Groupize, the event management technology company, has launched Groupize Next, the latest version of its product. The company said Groupize Next has been in development for over a year and represents the largest investment in a redesign in the organization’s history. Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien, CEO, said the redesign was aimed at “creating the most comprehensive, relevant and easy to use solution on the market.” She said that moving toward a post-pandemic world, the redesign was focused on enhancing self-service capabilities, simplicity and addressing emerging industry demands like hybrid meetings and car rental management. The enterprise-wide online platform enables professional and casual planners to get their jobs done and collaborate. All members and departments within an organization have access to the centralized tools they need to manage sourcing, registration, travel, duty of care, workflows and spend. This latest version empowers management with visibility and insights to make critical decisions around budgets, risk mitigation and safety. Groupize Next, according to an announcement, delivers next-level usability and features, including new design UI/UX and mobile responsive for planners; hybrid meetings; guided user experiences for planners; car rental module for increased drive vs. air travel; coordinator-led workflow for projects; new user permissions; new attendee type functionality; mobile responsive back-end; and approvals.
