LastRoom is pleased to launch "LastRoom for Business" today at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2014. "LastRoom for Business" is a cloud-based software tailored to SMBs looking to cut their travel costs, skipping the expensive fees of the existent travel management systems. The great innovation here bases in a combination of content and data, since "LastRoom for Business" is the first business travel solution to bring together the best rates from the net in a large number of accommodations worldwide, with high levels of corporate control, such as bill reconciliation, reports and analytics tools.
Since the mobile app for same-day hotel booking, LastRoom is making its’ biggest push so far in launching a new B2B solution, which could change the rules of corporate travel. Free to companies of any size, this unique travel booking solution offers more than 500,000 all-budget hotels worldwide, together with apartments, hostels and B&B.
The problem of big corporations is the limited content of GDS systems, “LastRoom for Business” gives business users access to a global inventory of all-budget hotels, from 1 to 5 stars, B&B, apartments and hostels. Many of which are not available in the GDS platforms.
On the other hand, the "long tail of the market" struggles with the same challenges, above all the lack of an affordable and dedicated travel manager system and has been long awaiting to improve its travel management, with a better, less sophisticated and free technology. LastRoom for Business offers a set of corporate control tools, such as reports, analytics and invoice reconciliation which fits perfectly to SMBs' need of better management over their travel spends .
Josue Gio, CEO and Cofounder: "The beta version of LastRoom for Business works as an hotel booking suite, however, we're already working on the integration of other services, with specific focus on flights. Precisely for this, LastRoom has recently signed a formal partnership with GDS Amadeus, a leading IT partner. Amadeus will provide us with its broad air content availability, including low-cost carriers worldwide. Its technological solutions will help us to improve the business performance of travelers."
LastRoom will exhibit in the Startup Alley during the 2nd day of the TechCrunch Conference. Vote for us at the Startup Alley, we look forward to meeting you there!
