Digital tool building company Triptease was named as Travel Innovator of the year at Phocuswright Europe, held in Dublin last week.
The firm was awarded the accolade for its new tool, Pricecheck, which encourages direct hotel bookings.
Charlie Osmond, co-founder of Triptease, said: “The new product is a smart widget that sits on a hotel’s booking engine and shows live prices from three OTAs, which gives consumers confidence that the hotel is charging the right rate and, in turn, increases bookings.”
He said that 2015 was about increasing the number of hotels the company works with and adopting the system on more accounts.
A total of 13 innovators presented their products at the conference, with Indigo placed as runner up for its taxi booking platform for mobile devices.
