NTL Business (Travel Division), the travel industry`s leading provider of integrated selling and communications solutions, announces a partnership with top travel industry solutions provider Ramesys, to offer dynamic new search functionality on Traveleye.
As a result of the agreement, agents using NTL Business (Travel Division)`s market-leading agency selling system, will, for the first time, be able to search millions of holidays using lifestyle criteria options featured on SABS, Ramesys` breakthrough web-based multi-operator holiday and charter flight search and booking engine.
Available as an option to Traveleye customers, SABS will offer new search functionality including lifestyle differentiators such as family-friendly beaches, child-care facilties and watersports. Agents will be able to apply these categories to search tour operator brochures online, and then check availability on holidays to resorts that match all criteria. SABS provides access over four million bookable holidays and flights within seconds, providing a more dynamic booking environment and further enabling Traveleye agents to match customer preferences in the quickest possible time.
Cheshire-based Ramesys becomes the latest industry provider to supply content through Traveleye, with the partnership reflecting NTL Business (Travel Division)`s policy of working with industry solutions experts to offer agents increased choice, integrated systems and new business tools.
Jill Cox, Head of Marketing, Travel and Retail at NTL Business said: “We are committed to developing Traveleye into an industry portal that provides agents with the widest possible range of reservations options and booking tools. By aggregating content in this way we believe we can offer agents a bookings environment unparalleled in the industry and the tools to close a sale in the least possible time.”
