Combined Travel

The travel world is still a bit foreign to me but with Hipmunk showing up everywhere marketing to SMB this question keeps coming up.

Why can't similar businesses combine/pool their travel needs to get better bulk discounts? I've worked at large companies until my current one and the negotiating power when your spend is under a million is almost nonexistent. I bet companies would be willing play by group rules if it meant sharing resources and huge savings.
