News from the GBTA Convention: TRIPBAM, TROOP, Riskline and Reside 3Sixty

TRIPBAM has introduced a new bundled service offering to its platform, offering air and hotel rate reshopping, auditing, benchmarking and sourcing. It claims that travel buyers can save at least 20% on their total travel spend with the new product, which combines its hotel services with new air services that launched last year. TRIPBAM Enterprise is only open to buyers through direct contract and not via travel management company resellers.

TROOP, the meetings management platform, will begin offering travel and meetings booking capabilities through an integration with Spotnana, a provider of cloud-based travel technology. It means customers will be able to plan meetings and then seamlessly transition to booking flights, hotels, car rentals and rail tickets inside TROOP’s user interface powered by Spotnana.

Riskline has launched a revamped version of its travel risk alerts. Alerts 4.0 will provide corporate travellers and managers with improved clarity of risk alerts on potential and ongoing events that may jeopardise the safety of their trip. Due to a rise in natural disasters, Riskline has added subcategories for Natural and Environmental related alerts and has made viewing more user-friendly with an improved layout.

Reside, the provider of professionally operated and managed global alternative accommodation, has relaunched its cloud-based booking platform, 3Sixty, with new functionality and a complete brand refresh. Users now interact with 3Sixty as a marketplace, accessible to any member of the public, with 3Sixty’s HomeMatch technology working behind the scenes of every search, leveraging machine learning and human expertise to curate the best results.
