BCD Travel improves corporate reporting and business intelligence capabilities with new DecisionSource® platform

UTRECHT, Netherlands, July 28, 2014– BCD Travel today announced it has completed a massive migration of every client from multiple legacy tools to a new proprietary business intelligence platform, DecisionSource®. Developed with the needs of travel, procurement and security teams in mind, the DecisionSource rollout represents a significant and ongoing multimillion dollar investment.

DecisionSource lets customers visualize and interact with their data from the time a trip is booked through its completion and beyond. The platform provides clients a gateway to an entire ecosystem with robust reporting and analytics tools they can use to monitor their travelers, manage risk, promote policy compliance and trends that impact their entire program.

“In building the wholly new DecisionSource ecosystem from the ground up, we’ve completely replaced our legacy reporting tools,” said BCD Travel Senior Vice President Leslie West. “Under the hood of our slick and modern graphical user interface, DecisionSource includes all new hardware, data calculators and augmentation processes.”

The company continues to build dynamic new products and services within the DecisionSource ecosystem to keep up with evolving customer needs. It’s already begun rolling out updates to the new platform and is working on the next iteration of DecisionSource that will drive its future analytics capabilities.

“We’ll continue investing in our capacity to deliver great business intelligence products and services,” said Executive Vice President of Global Technology Russ Howell. “We’re mapping multiple tiers of capabilities that we’ll continue to deliver indefinitely to exceed the expectations of corporate travel managers and their travelers.”
