StarCite, Inc., the leading provider of Web-based solutions to strategically manage corporate meetings and events, today announced a new solution focused on the unique needs of mid-sized meetings management companies (MMCs) and travel management companies (TMCs) and their clients.

StarCite Select offers a streamlined version of the StarCite meetings management platform, created for MMCs and TMCs that manage a smaller volume of meetings with different functionality requirements than their larger competitors. Mid-sized MMCs and TMCs will now be able to fast track the meetings planning and booking process using StarCite’s powerful and well-established technology for eRFP development, sourcing, registration, attendee management and reporting. As a result, MMCs and TMCs will be able to help their clients reduce costs, allocate their meetings budgets more efficiently and deliver better, more effective meetings overall.

“The mid-sized MMC/TMC sector has been underserved for too long,” said Linda J. McNairy, VP Strategic Partner Management, StarCite. “These companies and their clients will now be able to benefit from the same innovative technology that larger companies enjoy, but focused on the features and functionality that matter most for this segment and priced in a way that fits the mid-sized market’s specialized needs and business processes.”

StarCite Select is enabled by StarCite’s groundbreaking Nexus cloud-based technology platform, making it extremely easy to configure, navigate, update, and scale to meet MMC/TMCs’ changing needs. Other key features of StarCite Select include unlimited user accounts, 24/7 customer support, and unique website branding for each individual MMC/TMC.
