Business travel innovation faceoff

The second heat for this year's Business Travel Innovation Faceoff sees Data Angel, QuadLabs, and EY go head to head as they present their cutting-edge products, technologies or service to the judging panel and audience.

Data Angel
The Data Angel is friendly “robot” technology that works inside Cvent and alongside meeting planners to correct data and create instant, beautiful reports for them. The Data Angel, the first real time data correction system in the meetings & event space, became a formal Cvent partner and Cvent is now a reseller of this technology.

QuadLabs provides a unified solution for Corporates and TMC to automate the travel purchase and sales process for both offline & online sales in one single solution. Travog Corporate Travel solution is a combination of Self Booking tool + Expense Management + Mobile travel companion app + Point of sales for travel consultants + Mid office + Analytics + Reconciliation solution. It not only provides sales automation across multiple channels but also provide complete automation in post-sales booking management and financial accounting.

Unlike any other SBT tools in the market, Travog also provides a Global Profiling engine which manages the customer profiles & policies centrally to feed into all sales channels & offline processes on real time basis.

The EY Sustainable Travel Approval Tool (STAT) is designed to encourage employees to book more sustainable travel choices and support an organizations’ carbon ambition. It provides our travelers and leaders greater visibility to both the financial and carbon impacts of business travel. It builds off past approval tool successes and gives users tangible emissions information at the time they need it, prior to booking. The tool illustrates relatable emissions facts to traveler understand the impact of the emissions they will incur. The tool also quantifies the benefits of not travelling and using a virtual alternative.

STAT consumes multiple data sources across air, hotel and ground transportation into a central repository ahead of visualizing the carbon impact into a graphical interface when building a proposed trip that really enables travelers to make informed decisions on their proposed trip. A number of API’s, data normalization, visualization and technical calculations, all built within the platform, enable a new way to view carbon impact for a traveler’s journey. Further integrating with our internal approval tool, through power automation and API connectivity shows multi-product integration into an end-to-end process of cost and carbon calculation.

STAT will help reduce the travel carbon footprint by putting control into the employees’ hands.
