LEADING TRAVEL MANAGEMENT FIRM IMPLEMENTS A WIDE RANGE OF ADDITIONAL tramada® PREMIER MODULES AND BEST-OF-BREED INTEGRATIONS
9 May 2018: The CT Connections Travel Group, one of the region’s fastest-growing travel management companies, has now implemented the tramada travel technology platform with a comprehensive suite of modules. The implementation is key to the organisation’s focus on the use of the industry’s most advanced technology to enhance customer service and improve consultant productivity.
A tramada Premier system client since October 2016, The CT Connections Travel Group has now gone live with a wide range of additional modules including:
- GDS App and Offline Booking Automation. Reducing manual entry and thus potential for error, these two integrations assist corporate consultants with offline bookings, thereby increasing consultant productivity while ensuring data security
- Onyx Integration, automating the collection and reconciliation of hotel commissions, ensuring commissions are collected with minimal effort
- tramada connect BI, a powerful, integrated business intelligence solution providing customised reporting, data analysis/visualisation and interactive dashboards to boost business decision making
- Credit Card Enhanced Data feeds. Direct, encrypted credit card data for those clients seeking enhanced and customised line-item descriptions on their credit card statements and card feeds, making expense claims processing easier and more reliable, particularly for business travellers
- Calypso integration, bringing non-GDS content into a more manageable booking process while adding variety to leisure travel bookings – making The CT Connections Travel Group a one-stop shop.
“tramada meets our unique needs perfectly”
“tramada provides us with extremely sophisticated functionality that improves operational efficiencies and quality control across our entire business, and provides secure and protected data management for all our clients,” said Gary Reichenberg, Founder and Director of The CT Connections Travel Group.
“Tramada Systems is the right partner for us, particularly with the additional tramada modules and best-of-breed integrations with leading providers such as Serko, Concur, American Express and Calypso,” Gary explained.
“The system, and the support we receive from the Tramada team, absolutely enables us to deliver personalised solutions to our clients while also streamlining processes, increasing data accuracy, and, importantly, improving consultant productivity. While we’ve taken on a suite of functionality from tramada, our application of these modules adds real value to our business and clients,” he said.
“Evidence of this is how, for example, tramada’s Offline Automation and GDS App drive speed and accuracy of consultants during the offline booking process. The bottom line is that our consultants can get more done, and more accurately than ever before, which gives us the bandwidth to be more attentive and proactive with our customers,” Gary said.
Susan Enners, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand of Tramada Systems, said The CT Connections Travel Group was successfully leveraging tramada technology in order to fuel its rapid growth. “The CT Connections Travel Group has quickly become one of the country’s largest independent TMCs with well over 120 staff and a substantial national presence. With the full suite of tramada’s optional modules, and the efficiencies and business insights they bring, the company’s well positioned to take their success to the next level.”
