SAN FRANCISCO, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LiquidSpace, the leading online marketplace for finding and booking office and meeting space, today announced the launch of LiquidSpace Travel Manager. This new product provides a simple, convenient solution for corporate administrators, travel and meeting managers to make booking workspace as easy as booking a hotel room or flight.
"We are reinventing the meeting room reservation process for companies and their mobile workers," said Doug Marinaro, president and COO of LiquidSpace. "Thousands of business professionals already use LiquidSpace individually to find and book on-demand, cost-effective meeting space in real-time. Now, with Travel Manager we are providing an efficient way to help companies integrate LiquidSpace into their travel and meeting programs with centralized control, visibility and customization options."
LiquidSpace offers more than 5,000 vetted workspaces in more than 500 cities in the US and Australia. Workspace venues include over 30 hotel brands, as well as coworking communities, and premier office business centers. Space can be booked through the intuitive LiquidSpace website or mobile app. Meeting organizers can book for themselves, or on behalf of others, by simply entering the location, date and time of their meeting then choosing an available space that matches their criteria. Pictures, ratings, amenities and pricing information help organizers book space with confidence. Reservations are completed quickly with a credit card. There are no contracts, no RFPs, and no hassles.
LiquidSpace Travel Manager offers additional features designed to meet the needs of corporate administrators, travel and meeting managers. A secure, dedicated web portal provides a streamlined and easy way for employees to book meeting spaces. The portal can be easily customized to guide employees to preferred venues, share special discount arrangements and allow the travel department to make or modify reservations on behalf of employees. Reporting capabilities give meeting organizers visibility and control of meeting budgets, policies and employee experiences as well as organize usage and expense reports by department. Travel Manager also allows companies to set up centralized billing or opt to have employees pay with their own credit cards.
"Work has morphed and so has the workplace. Ubiquitous connectivity, portable computing and the cloud have spawned powerful change masters – mobility and choice", said Mark Gilbreath, founder and CEO of LiquidSpace. "Mobile services like LiquidSpace provide consumers with choice and delightfully simple end-to-end experiences. Companies are now adopting these services across their organizations to drive savings and productivity. We are supporting the workspace needs of large and small companies with our growing portfolio of Enterprise Solutions, which now includes LiquidSpace Travel Manager."
