Sabre`s GetThere has introduced real-time group reservation functionality to its Web-based meeting planning product, GetThere DirectMeetings.
Catering to corporate meeting planners who arrange meetings of less than 100 attendees, the technology enables planners to drastically reduce the complexity and time required to locate and secure a meeting facility from weeks to minutes, by providing real-time access to hotels. GetThere is the first vendor to offer this feature, and current GetThere customers using DirectMeetings have immediate access to this new functionality at no additional charge.
DirectMeetings` real-time reservation capability allows hotels to reach an additional market segment and open new channels to previously untapped companies. Having access to corporations that use GetThere DirectMeetings provides these hotels with a pre-qualified channel of business.
For a limited time, corporate planners who don`t have access to GetThere DirectMeetings can access the group reservation capability by clicking on new user link at www.public.gtdm.net
