AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GoldSpring Consulting, a leader in business travel and meetings consultancy, announced today it is enhancing its service line with a new Technology Consulting offering. Travel technologist, Charlie Mitchell, is joining GoldSpring as technology solutions consultant and will focus on helping GoldSpring clients untangle and assess the myriad of technology options available to today’s travel buyers.
“Charlie has the necessary expertise and the creative insight to provide clients with the right solutions and tech opportunities, making him a go-to resource for travel technology,” said Neil Hammond, partner, GoldSpring Consulting. “He has a unique way of seeing not only strategically where a client needs to go, but also what needs to happen at the engineering level, building out the right combination of technology solutions to help them get there.”
Hammond said the complexities surrounding travel technology and the sheer volume of options available make it difficult to assess solutions, design the right strategies and make informed buying decisions. Buyers are looking for help in understanding what’s available, reliable, and scalable as well as what works with unique program parameters. TMC technology layers can also be difficult for buyers to navigate.
“We have detected a clear need in the marketplace to address technology challenges which Charlie will be able to fulfill on a standalone basis as well as integrated into our TMC sourcing services,” said Hammond.
