TripActions Named a Leader in IDC MarketScape on Corporate Travel Booking Apps
IDC MarketScape recommends TripActions to enterprises looking to save money without sacrificing traveller experience
We’re honoured to share the news that TripActions was named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Corporate Travel Booking Applications 2019 Vendor Assessment (doc #US45655219e, December 2019). TripActions was positioned as a leader for its strength in user experience and personalisation, both of which create an experience that users love. That translates into high adoption which delivers the spend visibility, control, data and insights enterprise finance, operations, and travel programme leaders need to optimise their travel programmes, drive cost savings, and fulfill their duty of care.
“TripActions is innovating at a pace that requires it to be agile and iterate on existing processes as it goes,” the report states. “While this is a challenge, TripActions has taken this challenge and used it to help reshape its operations over the past 12 months, building a highly scalable global infrastructure.”
The IDC MarketScape Report emphasises that a successfully managed corporate travel programme requires a strong grasp of data management to scale otherwise manual processes. Artificial intelligence, big data, and APIs are changing the business travel landscape for the better, offering superior visibility and efficiency that is otherwise unattainable.
The use of modern, proprietary technology is at the heart of the TripActions platform, empowering users to book trips on average in six minutes or less as compared to 60 minutes or more with many other platforms. This leads to customers achieving an unprecedented 90 %+ adoption, 93 % traveller satisfaction, and savings of up to 34 % on lodging alone.
Corporate travel management solutions carry a heavy load for an organisation; from enforcing corporate travel policy to offering the best possible inventory at the best possible prices, it’s clear why technology is so central to scaling and automating processes at the admin and traveller levels.
The IDC MarketScape advises travel technology buyers to keep agility, scalability, and efficiency in mind when it comes to choosing a travel booking tool. The report says to consider TripActions when you are looking to save money without sacrificing traveller experience. The IDC MarketScape recognised TripActions for our strong user experience, focus on travellers and traveller support, and the personalisation travellers get when booking with TripActions.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised for our unwavering focus on our users — all of them, all the time,” noted Meagen Eisenberg, CMO at TripActions. “Our passion for our users is one of our core values and central to our mission-driven culture of delivering the best experience in business travel.”
