Cost saving opportunities in air travel services
Adoption of various cost optimization levers allows buyers of air travel services to not only realize direct cost savings but also enhance category management and value benefits (such as reduction in procurement complexities).
Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the air travel services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:
- Adoption of technology
- Supplier Competition
- Adoption of negotiation strategies
- Optimization of procurement practices
- Bundling of services
Adoption of technology saving aspects
New types of seating, including economy smart seats with fixed headrests for sleeping and 6-inch adjustable reclining capabilities for spine support, were introduced to enhance ergonomics and differentiate services effectively.
Big Data allows managers to make data-driven decisions and respond appropriately to the fast-changing dynamics in the air travel sector. Smart, analytical tools help marketing and finance departments to sort data rapidly before converting them into actionable insights.
Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects
The performance of suppliers can be linked to a portion of their fee and can be paid upon rendering of services in a satisfactory manner. It is important for category managers to track and measure the performance of suppliers against a set of defined KPIs (that are agreed upon by both parties during the contract negotiation phase).
Before the commencement of contract-related discussions with suppliers, category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers.
Bundling of services saving aspects
Bundling of services allows buyers to mitigate the risks involved in managing multiple aspects of travel management such as booking of hotels, and local transit and destination management. This offers buyers visibility on spend and allows them to negotiate costs better.
