Cornerstone™ Information Systems Showcases the Future of Predictive Intelligence to Manage The Traveler’s Journey at Phocuswright Conference

Mat Orrego to present game-changing new 4site™  proactive journey management tool at Los Angeles event

BLOOMINGTON, IN (November 8, 2016)  – Cornerstone Information Systems (CIS), a global leader in innovative technology solutions for travel companies, today announced that they are among an elite group of visionary companies selected to battle it out at the 2016 Phocuswright Conference. Mat Orrego, the company’s CEO, will take center stage at The Travel Innovation Summit Launch to present the new 4site™ predictive intelligence technology to industry leaders on  Wednesday, November 16 at 10:45 am.

Each year, only the most forward thinkers make it into the Phocuswright Innovation Platform to vie for a variety of prestigious awards. The categories of competition consist of three distinct segments; Battleground, Summit, and Launch. Cornerstone will compete in the Launch category, which provides established companies the opportunity to unveil a groundbreaking innovation that is changing the travel landscape. Winners are named by a panel of judges comprised of high-caliber travel and technology experts.

Long recognized as a travel technology pioneer, Cornerstone will be showcasing their latest breakthrough solution which drives proactive journey management for companies and TMCs with predictive analysis and real-time chat. “There are plenty of apps out there – and some are really cool – but not a single one actually solves the problems we experience every single day around disruptions, changes in our plans, and unexpected events,” explains Mat. “We have spent the last year sharpening our focus and building an open, flexible platform that monitors trips with predictive intelligence. 4site is breaking new ground by bridging the information gap between the live trip and what the agent sees in a reservation to drive continued service.”

4site is a rich, intuitive tool that provides timely, relevant 360-degree monitoring based on customized preferences set by the TMC or corporation, and proposes actionable, details on steps to take at every touch point. The unique 4site mobile app can be custom branded or implemented directly within existing apps and gives travelers a way to stay informed and connected in real time with their travel advisor.

Mat adds, “In today’s fast-changing world, predictive intelligence can help TMCs and corporate travel teams manage what is most likely to happen before it happens. It is about prioritizing the trips to work based on criteria like specific airports, critical routes, and VIP travelers. We have developed a real game-changer and are excited to share it the industry’s most influential thought at Phocuswright.”

Founded in 1993, the annual Phocuswright Conference has evolved into one of the most important informational and networking events for the travel sector, a marketplace in which Phocuswright estimates that global spending will increase to $1.4 trillion this year from $1.3 trillion two years ago. Around 1,800 people are expected to attend the event being held in Los Angeles, which will run from Nov. 14 to 17.

Cornerstone would like to extend a special invitation to conference attendees to attend the Launch competition or visit booth ### for a personal demo. To learn more about Cornerstone Information Systems visit https://www.ciswired.com or call 1 (888) 778-0897.
