ALTOUR Partners Exclusively with Rocketrip for Incentivized Behavioral Change
Leaders in business travel create a powerful solution for end-to-end travel services and apply Incentivized Behavior Change for smarter cost management
NEW YORK—September 26, 2017—Rocketrip, the leading technology platform for reducing corporate travel costs, together with ALTOUR, one of the largest travel management companies in the US, today announced a joint partnership. This partnership combines ALTOUR’s global expertise in travel services with Rocketrip’s Incentivized Behavioral Change solution to enhance spend-reduction programs that will lead to massive savings on their clients’ bottom lines.
ALTOUR clients will now be able to leverage Rocketrip’s technology for dynamic budgeting and tap into a volume of travel options that will unlock greater cost savings than they could have realized through conventional travel procurement and expense management practices alone.
“We’re actively working to better the future of business travel for companies and their employees, and we’re making huge inroads,” Dan Ruch, founder and CEO of Rocketrip said. “Rocketrip and ALTOUR are chasing the same vision, and this partnership is a major benchmark in reaching a new world of business travel that’s more human-centric and seamlessly delivers more value overall.”
ALTOUR has a global network of more than 1,500 travel experts worldwide that provide white-glove service and critical relationships in order to make every aspect of travel management easier. Rocketrip triangulates real-time market data and availability, historical travel patterns of an individual, complex policies, and ALTOUR’s negotiated rates to determine a traveler’s customized Budget to Beat. For every dollar saved under the custom budget, the traveler keeps half.
“We’ve steadfastly built a global team of travel experts who are hyper-focused on providing the best service possible to our clients. However, we quickly saw an opportunity to increase our value,” said Barry Noskeau, Executive VP & COO of ALTOUR. “This partnership is a no-brainer. By bringing Rocketrip on as our exclusive partner for Incentivized Behavioral change we are able to equip our clients with a powerful toolset for managing costs, but in a way that’s user-friendly, and flexible to any particular preferences and goals.”
