MADRID (PRWEB) August 05, 2019
Troop Travel, an award-winning startup in the corporate group travel, meetings and events planning, announces the integration of meetings.com group hotel sourcing and booking services into its planning platform. The additional data feeds and services will allow corporations using the Troop Travel platform to plan, source and book any corporate meetings and events in minutes.
TroopTravel’s Big Data planning platform aggregates thousands of data points which helps taking informed decisions on corporate meetings and events planning. While the startup has been focussing mainly on making the planning of these events perfect, the integration of fulfillment partners has been a logical step, as Leonard Cremer, one of the founders of TroopTravel stated: ”After our customers have successfully planned their meetings and events on our platform, they continuously asked us whether we can help with the fulfillment. Thus, an integration of fulfillment services was just a logical step.”
This is, however, just the beginning, as Dennis Vilovic, the other founder of TroopTravel mentions: “While working with a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies we learned that every customer has different needs and partners they want to work with. Thus, we are planning to integrate a number of different service providers and we are very excited that with meetings.com we have integrated a leading online seller of group hotel bookings which immediately create a massive value for our customers.” Future integrations will be included as additional air services, ground bookings and management modules.
With the integration of meetings.com, TroopTravel offers an end-to-end solution for corporate group travel, meetings and events, starting at the very first question of “Where do we meet?”
100 travelers from 15 different starting locations. Where do we meet? This is the initial challenge TroopTravel started to solve since it was founded in 2017. The team saw the massive potential of saving money and time when being flexible on where to have a meeting. Their big data analysis platform pulls together thousands of data points which help travel and event planners to make informed decisions. Whether it is around travel cost, ease of travel, carbon footprint, travel policy, security, visa requirements, etc. the platform combines all relevant data points in one place.
TroopTravel’s work has won a number of industry awards such as the Disrupt Award at the Business Travel Show in 2018 or the Battle of the Pitches 2019 at BCD Travel’s Mindmeld conference. Today, Troop Travel is the strategic meetings & an events planning platform for several Fortune 500 companies.
Meetings.com is the leading provider of online services in the global hotel marketplace, and an established resource for group event planners and hotel partners alike. Today, Meetings.com provides its travel technology expertise to over 5 million customers globally while servicing an estimated $10 billion in 2018.
