Egencia to supercharge Technology, Product and Data Science capabilities
TMC to hire nearly 100 staff globally, including tech and data experts
Orlando, Florida, 17 November 2021 — Today, from the GBTA Convention 2021, Egencia announced a major recruitment drive to supercharge its existing technical capabilities in mobile, user experience and end-to-end development, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning to further expand the innovations and products released into market.
Egencia is recruiting for nearly 100 full-time positions across the US, Europe and India, including software developers, data analysts, product managers, designers and data engineers. The expanded team will focus on developing new products for its customers that will provide better user experiences, which are driven by automation and intelligent data-informed solutions.
The investment reflects the company’s belief that applying data-fuelled intelligence to its products and services will create powerful advantages for the corporate travel manager and their travelling employees. These benefits include enhanced personalisation, simplified customer experience and greater cost efficiency.
Mark Hollyhead, President of Egencia, said: “Business travel lags behind other sectors, including retail, financial services, healthcare and e-commerce, when it comes to the application of data science. We’re investing heavily in enhancing our capabilities in this area to ensure near-term value for our customers and long-term growth as we move towards an open platform that unlocks new opportunities for travel managers and business travellers alike.
Egencia has already established itself as a leader in this space — having won multiple industry awards for best product and more than $1 billion USD in new customers this year. The team has continued to lead in shaping the future of business travel, including being the first to have launched Travel Advisor, a duty-of-care solution that integrates alerts and advisories directly into the travel booking process. Egencia has also helped companies integrate with other SaaS products with the increased development of a modern extensible platform using APIs.
Francisca Zanoguera, Vice President of Data & Analytics at Egencia: “We know that applying data science to Egencia’s end-to-end travel management solutions creates new and exciting possibilities to transform our sector. We are looking forward to bringing more AI and ML-powered products, services, experiences and intelligence to the market.”
