SignUp4 Announces Product Integrations with Amadeus
Leader in Event and Meetings Management Software and Global Provider of Travel Technology Solutions to streamline meeting and travel planning
Also integrated is SignUp4's Travel Management System (TMS) with the Amadeus global distribution system (GDS), allowing for meeting event management intelligence. This gives SignUp4 customers who use the Amadeus distribution system in the U.S. and Canada the ability to pull flight itineraries directly from Amadeus into SignUp4. Meeting and event planners now have complete insight into travel policy compliance; they can easily generate reports from within SignUp4 that show, for example, which employees are out of policy, which have not booked a flight, and which travel procedure needs to be addressed.
"The ability to pull custom reports specific to each meeting or travel planner's needs is a unique and defining measure in the meeting industry," explains Nick Romano, President of SignUp4. "We have given the meeting planners a resolution for matching meeting registrants with their company's travel guidelines. They know who has registered for a meeting or event, and they now know who is in or out of policy for that meeting. This is valuable information."
SignUp4 and Amadeus have also entered into a joint referral program, effective immediately. "By recommending each other as a stand-alone entity, we use our reputations as industry leaders to give those looking for single product solutions an educated opinion. They can take this information and make a smart business decision based on their individual needs." said Romano.
"We're working closely with Amadeus on defining and offering solutions to meet the needs of the meeting industry," says John Broaddus, Vice President of Sales. "We anticipate the industry to embrace this and other projects as ways to make meeting and travel planning easier and to give them the insight and ability to plan smarter."
"By integrating and aligning the Amadeus and SignUp4 solutions, we have found an innovative way to save planners and companies not just time, but money," said Eddie Tie, Director of Strategic Business Development, Amadeus North America. "We have created an information repository for business travel that will empower the meeting and travel planner to increase compliance for corporate travel policies and procedures while increasing their efficiency and cost savings."
