Amadeus and StarCite, Inc., a provider of web-based solutions that help companies strategically manage corporate meetings and events, have agreed to provide integrated online travel management and meeting management services to corporations.
StarCite will integrate its corporate enterprise meetings management platform with Amadeus e-Travel Management. Amadeus' system offers a comprehensive travel management solution that serves every aspect of a corporation's travel needs through a single entry point. This enables corporations to effectively manage all aspects of the event/meetings process.
“Meetings represent a major area of spend for corporate travel," said Ray Pawley, vice president eCommerce for Amadeus North America. "We’re pleased to help corporations further their travel management programs and gain new control by providing event planners and meeting attendees with a fast and simple way to book travel during the meeting registration process.”
StarCite provides an online software platform for enterprise meetings management that helps organizations bring visibility, savings, and control to corporate meetings and event spending. With StarCite, companies can manage and report on every aspect of the meeting planning process, including meeting requests and approvals, online sourcing for meeting destinations, budgeting, and online attendee management.
Through this new integration, meeting attendees will be able to book travel on Amadeus e-Travel Management directly from the StarCite Attendee Management application when they are registering for a meeting. The new travel booking feature is expected to be available to customers by year-end.
