Corporate Self Booking Tool

TravelCarma Travel API Management Software

TravelCarma's corporate solution allows TMCs to provide their customers with an online self booking tool for their travel needs. It is an end-to-end solution covering all the stages of corporate bookings, right from the employee making a request for travel and getting it authorized by the Travel Desk to the actual booking and managing of itineraries.

It brings in efficiency and helps both the agency and the corporate working with the agency to reduce costs in terms of time and money.

TravelCarma Corporate Solution is designed using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This makes it modular in nature so it is truly scalable and can also easily be modified as per client's specific requirements. If the client needs additional or new functionalities the same can be easily accommodated. At the same time the solution is flexible to enable changes in the UI too as per the needs and requirement of the customer.

We provide a single group level booking management and call center platform for managing bookings for Down-line corporates, Sub-agents and B2C customers. This is over and above individual portal and agency/corporate level booking management platforms. This has the following benefits:

  • Ease of training people
  • Reduced code and software maintenance as it's a single application
  • Ease of self generating group level reporting
  • Central database for booking and customers allows for big data analysis for greater cost savings and revenue management
  • Lower cost of operations

Solution Highlights

Corporate Setup
Employee Policy Management
  • Our corporate tool is policy and role-based whereby the corporate administrator can create different corporate employees and give them rights of booking as well as set specific limits in terms of allowed price for a Travel component or the category of travel products (Like Star Rated Hotel or Carrier Class while traveling)
  • The corporate administrator can provide rights to employees based on which system would decide which information should be visible to a corporate traveler and whether they have rights to make bookings with specified price
  • Our system's architecture makes it easy for TMCs to integrate third-party systems like SAP or Salesforce into the platform and also provides the ability to integrate existing legacy solutions to the platform
  • This separation of presentation layer and the engine makes the UX highly customizable and reduces time to deployment. It also makes solution flexible to build new UI using presentation services
  • A unified central administrative system allows for centralized control and management of different aspects of the business reduces training efforts and minimizes code maintenance
  • Creation of multiple portals (B2C, B2B or Corporate) on the same backbone using the central admin console. This allows detailed data analysis across business lines and to fine tune revenues at the global or agency/portal level
