SALT LAKE CITY, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Christopherson Business Travel and Travel GPA have announced an agreement that will allow Christopherson to maximize cost savings for its clients through Travel GPA's performance benchmarking analysis. Christopherson will enhance its existing proactive account management program to include improved effectiveness in managing a client's travel policy and overall travel program by pinpointing potential and missed savings opportunities using Travel GPA's policy compliance management and Best Practices/ROI Analysis.
"Travel GPA allows us to increase proactive savings opportunities for our clients rather than just 'after-the-fact' missed savings reports," said Mike Cameron, president of Christopherson. "We are focused on providing the best technology and proactive travel management solutions for our customers and the benchmarking and compliance offered by Travel GPA are great enhancements to our services."
Christopherson is ranked among the top 15 U.S. corporate travel management firms and has developed 11 powerful proprietary travel tools to improve business travel management and the traveler experience. Christopherson is also well known for its use of the latest Internet-based technology solutions.
Travel GPA provides real-time, in-depth policy and benchmarking analysis on corporate travel spend. The data is live and can be scored against internal goals or benchmarked against the Travel GPA database of more than 40,000 companies and totaling more than $4 billion in spend. Travel GPA's Dashboard 360 provides access to fully-customized online reports detailing corporate travel spend and cost savings.
"Corporate business travel professionals need real-time business intelligence so they can make the best use of their budgets and deliver value to their clients," said Rock Blanco, president of Prime Numbers, producer of Travel GPA.
