SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 05, 2016) - Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, announced a major upgrade to its Deem Travel software, making it easier than ever for business travelers to plan and book trips. The upcoming release provides a best-in-class, end-to-end experience spanning mobile and desktop platforms, and features key enhancements for international travel. It will be officially unveiled at this year's Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Conference taking place in Denver, July 17-20.
"This release will set a new standard for business travel," said Deem President and Chief Operating Officer John Rizzo. "It not only speeds and simplifies the travel booking process from search to purchase, but it helps users make more informed, cost-conscious decisions, factoring in their personal preferences and company policies. Everybody benefits."
Next-Gen UI, Global Enhancements
Based on years of customer and partner feedback and usability testing, the redesigned apps have a sleek, consumer-style user interface that makes the booking experience as simple as possible for new users, yet as efficient and powerful as possible for frequent travelers. Users can view in-depth information on flights, rail, car service and hotels at a glance, comparing fare options, amenities, hotel room photos and other details with unmatched ease.
The new user interface has also been designed to fully accommodate language and currency localization and international suppliers including airlines, rail services and hotels.
Company travel requirements including negotiated rates, preferred suppliers, corporate policy, approval workflow and dynamic messaging are seamlessly interwoven throughout the booking process. Deem's cloud-based rules engine gives corporations and travel management companies (TMCs) an unprecedented ability to customize the user experience based on company policies, user preferences and contextual data. For example, companies can set mobile push notifications to remind employees to add a hotel to a flight-only itinerary days before a trip or to warn travelers in duty of care scenarios.
