United Airlines on its website has been offering low, refundable fares to compete against rival carriers. If you know where to look, you can find them in global distribution systems, too. The only way to access "economy flexible" fares in a GDS is by using a special code in the "passenger type" field. That means typical low-fare searches don't turn up the fares and corporate online booking tools generally don't have them.
Radius Travel this week announced that CorpTrav joined its ranks. The announcement comes just as Short’s Travel Management also became part of the agency network. Based in the midwestern United States, the two travel management companies add to nine pre-existing U.S. Radius members. The largest is Travel and Transport, based in Omaha, Neb. Headquartered in Waterloo, Iowa, Short’s plays in the sports and university sectors, as well as corporate and government. It previously had been an HRG affiliate.
You probably won't find "auditing expense reports" on a list of tasks humans are sorry to see go to bots. Sensing an opportunity in this back end, five-year-old AppZen in early 2016 shifted from the crowded expense software market to auditing. It's no longer selling a mobile expense app that some big corporate clients like. Expense systems including those from Certify, Chrome River, Concur and Databasics can match receipts and flag suspicious expense items using customizable rules.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
