Having gained Cisco as its new Presidentâ€™s Circle Sponsor, the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) is hoping to leverage Cisco calling, meeting and video technology to transform how it operates, trains and runs events.
Through the sponsorship, Cisco collaboration technologies such as WebEx Event Center are expected to play a more strategic role in ACTEâ€™s virtual events to provide members and non-members the tools and capabilities to enhance their education, with lesser constraints of physical location, time zone and traditional organisational boundaries.
ACTE will use Ciscoâ€™s collaboration products to power upcoming webinars, including the 2018 Corporate Travel Industry Forecast today; Virtual Card Strategy: The Value Chain on September 27; How to Give a Great Virtual Presentation (And Why This Matters in Corporate Travel) on October 2; Simplifying Managed Travel on October 18; and Taking Control of Your Hotel Spend on October 31.
According to ACTE, virtual collaboration tools are key at a time when one training a year is no longer enough to help corporate travel professions stay up-to-date with the latest information, pointing to rapid geopolitical changes, economic pressure and human resource challenges.
ACTE will also use Cisco technologies such as Cisco Spark internally to streamline their communication process in-house to lessen the amount of emails sent daily.
The ACTE membership will be introduced to further technology information at the London Aviation and Corporate Summit October 11-13.
