Global distribution system data provides a duplicate of data
on travel booked through the travel management company.
Pros & Cons: Large companies with operations
around the world may find that multiple GDSs are necessary and therefore will
want the data from disparate data sources.
Access/Formats: Available in standard reports and raw data
directly from the GDSs. The data isn’t always as complete as TMC data and is
not configured with details like employee or department codes.
