Travel Incorporated today unveiled a turnkey, end-to-end program for simple meetings. In partnership with Groupize, this new approach will replace the current method of manually handling the tedious processes of simple meetings management and avoid bypassing the travel department. The result is increased efficiency, reduced cost, and increased leverage spend for travel managers, procurement, and expense professionals.
With a global footprint that reaches more than 109 countries on six continents, Travel Incorporated is a forward-thinking travel management organization dedicated to the highest level of service, delivering global consolidation and cost savings initiatives across your entire travel program. As part of their ongoing commitment to reduce travel costs and to identify improved process efficiencies, Travel Incorporated offers a custom-branded company meetings portal, which has an intuitive user experience ideal for occasional meeting planners. The company portal can be configured with rules for self-service, hybrid, or full-service, including negotiated rates, company policies, approvals process, contract signature, and more. By partnering with Groupize, Travel Incorporated is offering flexible technology which can handle many use cases, including instant booking of sleeping rooms for team or projects, sourcing of meeting space, attendee management, registration sites, air management, room block management, event app, budgeting, and SAP Concur integration.
“We have seen an increased demand from our clients to help them manage their simple meetings and events more cost-effectively,” explains Tracie Carillo, Senior VP Business Development and Marketing. “Adding the Groupize solution to our TI Meetings Management portfolio leverages all the benefits that Travel Incorporated brings to our clients, including industry-leading technology, a personalized approach to business travel, and a tailored program to deliver beyond our customers’ service expectations.”
Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien, COO of Groupize, said, “We are thrilled to team up with Travel Incorporated, as they share the same philosophy of raising the bar to deliver greater business value and solve challenges with innovative technology. Our simple meetings solution is a natural add-on to Concur and allows organizations to maximize their investment in their Concur programs to finally bridge the gap between transient and meetings. We look forward to working with a proven industry leader to set a new standard for simple meetings management, oversight, and experience through our revolutionary platform.”
