TripStax is modular stack of ten proprietary cloud-based API connected travel management modules (Approve, Analytics, Content, Docs, Hotels, Mobile, Portal, Profile, Track and QC) powered by the TripStax Core an unrivalled data-processing engine. The Core consumes, enriches and normalises booking, profile and finance data from any content source. The Core transforms the data management process as it doesn’t require a GDS centric PNR. It becomes the sole ‘source of truth’ for TMCs’ corporate client data, ensuring the clean, accurate flow of that data to each TripStax module. TripStax is built on a groundbreaking,cost reducing commercial model for our customers. Most technology vendors charge TMCs multiple and costly transaction fees based on the consumption and storage of data. TripStax only charges once for ingestion of data, regardless of how many times that data is processed within one of the TripStax modules. TripStax is leading the charge for the iterative transformation that the business travel tech landscape needs, by changing how travel data is consumed, managed and utilised.

Zenmer is an SaaS-based Global & Shared Business Travel Platform for TMCs, Corporations and Suppliers to maximize revenue, improve traveler experience, and reduce leakage using web and mobile apps. Corporations can manage their global travel spend in a single dashboard with complete control and real-time insight into all global locations, also allowing them to work with multiple TMCs, suppliers, and tech companies using secure Open-APIs. TMCs can use the Agent Desktop to book and service clients with full visibility into the client’s travel policy program. The proprietary Order Management System (OMS) standardizes the end-to-end booking and post-ticketing process independent of any supplier or Point Of Sale. The Open-API platform allows 3rd party developers to enable TMCs and Corporations with value-added services like CO2 offsets, on-trip upselling, travel alerts, duty of care and more.
