BCD Travel announced an agreement with the SAP Concur organisation to expand integration between its proprietary hotel platform and the Custom Hotel Sourcing functionality, providing customers access to even more advanced content, booking and payment options.
Under this agreement, BCD customers gain the ability to source more hotel properties, shop across a greater mix of competitive hotel rates, and leverage the intelligence of its hotel platform—all while managing their company policy and program goals.
“Our customers can now better leverage BCD’s robust lodging content offering, artificial intelligence-powered policy and preference engine, rate-filtering capabilities and payment options within SAP Concur solutions, helping to ensure consistency across every booking touchpoint – including BCD agents, the TripSource platform and the Concur Travel booking tool,” said Teri Miller, executive vice president of global client team at BCD Travel. Additionally, the integration paves the way for BCD to deploy new capabilities that empower customers to influence traveller buying behaviour.
“Better integration of BCD Travel platforms with SAP Concur technology enables Stay, our comprehensive lodging solution, to bring even more creative solutions to a company’s lodging programme that drive savings beyond sourcing, increase adoption and influence travellers,” Miller said.
This agreement builds on a historically strong SAP Concur partnership. BCD last year became one of the first global travel management companies to be recognized as a TMC Elite partner for SAP Concur solutions.
