Travel management company TripActions has developed a new solution that allows users to book and manage small meetings, the company announced. Dubbed Team Travel, the feature was created in-house, has been fully integrated into the TripActions platform and is available to all users, according to a company spokesperson.
TripActions designed the tool to bring together “distributed employees,” considering the hybrid and remote work models that have become prevalent since the Covid-19 pandemic started. The tool currently allows for up to just 20 attendees for events, but there are plans to expand this in the future, according to TripActions.
With the tool, users can create and customize meetings and events, including such elements as destinations, event start and end dates, participant information, preferred hotels and payment methods. Team Travel also includes Covid-19 destination data, visa requirements and carbon-emissions information, according to the company. Planners can book accommodations at the same time and set up room blocks for attendees to self-serve or book through an event organizer.
In addition, the tool can estimate an event’s overall travel cost using AI algorithms, according to the company.
