Barrington, IL, United States, 2009/08/17 - Trondent Development Corp., a leading provider of web-based software applications and data management services to the global meetings and travel industry, today announced the release of GroupFARE Analyzer, a browser-based destination costing analysis tool.
GroupFARE Analyzer enables meeting and event professionals to quickly and cost-effectively produce airfare analysis reports for informed decision making on the most cost effective meeting destinations.
Users build a query by inserting origin and destination markets, date ranges and the number of travelers departing from each city. Each query may contain a maximum of 50 origins and 5 destinations. Based on this set of criteria, GroupFARE Analyzer robotically conducts GDS airfare calls, thereby collecting public and private tariffs associated with multiple airfare categories. Within minutes, a weighted average airfare report is produced in either a PDF or XLS file format that identifies the most cost effective destinations to host a meeting.
"Meeting and event professionals are constantly looking for simple, quick and cost-effective ways to automate tasks associated with the planning and budgeting of group travel," says David Wood, Trondent's President & CEO. "GroupFARE Analyzer is a tool that will certainly meet that need by automating a traditionally manual and labor intensive process, delivering actionable data within minutes. In addition to this product release, we also have a number of new enhancements planned for GroupASSIST, our arrival and departure manifest reporting tool. These two initiatives demonstrate Trondent's commitment to continue providing relevant solutions to the strategic meeting management sector", continued Wood.
GroupFARE Analyzer, currently only available to Sabre subscribers, will eventually support Abacus, Amadeus, Apollo, Galileo and Worldspan.
