MINNEAPOLIS (July 19, 2012) —InterplX, the number two independent provider of expense management and purchase card transaction processing software, has hired travel industry sales professional Amber Eustice to lead channel recruitment and management process of its recently launched partner program for travel management companies. The ExpenseNet® TMC Advantage program is designed to help travel management companies (TMCs) and their corporate clients gain increased visibility on travel spend, control over compliance and, for the agency, enhanced transaction and service revenues; all without adding any additional burden on the traveler.
“Travel budgets are always under pressure and with the proliferation of Internet-based booking sites and enhanced affinity programs, Travel Management Companies and their corporate clients continue to look for solutions that can deliver real cost savings and improved spending visibility,” said George Roscoe, Director of Marketing for InterplX. “Through Amber’s extensive background in travel industry sales and the tools available through the TMC Advantage program, she’ll be able to help our TMC partners leverage a client’s entire spend along with reining in users who book outside of policy.”
In her role at InterplX, Eustice’s immediate focus is launching the program and recruiting TMC partners. Following the roll-out, Eustice’s primary responsibility will be working with the TMC partners to offer ExpenseNet®—InterplX’s SaaS base expense automation solution—and leverage the solution to increase adoption, and to enhance the value of the TMC to their mutual clients.
With insight gained from her various roles within Carlson Hotels, Eustice brings to InterplX a unique perspective on corporate travel management. In her most recent role as Manager, Corporate Sales at Carlson Hotels, Eustice was responsible for new account development as well as managing several Fortune 1000 accounts for Country Inns & Suites by Carlson and Park Inn Brands, as well as all global Carlson properties.
Eustice began her career at Carlson as a Director of Sales for Country Inn & Suites By Carlson in Rochester, Minn. She was promoted to Manager, Local Sales for Carlson Hotels in 2008 where she directed the sales efforts for several Country Inns & Suites by Carlson properties throughout the Minneapolis area. She is a member of the North Central Business Travel Association.
