to the market and quickly adapting to changes rather than waiting weeks or months before renegotiating contracts across your air, hotel and rail programs.

With advanced analytics, predictive tools and new slices of transactional data, we strategically take advantage of fluctuations in supply and changing demand patterns.

  • Real-time analytics give you access to data-rich, visual dashboards on-demand, allowing you an in depth look at your program’s performance metrics
  • Monthly program insights will help you monitor market trends in tandem with your program data to better understand next steps
  • Proactive supplier management will help facilitate and grow your vender relationship and leverage your insights when it comes to contract negotiations.

Influence your traveler’s decisions

Managing supplier contract performance is just one half of a successful spend management strategy. Our framework focuses on educating and influencing travelers with industry-leading marketing, communications and behavioral economics tactics.

Leverage the insights gleaned from your program data to create a meaningful Traveler Engagement strategy that will support your goals – from increasing hotel to trip night attachment or shifting supplier share in certain markets to driving down air spend on key routes.

“We had a lot of ideas, but we didn’t have the resources on our own to thoroughly assess our hotel strategy, evaluate and understand MICE patterns and spend or update and automate hotel sourcing…We needed expert knowledge about what was working in other sectors.”
