HRG, the award winning global travel management company, has combined its Consulting and Business Intelligence divisions. The result is a global team of consulting and analytic experts able to provide clients with a range of services to optimise their travel programmes.
These include strategic programme evaluation, sourcing, process and policy advisory, and utilising new reporting solutions to help drive compliance and improve traveller buying behaviour.
The new global service will be led by Dan Raine as Global Director of Consulting.
The premise for the newly combined team is simple. Built around a four step process that is designed to help clients optimise their travel programmes, as follows:
– Step 1: Identify savings opportunities and gaps in the programme through scenario modelling and benchmarking against peers and industry
– Step 2: Use the data to Identify and implement changes to the travel programme
– Step 3: Educate and inform travellers on the changes and wider benefits, challenging them and the decision makers to make the right choices
– Step 4: Track the success of programme compliance and savings, utilising HRG Consulting’s suite of reporting tools
Dan Raine comments: “The chance to bring together the data management expertise that the Business Intelligence team possesses with the leading industry knowledge that our Consulting team is renowned for is an exciting opportunity. Users of the global service will benefit from best in class analysis and new reporting solutions together with our market leading advisory and sourcing skills.
“This combined offering together with the four step approach that we have designed will improve the analytical strategy to the creation, implementation and development of a travel programme. Users will reap the benefits of increased compliance, additional savings and fully optimised travel programmes.”
