When a travel platform is implemented, the selection of one (1) of nineteen (19) Industry Classifications is required. The Industry Classification Standard used by the travel platform is similar to that set by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Index though most closely aligns with the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). The categorisation allows a rich dataset (including anonymised) to be formed globally of Profiles, Trips and more.
The following is the travel platform’s Industry Classification Standard:

A company’s “Industry” classification believed to be incorrect, please liaise with your company’s travel administrator/manager or the travel agency (e.g. TMC) that manages your company’s bookings.
Public or Private Sector?
⚠ Government, NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) and Religious Organisations producing “private sector like” goods and services should be classified in the same industry as private sector units engaged in similar activities or service delivery.
⚠ A private sector engaged in “public sector like”, such as public administration or military defence, should be classified as Public Administration (Government) and Safety.
Companies engaged in a combination of public and private sector activities and service delivery should be classified according to the predominant activity or service.
However, companies engaged in a combination of public and private sector activities and service delivery, where a predominant activity cannot be determined should be classified as Public Administration and Safety.
Private sector companies engaged in two (2) or more industries (e.g. Manufacturing and Retail Trade), should be classified by the predominant activity (some exclusions or exceptions may apply).
