Navigating data complexity and simplifying the way travel partners, agencies, and travelers connect.
As a modern travel retailing platform provider, Travelport needs to work with airlines, rail companies, hotels, rental car companies, travel agencies, and other players in the travel industry. With that broad reach comes the complexity of managing all the relationships and huge amounts of data collected from multiple sources, including applications, databases, and spreadsheets .
Travelport was relying on processes that were siloed, cumbersome, time-consuming, and prone to error. For instance, to create account development plans, business leaders at Travelport were using overly complex processes. Incentives for its sales employees were calculated using data from multiple sources. And since all this involved aggregation of data from various parts of the business, it increased the risk of errors, rework, and disputes.
The result? High maintenance costs of systems and applications, longer time to resolve disputes and other issues, and sub-optimal employee and customer experiences.
Travelport wanted to transform its sales operations and set itself up for future growth. It decided to build a platform that would empower travel agencies to deliver a modern retailing experience and help suppliers such as airlines and rail companies to sell more and extend their global reach.
