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.”
