BCD Travel's TripSource Mobile App to Access Travel Itineraries
ATLANTA, GA: Travelers who book trips through BCD Travel now can download a free mobile app to help them stay organized and productive. TripSource, a robust itinerary management app, provides vital travel information with the touch of a finger. Travelers can use TripSource to access and share travel itineraries (airlines, hotels, ground transportation and more). It also provides real-time flight status alerts and gate changes, driving directions to destinations along their journey and even rewards for using the app.
“The mobile device has become one of the most important traveler resources, but few apps address the specific needs of business travelers,” says April Bridgeman, BCD Travel senior vice president of strategic marketing. “TripSource reflects our commitment to providing new services that both improve the travel program and improve the quality of trips with an app we think the traveler will love using.”
TripSource has launched in Canada and the United States and is available in the Apple App Store as a free download for clients of BCD Travel. App versions for other languages (French, German and Spanish) and devices (Android and mobile web) will follow. In addition, an enterprise version of the app is slated for the second quarter 2014. That version will provide travel managers with a real-time communications tool for encouraging travelers to make smart choices during trips.
TripSource Enterprise will let companies customize mobile app content and send travelers relevant messages to influence behavior. TripSource expands the number of touch points with travelers during a trip. Historically, opportunities to influence were limited to booking, itinerary changes and intervention following a trip disruption. Now companies may proactively influence more decisions and keep travelers better informed.
Other features in development for TripSource Enterprise include managed hotel and air bookings and custom rewards programs.
