With this new agreement, Travelport will continue to collaborate through Travelport Digital on BCD Travel’s digital traveler engagement solution TripSource, making it the preferred way to manage all aspects of business travel. TripSource allows travelers to shop and book air, hotel and car, and to evolve the next generation of self-service corporate travel experience.
Travelport has been a key technology partner of BCD Travel since 2013 and has collaborated to develop the award-winning TripSource platform.
This collaboration has allowed BCD to vastly expand upon TripSource’s early iteration as an itinerary management app and now offer a cutting-edge user experience that drives the best purchasing decisions, allows users to book and manage travel and helps travelers to stay organized.
“As a key partner for the TripSource platform since its early stages, we’re thrilled to continue to support its future growth with our technology solutions,” said Julie O’Sullivan, Head of Digital, Business Travel at Travelport Digital.
According to the Travelport 2018 Global Digital Traveler Survey of 16,000 travelers from 25 countries, mobile remains crucial, and travelers want a consolidated experience. They also want technology to continue to simplify and enhance the travel experience. TripSource uses real-time messaging capabilities to provide travel updates such as flight delays, gate changes, risk alerts and policy reminders as well as company specific information that helps travelers have a seamless, well-informed experience.
TripSource has been downloaded almost 1.5 million times and has an average app store rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.
“Our longstanding alliance offers us immense value as we strive to lead the corporate travel industry in innovation that translates into tangible value for businesses and a superior experience for their travelers,” he added.
