Our client is among one of the well-known Travel Agencies that focuses primarily on the sale of flight bookings in the North American markets.
Despite having access to travel technology in the market, travel businesses continue to strive in order to showcase their flight bookings and other travel products online. For travel businesses that made the switch to taking their travel brand online, the stress-point eventually shifts from entering the online world of e-commerce to focusing more on optimizing the speed and efficiency of their technology platforms. To be successful as a travel agency, creating a seamless experience for customers and keeping them cued into their travel schedules, is of utmost importance.
The client was on the look-out for an efficient online flight booking engine to launch their brand online and optimize day-to-day agency operations, specifically with respect to revenue management.
