nuTravel Focuses on Supplying Booking Technology to Innovators
Purchase, New York – July 17, 2016 – nuTravel, provider of the corporate travel industry’s most reliable and flexible booking solutions, today announced several projects undertaken by customers that have utilized nuTravel booking technology outside of their flagship enterprise online booking tool to build solutions that increase market share and product differentiation.
“At nuTravel, we are booking technology experts above all else,” said Rich Miller, General Manager of nuTravel’s Corporate Solutions business unit. “Although we offer our own online booking tool, we are constantly evaluating new ways to leverage our booking technology to provide value and solutions to the industry. That mindset has allowed us to realize we can be the ‘booking engine’ behind the innovative solutions of our progressive customers and partners.”
A recent example of this approach at work is with Sam, FCM’s newly released, friendly, travel-intelligent mobile app “chatbot” that combines cutting edge technology with the expertise of an FCM consultant. nuTravel currently powers the hotel booking component with air and car booking planned for later this year.
John Morhous, Chief Strategy Officer for Flight Centre USA Corporate Brands said, “Once we discussed our plans for Sam and how we wanted to provide an innovative experience to travelers, nuTravel was quick to offer suggestions on how they could help. The nuTravel team was flexible and very responsive; the timeframe from preliminary discussions to fully implemented booking functionality was only a few weeks.”
Other companies in the corporate travel space have also benefitted from nuTravel’s willingness to provide booking technology apart from its OBT. Groupe Encore, a premier Canadian travel management company, utilizes nuTravel for booking air, car, and hotel through its Trace customer portal. Mantic Point, the UK-based itinerary management app provider, is integrating nuTravel mobile booking technology into its offering. Hotel bookings are planned for August with air and car to follow later this year for its many North American Customers such as Executive Travel, Direct Travel and Groupe Encore Travel.
nuTravel delivers the corporate travel industry’s fastest, most flexible booking technology solutions available today. Successfully pairing industry expertise with the right technology, nuTravel’s diverse portfolio of online travel solutions provide a robust and intuitive selection of travel content to users while delivering a smooth integration into travel management companies and corporations of any size.
