Tripleseat | February 03, 2023
Tripleseat, a prominent cloud-based sales and catering management platform for hotels, recently announced a collaboration with Cvent, a leader in events, meetings, and hospitality technology, creating a new integration that will unite and automate the event management and inquiry process.
This integration will connect the Tripleseat platform to the Cvent Supplier Network. As a result, event planners utilizing Cvent to submit a request for proposal (RFP) to venues will automatically be added as new leads on the Tripleseat accounts of the respective venues. To benefit from this integration, venues must be a Cvent Supplier Network member as well as a Tripleseat customer.
Moreover, the integration allows venues, particularly hotels, to gain from the global reach of the two companies. More than 15,000 hotels, restaurants, and unique venues worldwide use Tripleseat to book 10 million events and experience a 35% increase in customer revenue. Additionally, over 90,000 corporate planners use Cvent to source venues and manage events.
Jonathan Morse, CEO of Tripleseat, said, "There is no doubt that the number of events being planned and the cost per event is growing." He added, "Which is exactly why we partnered with Cvent. Our new integration will help venues that work with both Tripleseat and Cvent to reach thousands of event planners who are looking for properties to host their events in 2023."

SUNRATE | January 10, 2023
SUNRATE, recognized as a leading financial solutions provider, collaborated with Visa, a world leader in digital payments. The partnership is to enhance the travel solutions offered by SUNRATE.
In the past, SUNRATE's stakeholders had only one way to pay for travel-related expenses with their travel partners. Now with the partnership, they will have a virtual corporate card that makes this process much easier and more streamlined.
SUNRATE, at the end of last year, shared news of a strategic alliance with Agoda, the world's largest online travel agency. In 2021, the company was accepted into the Visa network as a primary participant.
SUNRATE’S corporate cards will help its travel partners to have control over spending track and allocations. In addition, a corporate card will ensure the security of the transactions and the data for the users. Technologies like Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have made it difficult for shared card information to be misused by imposing a time limit on each transaction.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Level 1 is an international standard for financial data security. SUNRATE has been certified to meet this standard.
"The launch of Visa virtual corporate cards is a monumental step for SUNRATE as we cement our leadership as a one-stop B2B payment partner, especially for the travel industry. Since our partnership announcement with Agoda, we have worked with many other travel stakeholders, including other OTAs and we take pride in being able to solve their overall business needs. The Visa virtual corporate card will be a key solution for our customers and beyond,"
-Shawn Qin, Head of Card Business, SUNRATE.
