Carlson Wagonlit Travel, the global travel management company, has launched CWT AnswerIQ, a next-generation data insight, reporting and visualisation tool that works like a personalised search engine.
AnswerIQ is CWT’s latest AI-powered business intelligence tool. By using an internet-style search with drill-down capabilities on top of CWT’s data lake, AnswerIQ allows clients to access all the data about their own travel programmes in a simple and intuitive way.
Eric Tyree, chief data scientist at Carlson Wagonlit Travel, said: “CWT AnswerIQ makes corporate travel reporting as easy as shopping for your next pair of shoes on the internet. You type your request in the search box, AnswerIQ goes through all your data, and gives you the answers – visualised for ease of understanding.”
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 personalised over time.
As users run their searches, the data are visualised to tell the story in a way that’s easy for their stakeholders to understand. CWT AnswerIQ provides a variety of visualisation 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.
