AirPlus International and Tramada further optimise business travel

Sydney, 13 November 2018 — Leading corporate travel payments provider AirPlus International has partnered with travel management system provider Tramada Systems to offer more convenience for travel agencies and better quality service for corporates.

Tramada’s mission is to automate travel workflows to increase agents’ productivity and optimise solutions and integration with the entire travel ecosystem. Tramada provides plug-and-play modules that reduce manual handling and ensure seamless feeds between applications.

With the most recent release of the tramada® technology platform, corporate travel agencies are now able to capture better quality data for AirPlus customers, improving the management of their travel programs.

The tramada AirPlus File Export now offers 10 variable data fields to AirPlus customers, giving them unmatched capability to capture the data a company needs for expense management. Companies benefit from configurable data fields as they are able to capture specific information for each transaction that assists to identify and code it for accounts payable and the general ledger. This includes project and matter numbers, cost centres and authorisation codes. Companies now have full flexibility on the data they require their TMC to capture in order to simplify their reconciliation process.

Setting up customers with the appropriate data is also made easier for the travel agency, rendering a streamlined collection of data. The agent will now be able to flexibly select the field configuration based on each client’s requirements.

David Newington, Commercial Director APAC for AirPlus International said: “Variable fields were an important factor in the enhancement of the booking process from the travel agency side and we are delighted to have solved this with tramada. This is a great news for our customers and partner travel agencies in Australia and New Zealand.”

Susan Enners, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand of Tramada Systems, said: “Our agencies’ corporate clients have ever-increasing data requirements when it comes to expense management. We are delighted to partner with AirPlus to deliver additional enhanced data fields to meet and exceed those customer requirements. Furthermore, it reaffirms our commitment to integrating with world-class technologies that streamline processes, saving agents time and money.”
