Groupize Integrates with Concur to Expand Meeting Management
The meetings management technology provider Groupize has joined the Concur App Center. The technology focuses on small meetings and claims to bridge the gap between transient travel tools and heavier meetings management technology stacks. It offers three levels of functionality: multi-room booking, strategic sourcing and attendee registration.
Arrangers can book meetings with up to nine sleeping rooms in the app, which pulls in preferred properties and rates directly, for now, from Travelport. Sabre currently does not accommodate multi-room bookings, though Groupize has talked to the provider about the opportunity.
For larger programs, the app allows arrangers to negotiate with multiple properties for various meeting elements—including sleeping rooms, meeting spaces, food and beverage, audiovisual and special requests—via an email-based bids system that tracks all stages of the process and facilitates internal corporate approvals for budget and contract authorization.
