whyGo and Global Videoconferencing Network launch the first booking suite tailored to travel management companies

“After using the platform, I can see fellow travelers, corporates and TMCs alike jumping to be a part of it,” says James Matthews, whyGo CEO.

(PRWEB) June 20, 2013

whyGo’s exclusive travel industry partner Global Videoconferencing Network (GVN) has launched the first booking suite tailored to travel management companies (TMC) for video conferencing facilities..

The booking suite allows direct and corporate customers as well as any TMC the ability to book private and public rooms as part of the travel solution. All rooms can be booked through either an online booking tool or an offline booker supported by their existing travel agents.

Designed to be a similar to booking a flight, the GVN booking process is specifically tailored to how corporate customers book flights with their TMC.

“Designing our process this way means travel agents can easily provide videoconferencing in the very same way they offer the existing travel alternatives,” says Glenn Wastyn, GVN President and CEO. “This means the TMC finally has a perfect answer for every type of meeting request the business traveler may have.”

Through whyGo’s public room network and global operation teams, the GVN platform enables TMCs all over the world to access over 3,500 public video conferencing and Telepresence venues. Over 1,100 of the venues offer real time availability and instant confirmations, making the GVN network the largest network of live inventory in the world.

Combining that with the ability for a corporate user to load in their own private conferencing rooms, and synchronizing them with the major calendaring systems in the world for real time availability of their own corporate stock, creates a booking platform unrivaled in the market today.

“The GVN booking suite is truly fantastic,” says James Matthews, whyGo CEO. “The GVN team has truly done a remarkable job in creating a process in line with the existing travel industry standards to make it as easy as possible for the business traveler to find, schedule and book videoconferencing meetings. After using the platform, I can see fellow travelers, corporates and TMCs alike jumping to be a part of it.”
