Frankfurt/London – bd4travel, the leading provider of intelligent personalisation for travel, has been awarded the prestigious Travolution Award Best Technology Provider 2016.
bd4travel was one of 5 finalists within this competitive category. The candidates were judged by a panel of proven business leaders, experts and entrepreneurs from the UK. The Travolution Awards are the UK travel industry’s highest accolade for innovation and excellence online. Companies and brands compete in a select number of categories, whilst entrepreneurs and rising stars were honoured in the individual awards.
For bd4travel, this follows the 2015 award of the Travolution Startup of the Year. “It is a great experience to go from best startup to the best technology provider within just one year” says Andy Owen-Jones, CEO and co-founder of the company. “We are still less than 30 people in the team but we are progressing extremely well to make the online experience as personal and adaptable as in a good travel shop.”
“Today typically 99% of all users leave without booking because they cannot find what they want – this is terrible both for the users and for the shop. bd4travel’s technology allows to listen to all the information-signals provided by a customer in a digital travel shop and to create predictive user profiles for each one of them. It is from this basis that we seek to deliver perfectly matched offers and services to the individual. We want our clients to have higher engagement, satisfaction and, as a result, higher conversions and customer loyalty.”
bd4travel is intelligent personalization for travel – providing digital empathy and personal engagement with anonymous customers. The company was launched in 2013 by three former colleagues who realized that booking travel online is often tedious and inefficient. With collective expertise in data and travel technology, including positions at Traveltainment, Amadeus, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and Yahoo, the founders joined forces to improve the way travel is sold.
bd4travel’s solutions are highly recognised by leading travel authorities such as Phocuswright, Travolution and Travel Technology Europe. The company received a multi-million Euro VC funding in a round led by Hoxton Ventures and Talis Capital. The company is based in Frankfurt, Germany and has an office in London, UK.
