SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Concierge Travel Metrics, Inc. (“CTMI”), the new next-generation business travel research firm, announced today a corporate trip planning application that focuses on deep location safety analysis of algorithmic-rated destination facilities and activities. The metric data is presented as a dashboard report that enables easy, rapid comparison of the relative safety of each city district, and the value-rated hotels, restaurants and local activities within each district.
CTMI also announced the release of the initial destination, San Francisco, in their BUSINESS CONCIERGE travel-planning application designed specifically for business travelers. A free preview of the San Francisco dashboard reports and website is available through June 30 at www.conciergetm.com, and includes an offer to join Club Critique, CTMI’s new quality review program for business executive feedback on their destination experiences. New destinations starting with Los Angeles and San Diego will be added on a monthly schedule, and will include the 30 most active U.S. business destinations.
“We know that business travelers, particularly women who now make up 49% of all corporate travel, want to stay in a specific city location that is convenient to high-quality, accurately rated hotels, restaurants and shopping, but their primary concern is always safety,” said William Benjamin, CEO of CTMI. “We use a combination of police reported criminal activity, plus our new algorithmic CONSENSUS value-rating program to establish and report these location safety metrics and follow-on accommodation recommendations.”
Click on these two examples of the location tabular reports, District Location Table and Location Safety Table, which are directly downloadable as PDF documents. These are also available from the “NEWS” menu at www.travel-metrics.com. More than 60 metric analysis reports are generated for each destination.
