Rejoice, DMCs, for automated Provider Management is here! VIPER’s new Provider Functionality gives users extensive control when managing providers for programs. With these new tools you can now manage all your providers on a per-program basis. See a list of all providers for a given program, including contact information, addresses, websites, etc. Link all your providers — including vendors and hotels — directly to any line item in a program’s costing. Track provider statuses; as you place provider holds and confirmations, you’ll be able to quickly see the variances between your client costing pricing/quantities and your confirmed provider pricing/quantities. Manage pricing and margins for every provider in a program.
DMCs know all too well how important it is to accommodate client requests and how difficult it can be remember and implement them, especially when collaborating with on a program. VIPER is taking the sting out of staying on the same page with clients and colleagues thanks to internal Notes Functionality throughout the program. If you’ve ever had multiple people involved on a program, then VIPER has the tools to make a serious impact on efficiency and accuracy for your DMC.
We know how challenging it can be for DMCs to manage contracts, billing cycles and payment schedules. It’s a time consuming process that involves a lot of cutting and pasting, cross referencing, calculators, calendars, and more elbow grease than we were willing to accept. So VIPER built the solutions to revolutionize contract, billing and payment management for DMCs.
DMC content is king. You hear it all the time, DMCs love to say it, and it’s undeniably true. But it feels like sometime people are merely talking the talk. We think it’s time to walk the walk.
The calendar is getting ready to turn yet again. The DMC world is changing, and it’s time to take stock of how DMCs can position themselves for success in the future. The hard truth is that vaults of local knowledge, wonderful supplier relationships and an outstanding destination aren’t enough to grow business by themselves. The keys to success exist in the myriad small ways DMCs differentiate themselves from the competition and continually strive to improve the way they do business, both internally and with clients.

It’s not enough to have grand ideas about change, it takes the vision to put those ideas into action and spur true progress.
