BCD travel has unveiled its newest product platform, Solutionsource, to offer clients access to partner technology solutions.
With Solutionsource, BCD says travel buyers gain access to expansive technologies in key categories including risk management, price assurance, flight disruption, programme optimisation and more. Freebird, Rocketrip, Fairfly and Yapta are among the initial partners available on the platform, though BCD says it will continue to add partnerships throughout 2018.
Yannis Karmis, senior vice president of product planning and development at BCD Travel, said: “It’s a tremendous time for innovation in travel. By building an open platform, Solutionsource opens the door to emerging technologies for our clients. Our open ecosystem allows technology providers to integrate with our proprietary platforms to create a seamless travel management experience.”
Leslie Haddon, global travel operations manager at Linkedin, commented: “As the global travel operations manager for the leading business social networking service, I pride myself in my knowledge of travel technology. Keeping up with technology is time consuming. Solutionsource will not only help me identify relevant travel technology, it will also give me confidence that the solutions I choose for Linkedin will easily integrate into my travel programme.”
