MTT launches business traveller mobile app with global travel company BCD Travel

Mobile Travel Technologies Ltd. (MTT), the pioneering mobile solutions provider for the travel industry, has developed a new personalized mobile travel app for global travel management company BCD Travel. Called TripSource, the mobile app may be downloaded from the Apple App Store in versions for U.S. and Canadian markets. Versions for other countries, Android and mobile web are in the works. 

A full-service travel management company operating in 97 countries, BCD Travel helps companies of all sizes to get more from their travel dollars while keeping travellers safe and productive. BCD Travel services companies across a wide array of industries, including many of those ranking among the 100 largest companies globally by total annual air volume.

These companies have extensive travel needs with many staff travelling at one time. With TripSource, their business travellers can easily access and track every trip while on the go and have a better business travel experience with personalized guides, directions, reminders and travel updates. Leveraging MTT’s corporate travel product, MTT Concierge, TripSource will give BCD Travel more control in managing its mobile channel and will enhance its communication with its travellers. BCD Travel will also use MTT Engage (MTT’s intelligent push engine) to send targeted push notifications.

“We chose MTT to build our mobile travel app because they impressed us with their successful track record in creating smart, intuitive, useful applications for consumers. We wanted to create a great app with personality that delivers a consumer-oriented user experience to business travellers, and the first release of TripSource reveals MTT’s intuition for what users want,” said April Bridgeman, Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing at BCD Travel.

Travelers who book trips through BCD Travel now may download the free TripSource  mobile app to help them stay organized and productive. The 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. 

Gerry Samuels, CEO of MTT said “We are delighted to announce that MTT has been working with BCD Travel to launch its new app leveraging our MTT Concierge and MTT Engage products. MTT will deliver an innovative mobile roadmap to BCD Travel to ensure on-going advancement as it expands its mobile services and mobile channels for its millions of business travellers across the globe. The MTT team is honoured to work with one of the largest travel management companies in the world, and we are very much looking forward to launching the first phases of the new BCD Travel mobile channel and to bringing the human touch to corporate travel.”

MTT Concierge is GDS agnostic and provides Travel Management Companies with the opportunity to differentiate in their marketplace with a slick mobile offering with more personalization, flexibility and customisation opportunities.
