Carlson Wagonlit Travel, the global travel management company, has launched CWT AnswerIQ, a next-generation data insight, reporting and visualization tool that works like a personalized search engine that knows everything about the client’s travel program.
“CWT AnswerIQ makes corporate travel reporting as easy as shopping for your next pair of shoes on the internet,” said Eric Tyree, Chief Data Scientist, Carlson Wagonlit Travel. “You type your request in the search box, AnswerIQ goes through all your data, and gives you the answers – visualized for ease of understanding.”
CWT AnswerIQ is CWT’s latest AI-powered business intelligence tool. By putting internet-style search with drill-down capabilities on top of CWT’s data lake, CWT AnswerIQ allows clients to access all the data about their own travel programs in a simple and intuitive way.
The tool provides visibility over three years’ worth of data, updated multiple times every day, ensuring clients get up-to-date information. Using AI-assisted search technology and machine learning, it adapts and improves its search capabilities, getting smarter and more personalized over time.
As users run their searches, the data are visualized to tell the story in a way that’s easy for their stakeholders to understand. CWT AnswerIQ provides a variety of visualization options to choose from. Users can also design, create and share dashboards with their colleagues, improving program effectiveness and saving clients time and money. CWT AnswerIQ is available on a 60-day free trial now.
