Product Description: Tripkicks integrates into corporate booking tools to provide travelers with actionable insights for trips, guidance on appropriate spend and behavior, and an enhanced traveler experience. It focuses on improving traveler confidence by empowering the traveler with everything needed to keep them safe and more informed. The result is an optimized booking experience with enhanced communication and guidance for the traveler.
Business Model: Tripkicks sell its add-on solutions directly to corporations, or through its travel management company resellers. Primarily, corporates will pay a small percentage on booked spend to utilize Tripkicks modules.
Competitors: Rocketrip competes on the traveler incentive solution, but no other companies are augmenting the booking process with insights and spend guidance.
Competitive Edge: Our team is deeply entrenched in business travel working alongside the booking tools, TMCs and risk management providers to provide essential info to travelers when booking. Our solutions focus on filling existing gaps for companies and travelers without replacing existing technology.
Market Opportunity: Business travelers today need access to key information when booking their trip so they can make smart decisions. Companies have an obligation to keep their travelers safe. Tripkicks provides the tools to enable business travelers to more easily and confidently book travel again, empowering them with the information they need to stay safe and be better informed. Tripkicks is currently available to companies who use SAP Concur and is working to expand the integration into other booking tools.
Early Customers: Innovative corporations across a wide variety of industries such as e-commerce, real estate, professional services, software and tech.
