Travel industry technology developer TTS is to work with Travelport to develop technology solutions for agents, consolidators and corporations.
A new global agreement follows the creation of Travelport Mobile Agent which gives agents mobile access to the Travelport distribution platform of flights, hotels and car hire.
The deal will enable agency customers to select from a range of products covering different aspects of agency operations, helping to improve productivity, allow for additional services and create new revenue streams, according to Travelport.
TTS products will be prominently featured in the Travelport Marketplace e-commerce store for travel solutions from Travelport and approved developers.
The agreement provides access to the entire TTS product portfolio including:
• TTS Consolidator – a solution that optimizes and simplifies the consolidation business by automating the processes between a consolidator agency (IATA) and its subagents.
• TTS Corporate –a corporate booking tool focusing on the SME market that enables travel agencies to provide corporate travellers with a cost effective B2B solution which incorporates the value of branded fares and ancillaries.
• TTS WebAgent – a solution that provides web-based GDS access for laptops and desktops.
• TTS WeBook – an internet booking engine, easy to integrate with any website or Facebook page that allows travel agencies to offer online flight booking to their customers.
