NEW YORK – Rocketrip, a leading technology platform for reducing corporate travel expenses, announced the launch of a collaboration ecosystem that simplifies travel management by creating a single seamless end to end experience for trip booking, policy compliance, duty of care tracking, expense management and incentivized behavioral change. Leading technology providers participating in the program include travel management companies Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Ovation, and Travel Leaders Corporate, as well as travel software providers Concur, Deem, and Sabre.
Rocketrip’s incentivized behavioral change technology adds unique value to the spend-reduction initiatives major travel management companies offer their customers. Integrations with platforms like Concur and Deem enhance a traveler’s booking and expense management workflows. While development of apps and capabilities with technology companies like Sabre and Travelport automate and improve client specific budget calibration.
Rocketrip helps clients reduce travel costs by predicting what an employee would have spent on a trip and rewarding them for spending less. The platform gives business travelers a personalized “Budget to Beat” for each trip based on actual prices and availability for policy-compliant booking options on flights, hotels, trains and rental cars. Travelers who come in under budget earn a share of the savings they generate, which they can redeem for cash and gift cards from companies like Amazon, Nordstrom and Visa, as well as merchandise, travel benefits, and charitable donations. Additionally, the Rocketrip Insights analytics suite enhances conventional expense reporting by aggregating data from all travel vendors, including airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and even Airbnb.
“Rocketrip’s commitment to driving innovation in corporate travel is very much aligned with Travel Leaders Corporate’s philosophy,” said Gabriel Rizzi, President and Chief Sales Officer at Travel Leaders Corporate. “We are proud to join their partnership program to bring cost savings to our customers in a smart, employee-centric way.”
“The largest and most influential corporate travel players have recognized that incentive-driven travel management is the modern paradigm,” said Dan Ruch, CEO at Rocketrip. “We’ve launched our partnership ecosystem to make it easier for all corporations, from the midmarket to the Fortune 500, to reap the benefits of the Rocketrip platform.”
Rocketrip’s program is designed to be platform agnostic, so client organizations can leverage best-in-class technology, regardless of their size, location, or existing travel solutions.
