SpotHero for Business, a corporate parking reservation service, and BCD Travel, a global travel management company, have announced a partnership at GBTA (the Global Business Travel Association) Convention 2018 in San Diego.
“Navigating cities by car while traveling is difficult enough without having to worry about finding a place to park”
The new partnership integrates SpotHero for Business’ parking solution with BCD Travel’s SolutionSource, a marketplace of authorized technology partners, and TripSource, a trip management platform. As of today, SpotHero for Business now appears in SolutionSource, which means BCD clients can work with their account managers to set up parking expense management in a few simple steps, giving travelers an easy way to find, book, and save on parking. SpotHero for Business will be available in the TripSource mobile app in the next phase of development.
“We’re excited that BCD Travel has chosen SpotHero for Business to power parking for clients wherever they go: airports, hotels, downtown offices and anywhere in between,” said Becca Rabinowitz, Head of SpotHero for Business. “Our mission is to help business travelers park for work without the work. By integrating with a marketplace like SolutionSource, SpotHero for Business makes it easy for BCD clients to offer their travelers an easy-to-use solution that helps them find, reserve, and expense parking.”
Parking has been a long-overlooked category of travel management expenses. Now through SpotHero for Business’ tech-enabled solution, travel management companies can reduce the cost of corporate parking for businesses and travelers.
“Navigating cities by car while traveling is difficult enough without having to worry about finding a place to park,” said Will Pinnell, Vice President of Digital and Product at BCD Travel. “By bringing SpotHero into our SolutionSource marketplace and our traveler platform, TripSource, we’re making the process of finding and reserving a parking space hassle-free for our travelers.”
SpotHero’s integration with BCD Travel is the latest in a series of new partnerships, building on SpotHero for Business’ largest expansion since its launch in March 2017. GBTA attendees can find SpotHero for Business at Booth #1353, as well as featured in the GBTA Keynote with Kevin O’Leary from ABC’s “Shark Tank” and the education session ‘Find New Money with Mobile Tools’.
