TripBam, the hotel shopping, benchmarking and analytics provider, announced a new certification program for managed travel consultants to use TripBam’s technology to source and manage corporate hotel programs. Travel consultancies participating in the program to date include Areka Consulting, Direct View Consulting (a division of Direct Travel), GoldSpring Consulting, KesselRun Consulting, Nina & Pinta Consulting, Opteva Consulting, Partnership Travel Consulting and PivotPoints Consulting. TripBam said it established the program in response to requests from clients for resources that will enable savings opportunities identified by TripBam’s technology.  Some of these opportunities include following through on insights gathered via TripBam’s hotel intelligence data and renegotiating or replacing underperforming hotels. For corporates, said a statement, the network of consultancies will help interested buyers migrate to The TripBam Way — a method that enables companies to switch to majority dynamic hotel agreements that renew automatically each year, eliminating annual hotel RFP’s and saving more money in the post-COVID-19 environment than the traditional way of sourcing.
