Laterooms launch corporate service, one of the UK's leading accommodation websites, today launches a free specialist service for all companies who want to save money booking business accommodation.

Reed Recruitment, City Refrigeration Holdings and Logistik are the first companies to take advantage of LateRooms' 'Bespoke Solutions'.

As part of the service will create a customised microsite tailored to the look and feel of the existing company website enabling employees to search and book accommodation within a set budget - meaning that booking accommodation over-budget isn't possible, even if employees tried to come to direct.

Corporate customers will also have the unique advantage of using geo-coding, enabling specific office locations/retail outlets to be plotted on their personalised Google(tm) map. Users can search using a set location as the centre-point of their search radius, saving even more time thanks to LateRooms' 'Bespoke Solutions'.
