Client platform offers access to BCD applications, peer collaboration, training material and industry information

Utrecht, The Netherlands, September 26, 2019 – Leading global travel management company BCD Travel introduces Connect, a digital engagement platform exclusively for BCD customers, as a continued investment in digital engagement services. Connect provides a community environment that fosters program value and collaboration between BCD and their global customers. In addition to community inspired discussion groups, Connect serves as a single destination for program best practices, product updates and case studies, proprietary research, industry trends, support, account details and more.

“At BCD Travel we do more than manage travel programs. We serve as a trusted advisor to our customers. Connect will give our customers a dynamic digital environment in which to interact with BCD program optimization and technology experts, peers with shared interests, and provide information and guidance on our various products and solutions,” said Yannis Karmis, Senior Vice President of Product Planning and Innovation for BCD Travel. “Just as important, Connect will allow us to hear directly from our customers on a variety of topics that will shape our best practices from technology roadmaps and service models to traveler engagement and program intelligence.”

Corporate travel professionals want to have a pulse on multiple aspects of their program. But with all the new information pouring in daily, it’s a challenge to keep up.

“Both in our professional and personal lives, we use a lot of communication tools. They make it so easy to share documents, ideas, videos, slides and much more,” said Miriam Moscovici, Senior Director, Research and Corporate Innovation at BCD Travel. “Combining this trend with the need of the corporate travel community to constantly stay up-to-date, led us to create Connect as a digital collaboration tool that will simplify the lives of corporate travel professionals.”

Connect is already available to first movers and will be gradually rolled out to all clients in BCD’s wholly owned markets in the next few weeks.
