Gopher compares the hotel’s direct rate vs. the price shown on Concur and abides by the corporate travel policy. Gopher finds a lower rate than corporate rates up to 80% of the time!
When booking with Gopher, travelers land on the hotel’s direct site so they can still receive loyalty points & benefits. Booking direct is safe & familiar.
Your employees are rewarded for finding extra savings. Travelers Love it.
Corporate Loves It.
Easy to Redeem.
Gopher complies with the existing corporate travel policies implemented on Concur. Recommendations may be adjusted to incorporate company rebates.
Partnering with Gopher is like clicking the easy button. Gopher will provide a templated email to announce the program to employees complete with a dedicated landing page and one-click install of the Gopher browser extension.
When travelers choose to book a better rate on the hotel direct site, they are presented a Tripit button on Gopher to submit the itinerary back to Concur. This gives the company full visibility into hotel stays and upholds Duty of Care responsibilities.
Gopher stores data with each comparison made that shows when corporate rates from the Travel Management Company are higher than direct consumer rates.
Company Gopher Customers have access to a dedicated account manager for Gopher implementation, reporting, and questions. Travelers use existing Concur customer service or work directly with the hotels as they do now.
Gopher gives visibility to the cheapest price. Cost of Gopher is only a portion of the actualized SAVINGS against the rates on Concur - so the company always saves.
