WTM 2017: Jactravel to unveil new in-house booking platform

B2B accommodation wholesaler JacTravel is claiming reduced search response times and increased search capacity with a new booking platform.

The project has seen the company acquire and bring in-house source code as well as recruiting a specialist and dedicated team of developers, testers and business analysts.

The company is piloting the new software with a number of clients with a planned full introduction early next year.

An unspecified “significant investment” has been made in the technology.

Chief technology officer Francesco De Marchis said: “Our aims with this project were to move from two trading platforms to one, single search and book environment, providing our partners with a seamless integration whilst operating a business as normal approach.

“The philosophy was to retain all the best elements of our existing platforms whilst improving performance and creating a scalable structure to facilitate our growth ambitions over the coming years.”

Chief executive Peter Clements added: “Our clients will be able to enjoy sub-second responses and the ability to take more product from us and our supply partners will naturally see the benefits from increased distribution levels and enhanced search to book conversion levels.”
