TripStax is a fully connected modular stack of travel tech applications, driven by ‘The Core’, a central data processing powerhouse which consumes, manages and enriches profile, booking and finance data across each module in stack.
TripStax is continuing to bolster its travel management tech proposition with the addition of a significant ground transport component after announcing a strategic partnership with Jyrney.
Jyrney’s proprietary platform consolidates the traditionally fragmented booking and management of multi-modal ground transport options, including taxi, ride-hail and chauffeur within a single solution. Jyrney works with travel management companies, online booking tools and GDSs through white label solutions and APIs, as well as connecting suppliers with corporate customers.
TripStax is a fully connected modular stack of travel tech applications, driven by ‘The Core’, a central data processing powerhouse which consumes, manages and enriches profile, booking and finance data across each module in stack. These modules include Analytics, Approve, Content, Docs, Mobile, Portal, Profile, and Track. The move to integrate ground transport is part of TripStax’s strategy to build out its tech proposition with relevant and complementary solutions and content. This approach has already been demonstrated by the recent acquisition of Hotelzon, which adds significant hotel content into the TripStax offering.
Jyrney’s platform offers a unique solution for travellers by not only granting access to seamless ground transport options, but also managing the ground element of the trip. In the event of unexpected taxi delays, Jyrney’s software steps in to ensure the passenger’s timely arrival by re-allocating the booking to the closest available taxi company.
Jyrney is integrated via API to the TripStax Portal module, which is a TMC and corporate client portal offering a single access point to the different TripStax modules, as well as third party content providers, that are relevant to the customer and the user. Mutual TMC clients of TripStax and Jyrney can access Jyrney’s ground transport content via Portal to book and manage their corporate customers’ mobility requirements. It also means that data from Jyrney bookings can be seamlessly included in traveller itineraries, traveller tracking and approval processes.
Scott Wylie, Chief Technology Officer, TripStax commented: “At TripStax we are constantly looking at ways to enhance our tech offering and proposition to TMCs and their own corporate customers. Jyrney is an innovative tech solution that is looking to do things differently in the ground transport sector to better integrate and connect mobility with business travel. Ground transport and mobility are increasing important to corporates as a part of trip management. We were looking to bring a ground transport component to TripStax to support our TMC customers’ needs. Jyrney was the obvious provider to partner with as they are rapidly becoming the go-to tech platform for ground transport. We are excited to be working with the Jyrney team.”
Daniel Price, CEO of Jyrney added: “Partnering with TripStax is a game-changer for our mutual TMC customers. With the integration of ground transport options, we’re bridging the gap in technical connectivity and making it easier for TMCs to offer multi-modal trips. The real-time quoting, availability and vehicle tracking will revolutionise the way customers plan and manage their trips. We’re thrilled to be on this journey with TripStax and can’t wait to see what the future holds for our partnership.”
