BTN Europe’s annual rundown of the people, products, trends and developments shaping the business travel industry has named SilverDoor’s Orbi as one of the top developments to watch in the coming year.
“At last the serviced apartments industry has a live booking tool that aggregates travel policy information. It’s been a long time coming but with Orbi, SilverDoor has worked hard to make it worthwhile,” says business travel journalist Catherine Chetwynd.
With various new features launched in 2020, including a more powerful analytics function and the ability to search apartments by health and safety accreditations, Orbi was the first online platform of its kind to be launched by the serviced apartments industry.
Offering the largest online inventory of instantly bookable apartments, in more than 160 cities worldwide, Orbi has benefited from subsequent integrations with expense management and virtual payment platforms SAP Concur and Conferma Pay, as well as with traveller tracking services International SOS and Anvil.
SilverDoor’s Chief Customer Officer, Martin Klima, said of the integration “Ensuring we offer the best level of digitisation to our clients has always been a priority for SilverDoor, and this has been all the more critical for our clients in the past year. Developing technology that supports the health, safety and duty of care of all travellers is why we launched Orbi, and we are delighted it has been recognised by the team of ‘Hotlisters’ at BTN Europe”
