ITINERARIES

TRAVEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (TMS)™ SignUp4’s Travel Management System combines your travel and event data to save you time and money. We manage the matching of your attendee’s registration information with the Passenger Name Record (PNR) travel data from your GDS provider. This integration allows you to create manifest reports, determine who needs tickets, enforce travel policy, and track the cost of the travel portion of your event. Call us today for a demonstration of how TMS can help manage your travel reporting. Providing a bridge between multiple systems, SignUp4 streamlines the arduous task of matching travel information with registration data. With our integration directly into the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), we can gather your corporate travel information from multiple sources. Our automated matching tools and reporting provide unprecedented understanding of both your travel and event data in one place. Strategic Meetings Management

The Travel Management System (TMS)™ was created to accommodate meeting and travel departments that use a GDS system to manage their travel. In the past, combining registration information and travel information for attendees has been difficult. By combining these two sources into a single reporting system, travel and meeting planners can better understand how to best handle compliance, logistics, budgets, communication, and reporting.

Compliance You can readily view the registration dates and status of your attendees, when they booked their tickets, and how much the tickets cost. This information allows the planner to view who has or has not yet booked their travel. You can also manage the attendees who may have booked tickets or dates outside of the accepted range for this event as well as the attendees who failed to book via your preferred corporate booking methods.

• No SignUp4 Ticket Look Up or Matching fees * • Unlimited PNRs • Email Confirmations of Itineraries • Arrival/Departure Manifest Reporting • Travel Ticket Cost Reporting by Attendee Type • Automatic Utility for Matching Tickets • Shell PNR Creation

Budgeting TMS reporting presents a clear post-event report of exactly what travel costs are associated with each event, attendee type, or destination. You can know exactly what is being spent to bring your attendees to the destination before they step on a plane.

• Booking Tool Integration

Communication Itineraries and PNR information is available via the SignUp4 Event Management System™ (EMS). This allows you to send your attendees personalized emails containing their entire travel itineraries along with their registration confirmation details. The manifest and budgeting reports can be distributed to all stakeholders so everyone has access to the latest information.

• Time/Airport Based Reporting to Manage Transportation

• Travel Policy Compliance Reporting

• Detailed Flight and Confirmation Numbers

• View Hotel Check-in and Travel Dates in Single Report * Your GDS contract may incur lookup fees.

Reporting TMS provides a wealth of reporting options to view and use your travel data. For example, there are reports to ensure attendees who have indicated they need travel arrangements have booked a ticket to the event. TMS includes standard manifest, itinerary, and arrival/departure reports. The travel data is integrated with our “Build Your Own” reporting system. This allows you to create your own blend of information collected on the registration form with travel data.

The Spend Management System™ (SMS) allows your enterprise to efficiently manage all aspects of your meetings, events, and conferences. With meeting request management, budgeting, vendor contract management, and workflow, SMS gives you all the tools necessary to implement and manage an effective Strategic Meetings Management program for your entire organization. For many companies, meetings and events are just another part of the travel department – a very large part. Almost 50% of the department’s budget is dedicated to travel for meetings and events. However, if you ask these companies for details on how that money is spent, many times they do not know. The reality is, most of the detailed costs associated with a corporation’s total meeting spend are simply not tracked. Using these tools, you can answer your budget questions and provide structure for your department to succeed.

Negotiation By aggregrating the budgeting data across all of your events, SMS becomes a powerful negotiation tool. Workflow One of the pillars of SMS is to define the stages of the meeting lifecycle in your organization. Using this customizable categorization and tracking tool, your meetings will not get lost in the shuffle. Rules Every organization has business rules for how a meeting takes place. You can use our rules generator to ensure that customized approvals and notifications take place for every meeting following your internal process. Rules can be based on many aspects of a meeting including budget, stage, manager, meeting planner, business unit, and more. Communication & Management SMS provides a dashboard with all current meetings, their statuses, and the ability to quickly drill down into needed detailed information. Numerous email alerts can be created using the Rules and Workflow components to notify the appropriate personnel of the progress of the event or the need for an approval.

• Business Intelligence Tools • Workflow Based on Your Business Rules • Fully Customizable Budgeting Utility • Ability to Track Approvals and History • Opportunity to Create Your Own Life Cycle Stages • Integrated Meeting Request Form • Dashboard of All Meetings • ROI Reporting • Vendor and Contract Management • Manage Unlimited Meetings and Events • Track Meeting Spend

Budgeting The Spend Management System allows you to track the anticipated and actual costs for every aspect of your event. You can also show the savings versus wholesale rates to demonstrate the success of your negotiations. All budget categories and items are fully customizable to meet your accounting requirements and can be exported for further analysis or importing into your GL package.

Analytics and Business Intelligence Using the information from the budgeting tool, combined with attendee data from the Event Management System and the Travel Management System, the Spend Management System business intelligence tools give you invaluable information to make the best decisions for your organization.
