The new extranet promises to bring more efficiency into the back office of tour operators, by saving them time with their management of thousands of hotel suppliers. ‘This latest development demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our clients to provide them with tools to make their businesses more efficient,’ says CEO Kevin O’Sullivan. ‘Our technology helps them divert their staffing resources towards what really matters – growing their business.’
The enhanced functionality of the new extranet allows hoteliers more flexibility when updating contracts in Travel Studio. In addition, the tour operators using Travel Studio are provided with instant updates of all communications with hotel suppliers, guaranteeing that sales agents, XML connections and websites have real-time access to pricing, allocations, special offers and hotel content.
Other new features of the extranet include an improved user interface, enhanced language functionality and paperless billing, ensuring that tour operators and hotels have total transparency of financial information relating to customer bookings.
Travel Studio has undergone a number of functional enhancements in the past year, including an updated browser interface, an updated channel manager API, as well as integration with a large number of new third party suppliers, ranging from bed banks like JacTravel, HBSI, Bonotel and Expedia to car rental suppliers such as Avis and Amadeus Car Hire.
Open Destinations will be exhibiting at Stand T231 to demo the new extranet alongside the latest software and their new brand identity.
