TakeTwo and Serko have already successfully migrated multiple clients to the Zeno platform during 2022 with more client launches expected in early 2023.
“Zeno provides our customers the ability to reinvent and transform their corporate travel programs,” said TakeTwo Chief Technology Officer Rob Cope. “The ability to leverage capabilities like Zeno Contextual Policy brings massive benefits to our customers, providing unparalleled configuration to deliver a frictionless booking experience.”
