“nPorta`s mission is to develop and customize travel technology applications in order to provide a complete travel website solution with online booking capability to its growing network of agencies.

“We look for nPorta to provide our customers a functionality and ease of use comparable with any booking engine available online. With nPorta, we expect to significantly increase our online retail airline ticket purchases,” states Bob Bender, co-owner of Springdale Travel.

Distinctive to TravelASP
is its ability to be customized and allow for an “unbundling” of features and modules to provide its clients and partners with choices that will best meet their needs, budget and online initiatives. Applications and features available in addition to the consumer booking engine are its Corporate module with PolicyBuilder, secure rate and sub- agent module as well as site administration tools to facilitate posting and editing of content and graphics, database management, sending emails, as well as monitoring site usage and bookings.

“nPorta`s TravelASP product launch was very timely. Currently undergoing our own website re-design initiatives, nPorta customized its booking engine and integrated it in time for the launch of our new website. Not only do we have a new look, but an enhanced content offering and interactivity with real- time booking capability, which is going to be crucial to increase our revenues and market share in our competitive industry,” commented Mike Davidson, General Manager of Hess Travel.
