Amadeus is joining forces with HRS Global Hotel Solutions to help companies organise small meetings.
The agreement is an extension of a longstanding partnership to distribute the HRS hotel content already available in the Amadeus distribution channel.
The integration of HRS’ meetago service with Amadeus travel and expense offers a solution managing small meeting spend and streamlining the process used to bid for and book rooms.
It enables users to channel small meetings and associated travel through one tool, helping consolidate meeting and travel programmes.
Employees can also now organise a small meeting at one of HRS’ hotels directly via Amadeus.
HRS global partnerships vice president Jason Long said: “Today’s corporate travel manager seeks to leverage their buying power across all lodging scenarios.
“This integration, along with meetago’s simplified process for engaging hotels on small meetings, brings one more crucial element into a company’s view as they optimise their programme.”
Amadeus corporate solution sales and marketing of business travel chief commercial officer Arlene Coyle added: “We all share the need to get out of the office, meet face-to-face, and get inspired on how to grow our businesses together.
“By partnering with HRS, we can now help organisations and travellers around the world organise small meetings within the same platform, making the process simple, stress-free and efficient.”
