AVaStar is a support program for venues that either want or need to provide basic audiovisual/event technology support for meetings and events primarily utilizing internal resources and equipment.
Our program provides venues with an alternative to completely outsourcing these services or “going it alone” with staff that may or may not have the proper tools and support. The foundation of the AVaStar program is a subscription-based business management portal that allows all AV/technology management activities to take place within the same environment: scheduling equipment and services for events, needs forecasting, revenue and cost tracking, service and maintenance schedules, financial and operational reporting, and inventory management all comes from one system. Use of the program also ensures that industry best practices are followed and allows our AVaStar staff to provide feedback, additional resources, and support when requested.
In addition to the SaaS portal, the program also includes AVaStar Academy with training resources for user support and basic AV service skills, CapEx planning, procurement assistance, and on-call AV operational guidance and support.

There are over 850,000 hotels worldwide that partner with online travel agents (OTAs) like booking.com and Expedia to sell rooms. Every month, these hotels are given four days to reconcile their reservation activity, and more than 80 percent have no choice but to do it manually. With today’s labor crisis, most of them don’t do it at all.
OTA Savings' patented algorithm finds all commission overcharges in less than 10 seconds, verified them, and handles disputes on behalf of the hotel. Our software also identifies all available OTA reservations that the hotel failed to charge and ensures that the hotel receives all revenue from customers who paid the OTAs directly. Complemented by a prior-year audit, our pricing model is directly tied to actual savings.
