American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) announced the launch of PREMIER INSIGHTS this week. 

The new data visualization tool is designed to provide companies with a more complete view of their travel program, with the result being better efficiency and cost savings. 

Because PREMIER INSIGHTS combines American Express Corporate Cards and travel booking data into one platform, travel managers are able to access their entire travel program in one place.

By simplifying the process of consolidating and analyzing travel data, the platform provides travel managers with more opportunities to identify negative habits, correct them and ultimately save. The tool offers up metrics that highlight and prioritize those potential opportunities. From there travel managers can experiment with changes before deciding what action to take.

"Intelligent travel program management is only possible when companies and their travel managers understand how their employees consume travel and the financial impact of their usage," said GBT's Chief Global Sales Officer Christine Ourmieres-Widener in a statement.

"We created PREMIER INSIGHTS to centralize everything that can impact the efficiency of a travel program, allowing travel managers to spend less time pulling data and more time enhancing their travelers' experiences."

"As a result, they can engage in smarter decision-making, drive program efficiencies and achieve cost savings," Ourmieres-Widener concluded.

In his own statement, GBT's Vice President, Core Products and Platform Architecture Christophe Tcheng said the "platform was developed as a departure from the manual ways travel managers used to access and pull data."

GBT said PREMIER INSIGHTS is currently available in more than 20 countries across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific and will begin to integrate additional corporate cards and booking data later this year.
