Ovation utilizes this high-level analysis to identify trends and to benchmark individual client activity against carefully selected benchmark groups, representing over $1.4 billion in annual air and hotel spend. The data serves as a resource in determining opportunities for strengthening clients’ travel programs in such areas as travel policy adjustment, service enhancements and supplier negotiations.
“We benchmark these industries individually as they consistently demonstrate their unique travel habits,” noted Executive Vice President, Michael Steiner, about the quarterly Indexes. “For example, a larger percentage of tech industry travel is international compared to the other Index industry groups, but they also spend less, on average, on those international air fares and hotel rates. Compare that to law firm travelers, where a smaller percentage of the travel is international compared to the other Index industry groups, but they also spend more, on average, on their international air fares and hotel rates. This all goes to illustrate the importance for organizations who are looking to benchmark their travel policies and spend to make sure they are comparing themselves to like-organizations of similar industry, travel culture and program scope.”
