Groupdesk is software to simplify your Group Travel business by bringing all of the working parts online.
The Frontend is where travelers make bookings and manage their trips. Here the group organizer is given tools to manage their group. The Backend is where travel planners and suppliers can manage and control their product and sales. A seamless connection from traveler to group organizer to travel planner to supplier automates the flow reducing inefficiencies along the way.
Our front-end suite puts the traveler experience first, while letting you take full control over the way your groups are marketed and managed. Mobile booking means you can capture bookings and payments instantly, anytime. The Traveler Profile was designed to help travelers easily service themselves, reducing your admin costs so you can focus on service quality over quantity.

Making changes to many records at the same time can be complicated, error-prone and time consuming. The new Bulk Jobs Queue allows you to make bulk changes, updating the records in the background and notifying you of any errors as you continue with your work.

Dayton to Daytona
We have a team of 30 that is traveling all the time. Groupdesk let’s me know the pulse of my team and how sales are going before they happen.
We have a small team that needs to be involved in everything from sales to admin to executing trips. Without Groupdesk we would need twice as many staff on the team to do the same job.
We have decades of combined experience in Group Travel and building software.
Our team has two passions that drive everything we do at Groupdesk; people getting together to see this amazing planet & building software that enhances that experience.
