Hogg Robinson Group,the award-winning international corporate services company,unveiled HRG Insight, its new interactive mapping and reporting tool, at the Business Travel and Meeting Show in London. The tool provides vital travel data such as spend, personnel and high-risk areas, on an interactive map.
Designed, managed and implemented in-house by HRG’s dedicated team of experts, HRG Insight will allow users to drill into their data graphically, so they can quickly and easily see exactly where their travellers are, where they are going to and where they have been. Delivered as an online service, optimised for use on tablet and mobile devices, clients can access their global data anytime, giving them the freedom to manage, organise and make informed decisions about their travel management programme
The highly visual interface deployed in HRG Insight is underpinned by a sophisticated database, which allows users to capture pre and post travel data in one place for the first time. This new functionality enables travel managers to budget more efficiently by giving a single view of all forecast and committed travel spend. HRG Insight’s online report library allows each user to set up a range of bespoke reports, such as specific spend in a certain area or on a range of routes, and can choose the date and frequency to suit them; they can also opt to deliver a report to a group of users within their organisation.
HRG Insight’s highly intuitive map analysis presents travel data in a similar way to an airline route map, allowing users to clearly and quickly see where their most popular routes and destinations are. Users can also access at-a-glance information on hotel data, according to location, whilst further customised functionality makes it easy to drill down to the most granular level according to the precise information required. From a security perspective mapping analysis also allows users to see the locations of individual travellers and quickly identify incidents or emerging situations that may place them at risk.
Nigel Meyer, HRG’s Group Technology and Data Services Director, said; “HRG Insight is a flexible and adaptable platform that gives us a sound foundation on which we can continue to innovate and adapt to our clients’ changing needs.
“Data is now being used by decision makers outside the sphere of travel management, including finance, procurement and team leaders. HRG Insight has been designed to deliver data in a way that accessible and easy to use for all disciplines to ensure spend is wisely managed and personnel are always protected. With growing needs for security, compliance and cost control we now have the data and the platform to meet these demands head on.”
