UNITED STATES Active Network, a pioneer in cloud-based activity and participant management solutions, have launched its Meeting Locator – a tool specifically designed to help meeting planners make informed decisions when choosing destinations.
Partnering with Carlson Wagonlit Travel, the Meeting Locator is the new addition to Active Network's StarCite strategic meetings management (SMM) platform, delivering relevant information like airfares, destination essentials, hotel room rates, sustainability and cost-effectiveness.
The Meeting Locator makes this happen by tapping on global travel and lodging data, giving it a presence in over 100 countries around the world. The powerful tool makes use of a complex algorithm to calculate the best solutions for planners.
“Traditional approaches to determining meeting locations are inefficient and laborious,” said JR Sherman, senior vice-president of business solutions at Active Network. “With increasing scrutiny on spend management and compliance with travel policy requirements, it’s paramount that corporate meeting planners have the best technology at their fingertips. Meeting Locator gives them the robust, integrated, intelligence they need to help make sound business decisions backed by global data from the industry’s leading travel and meeting spend platforms.”
The Meeting Locator is available immediately to existing StarCite customers.
