Business travel management platform Tripism is launching a restaurant recommendation service for travellers.
The “data-driven” service will use anonymised restaurant spend data for each corporate customer to create personalised restaurant recommendations for travellers based on company culture, expense policy and office locations.
Tripism is working in partnership on the innovation with Dinova, which offers a preferred network of restaurants for business diners, to provide recommendations to suit travellers’ needs and dietary requirements.
Adam Kerr, Tripism’s CEO, said: “The addition of our restaurant feature is another step in Tripism’s mission to transform the world of business travel, by giving a personalised experience to travellers and providing travel managers a best-in-class travel programme.”
The search engine delivers restaurant recommendations based on several factors, such as the local knowledge of a traveller’s colleagues who live in destination cities, being convenient for the office or client locations, and meeting company culture and expense policies.
Alison Quinn, Dinova’s CEO, added: “Business travellers have very different needs than the typical leisure traveller and are a crucial market for restaurants.
“They often entertain large groups or use a dining opportunity to connect with VIP clients - these are high stakes dining events where the consequences of poor food or service are more severe.”
