CheckMate has formed partnerships with several travel management companies. CheckMate’s award-winning platform is now available to corporate and leisure travelers through direct relationships with Adelman, AmTrav, Christopherson Business Travel, Travel Incorporated and Travel and Transport. Three of the 10 largest travel agencies are already using CheckMate technology, and many other top 50 travel agencies are following suit. Additionally, CheckMate has been selected for Virtuoso Network’s Incubator Program.
TMCs can now offer round-the-clock VIP service to their travelers by facilitating more efficient, personalized communication with their hotel via a mobile device. TMCs and corporate travel departments can join the CheckMate platform for free through the end of 2015.
Among the most popular requests is the customizable, two-way communication via a mobile device that the CheckMate platform seamlessly provides. Most popular use cases cited by travel managers include text trip details to traveler prior to check-in; text the hotel once the plane lands and receive updates on transportation arrival time; text or push notifications to provide room status, room number, and room-ready time; and text to book or request typical hotel services such as room service, spa appointments and housekeeping.
CheckMate’s technology enables TMCs to differentiate their offerings by providing all of the aforementioned pre-stay and in-stay mobile services to clients. In addition, CheckMate partner hotels offer an express check-in experience, eliminating the wait at the front desk. CheckMate’s hotel communications platform is a white-label service for TMCs, corporate travel managers, hotel distributors and travel software companies.
