Faster Access to Cheaper Fares Makes the Datalex Net Fares Solution a Winner with Agents

Reducing the cost of sale, eliminating the risk of Agent Debit Memos and realizing more value per customer are just some of the returns on investment that agents can hope to achieve with the latest version of BookIt! FARES, the net fares booking and management system developed by travel technology solutions provider, Datalex.

One of the most advanced net fares booking engines on the market today, BookIt! FARES 2.3 now offers more complex pricing logic for checking higher intermediate fares, open jaws, double open jaws and complex stopover routings. Mixing fare classes and/or carriers on multi-sector routes is another major feature, which has set this product in a class of its own in the field of travel booking technology.
“We have worked in association with some of the top travel suppliers in the country to be able to develop BookIt! FARES to the level of sophistication that this latest version is offering,” said Mike Naylor, Air Solutions Manager, Datalex
. “Our goal is to give clients every competitive advantage by enabling them to offer the widest range of fares from their airline deals. Reducing the time it takes for agents to deal with flight queries, especially the more complex long-haul itineraries, gains customer confidence and offers more freedom to cross-sell and up-sell other products to the customer.”

Deployed by a number of the UK`s leading travel suppliers across call centre, retail and direct sell channels, the system provides a complete enquiry and booking facility for net fares which can be combined with scheduled fares on the same screen with a choice of graphical user interface or Web browser access.

The new 2.3 version of BookIt! FARES also includes Fare Loader, a more sophisticated fares loading system for loading and maintaining fare contracts, with easier viewing of stored contracts, faster response times and more detailed search facilities to find specific fares. An automated fare feed system downloads British Airways` net fares electronically into the database. An electronic import facility is also available for charter fares.
