Vayant chief executive Eric Dumas said: “Customers expect more and more from their online shopping experiences. Pricing Cache gives travel sellers like Airberlin Holidays the fast up-to-date fares they need to meet and exceed customer expectations, resulting in a much improved bottom line.”
Airberlin Holidays managing director André Kollmeyer said: “Vayant were very responsive – they designed and executed a solution within 10 days of receiving our request. Thanks to Pricing Cache, today we see a significant uplift of our conversion rate by 15 to 20%.”
