Think of BCD Travel’s third-party technology integration platform, SolutionSource®, as an “app store” for business travel technologies, suggests Yannis Karmis, Product Planning & Development leader for the travel management company. In a video interview with industry news outlet tnooz, Karmis explains how SolutionSource helps corporate travel buyers speed up innovation with confidence because BCD vets solutions for compatibility, scalability and security before they make it to the marketplace.
BCD has brought on 12 SolutionSource partners since it launched the platform in February. Among the latest additions:
- Pana, now available in the U.S. and extending globally in 2019, is a virtual travel assistant exclusively for guests—recruits, contractors, consultants, interns and more.
- SpotHero, available in the U.S., saves business travelers time finding and expensing parking, while it also saves money for corporate programs.
- International SOS, available in more than 100 countries, helps companies protect travelers from health and security threats around the globe.
