The 3Sixty team has spent more than 30 years building the industry’s most robust network of over 1 million globally compliant accommodations in 60 countries. 3Sixty’s flexible bid feature increases compliance and control while delivering choice, flexibility, and optimized spend. With a mix of machine learning and human expertise - the marketplace aggregates and curates suitable housing for clients and their employees. 

Travlr ID
A platform providing a decentralised travel profile, powered by self-sovereign identity and distributed ledger technology, that enables travellers to have a single source of truth that can interact with all suppliers in the travel supply chain.

Tripkicks Elevated by Gate4, a new advancement from Tripkicks and Advito, allows companies to make a significant impact on their sustainability goals by providing real-time, accurate emissions information to travelers while booking in SAP Concur Travel. GATE4 is the most robust emissions calculation methodology available to travel managers today. Tripkicks technology uses metadata about the flights as well as custom data from Advito in its algorithm to calculate the emissions for each flight at the time of search. This is the first time that an industry-leading carbon methodology is available within a booking tool. The next iteration of the solution, expected in Q3 of this year, will include GATE4 emissions figures on the hotel and rail search results.

HQ’s SummitGround platform digitizes ground transportation booking, invoicing and reporting of all global rides within policy, including accurate price prediction, billing and payment verification, and real-time spending and carbon emissions data.
