BCD Travel’s Tripsource app and website will integrate with Concur Travel to provide access to an extended choice of hotels to Concur clients.
BCD says the integration will provide business travellers with access to more than 1 million unique property options and more than 15 million rate choices around the world. The company comments that ensuring the availability of rates and desirable rooms is critical to earning the confidence of travellers.
According to BCD, the partnership with Concur will also help clients get consistent content across booking channels. Its hotel programme combines content from GDSs with that of hotel booking aggregators and private hotel channels. Using Tripsource, BCD says travellers can book client-negotiated rates and offers from both chains and private hotels.
The integration with Concur will launch with a pilot group of users. BCD’s hotel booking engine will integrate with Concur Travel by utilising a proprietary Concur Hotel API, while BCD’s reporting and analytics platform will capture traveller data to give managers access to trip information.
