Employees learn to search and book travel on consumer websites that spend millions of dollars to create fun, compelling experiences years before they join your company – it’s no wonder that
50% of hotels and 28% of flights are booked off-channel, outside of corporate travel programs.
We believe that the solution to the off-channel booking blindspot isn’t tighter restrictions nor another limiting booking tool but instead, using data to give the traveler more accountability and the travel manager and/or TMC real-time insights into where, what and why travelers book business travel on their favorite sites.
Shep gives the traveler more freedom and the travel manager/TMC more control and visibility.

After being embedded at a major GDS, working on integrating a startup’s technology into a booking tool, Daniel realized that no matter how many bells and whistles a corporate booking tool has, travelers still want to book on their favorite sites.
Daniel, along with co-founders, Rey and Rafael, started Shep to eliminate the natural tension that exists between a company’s need for control and employees’ desire for freedom by allowing traveler autonomy and real-time manager/TMC visibility and reporting.
