New York and Bloomington, Indiana – August 2, 2019 – Gant Travel and Tripkicks announced today a partnership to improve the traveler booking and management experience by incorporating rewards for employees who save on business travel using the Concur Travel booking tool. The two companies will work to develop a seamless solution for Gant’s customers to benefit from Tripkicks’ technology that brings behavioral economics principals to the Concur Travel booking process to reduce costs and engage employees of Gant’s clients.
The collaboration seeks to elevate Gant’s traveler’s experience while helping travel, finance, and HR teams meet their business goals.

By motivating employees to spend less on their business travel, Tripkicks’ clients have seen savings of over 15% on the average business trip.
“We’ve carefully studied our market and determined that the capabilities and return on investment of Tripkicks is head and shoulders above what is available in the ecosystem,” said John Brehm, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Gant Travel. “We know the benefits and barriers to launching a gamification program, Tripkicks is what our clients are asking for in a gamification tool. We expect this to be a winning partnership.”

We’re excited about the role that Tripkicks and Gant as partners have in that journey,” said Jeff Berk, Tripkicks CEO. “With a unique focus on utilizing technology to improve the traveler experience, Gant understands and supports its clients using the SAP Concur platform like few TMCs can – and that model fits exactly where we want to be.”
