nuTravel Powers Next Generation of Unified Video Travel Service (UVTS) by IVCi and Adelman Travel
Industry-leading online corporate booking tool provider nuTravel Technology Solutions (nuTravel) has partnered with IVCi, LLC (www.ivci.com) – a foremost provider of collaboration services and solutions – and Adelman Travel – a leading business travel management company – to power the next-generation of the aforementioned pair’s Unified Video Travel Service (UVTS).
Originally launched in the Fall of 2010, this unique service enables organizations to book video meetings as an alternative to travel from within a comprehensive online booking process; appropriating policy decisions to inform and guide corporate travelers as to cost-saving video alternatives that may be available.
When a video meeting is an option between departure and destination locales, the system notifies the user by recommending the alternative and displaying an appropriate costs-saved analysis of the would-be booking.
In this latest incarnation of the tool, nuTravel has been tasked by IVCi to deliver a new and robust teleconferencing web portal that will feed data directly into Adelman’s proprietary video conference reporting solution (the exclusive reporting tool for customers interested solely in video conferencing data). All video calls automatically calculate in real-time the road and air miles that were avoided (including CO2 analysis) as well as the cost of the actual ticket for each person that didn’t travel. This allows finance and procurement to monitor the ratios of actual cost of travel spent versus the total cost of travel avoided. Additionally, customers may opt to receive reports that integrate with the managed travel solution (nuTravel). Web-based reports will be available to the end-user 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“Working with IVCi and Adelman Travel has allowed nuTravel to further its commitment to building out innovative solutions for corporate travelers,” said Carmine Carpanzano, CEO and president of nuTravel. “We see great promise and opportunity in these companies’ collective vision and are proud to provide the foundational online booking technology and web services to deliver it to the marketplace.”
