MasterCard and TRX to Develop Proprietary Travel Dashboard
MasterCard Worldwide and TRX have agreed to develop the MasterCard Travel Dashboard, a web-based business intelligence tool that will be designed to enable companies to evaluate, analyse and optimise travel programmes. The proprietary tool will leverage detailed information from MasterCard’s corporate card programme and TRX’s travel data reporting tools to provide visibility into the performance and compliance of travel programmes. It is hoped that the Travel Dashboard will allow employees to make more informed decisions by enabling them to thoroughly evaluate and analyse their travel programme. Travel managers will be able to review performance and trends; drill-down on reports to analyse major travel spend categories, including spend-to-vendor agreement reporting; compare spend data with corporate policy to highlight out-of-compliance departments and travellers; benchmark the performance of their programmes.
