The 2021


Here are the innovators and innovations shaking up the industry… TAPTRIP The young and enthusiastic TapTrip team has brought a breath of fresh air to the sector with eye-catching marketing campaigns and bold ambitions to make managing travel “as easy as watching Netflix".

Its technology – designed for mobile first, not as a mobile add-on – is achieving impressive results: 95% compliance, 98% repeat business, up to 30% savings on monthly travel spend and 90% faster bookings. In a change of direction, TapTrip is about to launch Vessul, a tech solution designed to tackle the logistical challenge of crew rotation for marine, oil and renewables. If anyone is going to make waves in this niche corner of the sector (deliberate pun) it’s these guys.

THRUST CARBON Driven by the belief that going green must be effortless, Thrust Carbon is creating the future of emissions reporting, reductions and removal with products which are easy to use, visually persuasive and designed to work with existing solutions. It’s working in partnership with TMCs and directly with Fortune 500 clients, who can view their travel emissions


and see where they need to change their behaviour thanks to engaging dashboards, innovative carbon budgeting and point-of-booking nudges. It’s already making a difference and the next step is to integrate its full product suite inside the OBT environment.
