GlobalStar partners with M&E management specialist

GlobalStar Travel Management has signed a global partnership with Qondor to give its partners access to an end-to-end project management platform tailored specifically for M&E professionals.

It means GlobalStar TMC partners can perform their job in one, single, user-friendly platform supporting the entire workflow – event request, budget, proposal, contract, registration, invoicing, reconciliation and reporting – while providing full financial visibility throughout the event life cycle.

Julian Russell, Executive Director IT and Supplier Relations at GlobalStar, said Qondor delivers a platform that will “help our TMC Partners to centrally manage and control the many disparate components that make up a typical meeting request from start to end”.

Nils Olav Rislå, Qondor Chief Operating Officer & Co-founder, added: “Meetings & Events (M&E) is one of the more profitable and rapidly growing lines of business within travel. However, many agencies do not have a solid platform in which to build and grow their M&E business.

“In our experience we see that M&E needs are frequently deprioritised in favour of corporate travel, often leading to inefficient processes and lack of overview, particularly in the processes of budgeting, proposals, confirmations, invoicing and reconciliations. We are therefore excited to showcase to GlobalStar Partners how Qondor can help them deliver high-quality M&E services with efficiency and control.”

GlobalStar operates in more than 2,500 locations in over 55 countries.
