WESTON, FL – June 13, 2018 – Monaker Group (NASDAQ: MKGI), a travel and technology company focused on the alternative lodging rental (ALR) market, has launched a collaborative marketing initiative with Recruiter.com to promote NextTrip.BIZ, Monaker’s corporate travel solution for small to medium businesses (SMBs).
As a leading online global recruiting service and job market technology platform, Recruiter.com has become a trusted brand to thousands of companies and maintains a highly engaged membership base. Through its numerous opt-in social media channels, Recruiter.com has gained more than 10 million followers, many of whom are SMB owners, chief executive officers, chief financial officers, and other C-level decision makers.
“Monaker Group has developed a powerful travel technology platform capable of searching an incredible array of travel suppliers and products while also simplifying travel expense reporting and tracking,” said Recruiter.com CEO Michael Woloshin. “Our clients and followers represent perfect prospects for NextTrip.BIZ. We’re excited to offer such a valuable program, and Recruiter.com will benefit greatly from the savings and convenience as one of the new users of the system.”
NextTrip.BIZ can reduce overall business travel costs by as much as 30 percent, with additional operational cost savings delivered through easier and more efficient employee travel management. The platform also enables businesses to incentivize their employees with turn-key travel rewards programs.
The platform provides comprehensive travel management services and aggregates travel offerings based on more than 350 leading global distribution systems and supplier agreements. This results in substantial savings delivered through a single easy-to-use booking and reporting system.
“By partnering with Recruiter.com, a global brand trusted and relied upon by thousands of executives and businesses around the world, Monaker has a unique opportunity to offer SMBs major travel savings and management capabilities previously only available to large enterprises,” said Bill Kerby, CEO of Monaker Group. “Businesses can sign up today and take immediate advantage of this unique corporate travel solution.”
SMBs can create customizable co-branded websites that give employees secure access to exclusive discounted pricing across air, car, hotel, and other ancillary travel services. The new platform will also feature Monaker’s ALR inventory customized for business travellers. ALR is presently at the early stages of adoption by the business community but is increasingly sought as a cost-saving solution for business and convention travel. ALR inventory will be made available on the SMB platform with the release of the second-generation API, which will integrate the Monaker Booking Engine. The new API will allow dynamic packaging of ALR properties with air, car, and other travel activities.
