DURHAM, N.C. – Switch Four today announced the launch of its first product, WorkTrip, an event planning tool that provides an easier, more organized and efficient way for busy corporate event and meeting planners to maximize event communication and minimize travel risk.
With WorkTrip, event and meeting planners keep track of everything in a single tool, including events, people, travel and schedules. The tool stores all of their event details, updates them in real time and instantly communicates to everyone who needs them. Real time notifications inform event attendees of information and any risks for their travel destination. Designed to solve common business trip issues, WorkTrip lets event planners be more productive by giving everyone everything they need at their fingertips, exactly when they need it.
Event and meeting planners need efficient and organized tools to help them produce successful event experiences. Managing the execution of an event is just one part of the job. Making sure that everyone attending the event has everything they need is another. Often times, separate systems are used to book travel for events, provide travel details to the organizer and email to relay event details and relevant documents, resulting in scattered information. Emails with important information get buried in inboxes and then event planners are constantly answering questions about the event that have already been answered, wasting so much of their valuable time.
“For years, I was part of an events team that handled well over 100 events a year and I know firsthand, the pains associated with planning, executing and traveling to corporate events,” said Heather Haigler, co-founder of Switch Four. “I envisioned a solution that could integrate disparate systems and be a centralized place where planners could upload information that was accessible to everyone on their mobile device. I’m incredibly excited to say that this dream has become a reality and we really are making business travel easier.”
WorkTrip was created to lessen the pains associated with planning, executing and traveling to corporate events and Switch Four has already proven that it is a worthy and attainable mission. Within the first six months of the limited release period, 100 percent of the company’s pilot program participants have already signed on as customers.
And, most importantly, WorkTrip is saving their customers time, enabling them to be more productive and making their jobs easier:
- “Because I’m able to email the entire group through WorkTrip at once, it saves me an extraordinary amount of time,” said Samantha Nelson, Corporate Event Planner, Carboline Company.
- “It’s a one stop shop – everything is in one place,” said Samantha Heckman, Marketing Manager at Accuform. “During busy weeks, WorkTrip saves me multiple hours of work.”
- “Everything about WorkTrip makes my reps lives easier, which in turn makes my job easier,” said Keri Steinmetz, Marketing & Tradeshow Coordinator, Trinity3 Technology.
