Oakland, CA – Deem, Inc., a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the corporate travel industry, today announced its Etta corporate travel software has been honored with five top awards from MUSE Creative Awards and MUSE Design Awards, created by the International Awards Associate (IAA). The list of awards includes acknowledgements for both the Etta website and the Etta iOS mobile app:

  • Platinum: App —Diversity & Inclusion
  • Gold: App — Travel
  • Gold: App —Business
  • Gold: Website—  Covid-19-Related
  • Silver: Website— Travel

“It isn’t enough anymore to offer just a website or app for your product,” said Deem President David Grace. “They both need to have great design, offer the latest information that’s important to users, and engage more people through its user experience and accessibility features. Honors like these from MUSE help confirm our values and tell our incredible team that their work is valued and appreciated by others.”

Accessibility is part of diversity and inclusion initiatives that is often overlooked. While there are both business and legal considerations to including these features, for a traveler-centric company like Deem, offering these in the Etta platform are the right thing to do.

“When we think about the business travel community, we think first about the people. Our team talks to travelers first, and conducts extensive user testing, so we’re sure we’re creating a product that’s truly helpful for them. Winning a platinum award for these efforts is a fantastic recognition for the team and helps validate our philosophy about business travel: it should be for every body.”

— Harper Lieblich, VP of Product, Deem

Who is Etta for?
The corporate travel software Etta, powered by Deem, benefits business travelers and the companies they work for. Travelers love Etta’s intuitive interface and workflows that help them shop, book, and manage all parts of their trips including flights, hotels and car transportation. Etta meets the AA level of accessibility guidelines established by the Worldwide Web Consortium, making business travel more accommodating for travelers with disabilities and those who just appreciate controls like voice-to-text or making type sizes larger. And its personalization features remember their personal details like loyalty programs and travel preferences for them, and help them stay safe using the award-winning Travel SafetyCheck feature.

Companies of all sizes can use Etta to help control costs and provide duty of care, which is more important than ever given our current global uncertainties. Travel managers can communicate with travelers, get robust reporting, and even manage complex travel programs all from just one site. Etta streamlines and automates functions so travel managers can focus on being more productive in their role and adding more value to their company.

Deem, winner of multiple awards including an American Business Award, multiple awards from Comparably, and now these five from MUSE, is hiring in the U.S., Ireland and India. To join our expert team and inclusive, positive culture, please see our open positions on our website.
