Amadeus has reinforced its commitment to offering an end-to-end service for corporate travel with the launch of Corporate Suite, aimed at optimising business meeting planning.
The new solution is a one-stop shop for corporate travel related services that will allow travellers to choose the most cost effective meeting prior to incurring costs.
Amadeus Corporate Suite is a highly flexible, modular solution that can be adapted to different market requirements and integrated with the corporate travel IT platform of the customer’s preferred local provider.
While other self-booking solutions or open booking initiatives are purely focused on travel, Corporate Suite will provide users with the total cost of meetings – comparing travel and other alternatives such as videoconferencing – upfront and in just a few seconds.
Florian Tinnus, head of corporations and resellers at Amadeus said: “The Amadeus Corporate Suite illustrates our commitment to investing in the Corporate Travel IT segment in order to provide solutions that address the needs of corporations and TMCs.
“Companies such as MSD will now have an innovative, all-in-one solution that optimises business meetings from start to finish and that even helps travellers decide whether to take a trip or not.
“The solution is also valuable for TMCs, enhancing the services they offer their customers.”
Furthermore, Corporate Suite will help participants to coordinate the decision-making around the timing, location and travel arrangements through a few clicks.
The solution will recommend the best possible meeting time, place and method while complying with corporate travel policies and rules, and will allow users to book their trips in just one click.
Corporations using the solution will benefit from an improved and automated collaboration process that will accelerate the meeting organisation and facilitate the steering of corporate travel policies, which will ultimately result in cost savings.
Corporate Suite will enable Travel Management Companies to offer value-added services to their customers beyond bookings, increasing revenue opportunities.
