BCD Travel has built a reputation on innovation, flexibility and service. Emerging technologies offer significant value to corporate travelers, right in the palm of their hands, through mobile devices—especially smart phones. Mobile apps can give superior service value to travelers because of their innovation, speed to market, and simplicity.
BCD Travel believes strongly that adherence to Corporate Travel Programs will erode significantly over time unless they can harness that innovation, and they can harness that value. It is essential that we offer our client mobile services that serve their program goals and delight their travelers. Therefore, we are developing a mobile application experience that provides significant value to the corporate traveler – one that is unique, yet on par with value that travelers can get in the consumer marketplace. This will drive acceptance of the mobile travel application, and corresponding value to the travel program at the same time.
