Solon, OH, July 31, 2013 — Scott Gillespie, a leading expert in the corporate travel industry, and Diio, the aviation intelligence firm, have partnered in launching tClara, LLC.

tClara provides on-demand analytics for corporate travel/procurement managers and their consultants.

"Our goal is to provide fast, fact-based analysis to corporate travel and procurement managers," says Gillespie, "in these three important areas:

  • Airline category analytics and savings opportunities
  • Travel policy decision support
  • Trip friction scoring and benchmarking."

tClara is not your traditional corporate travel data reporting tool. "Instead, customers pick the issue they want analyzed," Gillespie explains. "Then they give us a simple export from their own travel data reporting tool. We quickly come back with a fully customized analysis, delivered by an experienced consultant in a live one-hour review. tClara ensures that customers get the business insights they need."

tClara reports include:

  • Corporate airline ticket profit margin analysis and savings opportunities
  • Impact on airfares and negotiating power from the impending AA-US merger
  • Trip friction, aka "traveler wear and tear", scoring, analysis and consultation
  • Cabin, connection and days advance purchase analyses and savings opportunities
  • Custom analytical services and consulting support

tClara (tee-CLAIR-ah, a riff on "clarity") offers a free analysis of a customer's city pairs. For more information about tClara and this free report, visit www.tclara.com or e-mail info@tclara.com.
