Tramada and BookingBuilder launch global partnership
New integrations streamlines the search process for even more air and rail segments
March 14, 2018 – tramada travel agents using BookingBuilder Desktop™ can now find and book air and rail segments from web-based sources that supplement GDS content – quickly and securely for convenient upload into tramada.
When a tramada agent searches for air options, the BookingBuilder™ module advises whether any carriers not available via GDS operate that route. The agent can then compare both GDS and web-based fares.
tramada agents using GDS Profiles module will also benefit from additional automation. If they choose a fare found by BookingBuilder, the agent can quickly complete the booking with pre-populated information from their traveler’s profile. This eliminates the need for re-typing critical information. Data for accounting and client management is also captured within the tramada technology platform, including a fully documented segment.
The result is greatly improved workflow efficiency for agents while maintaining up-to-date itineraries for travelers.
An end to the web booking headache
“As more and more web content becomes available in the marketplace, booking fares directly with those organizations through their websites is tedious, adding time and complexity to agency workflows,” says Mary Ellen George, Head of North America for Tramada Systems.
“This integration with BookingBuilder solves that problem by enabling tramada agents to search for and book both GDS and web fares quickly and efficiently.”
Sarana Donaldson, Vice President, Sales & Marketing of BookingBuilder Technologies, adds, “We are delighted to work with Tramada Systems to provide their agents with instant, integrated access to content from air and rail web sites, and to put an end to the web booking headache.”
