Travel Management Company AmTrav to Adopt Journera's Rel-Time Data Platform
Through its platform, Journera creates a complete view of the traveler’s journey in real-time, enabling travel-related companies to make better travel experiences that drive increased loyalty and direct engagement with customers.
FREMONT, CA: Journera, the real-time data exchange platform for creating more seamless travel, announced that AmTrav has signed an agreement to use their platform. AmTrav, the all-in-one business travel agency committed to eliminating the hassle of corporate travel, is the first travel management company to adopt the use of the Journera platform as Journera expands beyond its base of major airline and hotel partners.
“We are pleased to be working with one of the industry’s most forward-thinking travel management companies,” said Jeffrey Katz, CEO, Journera. “AmTrav understands how powerful our real-time data including deep knowledge of the full traveler journey can be to elevating the travel experience, managing expenses for their corporate clients and improving their ‘duty of care’ capabilities.”
Journera has been developing its capabilities for the travel management vertical throughout the past year. The possibilities for TMC users of the Journera platform include:
• Improved customer service with knowledge of itinerary changes and cancellations made directly with a travel supplier.
• Better insight into trips that are booked outside of the corporate booking path and policy.
• More comprehensive duty-of-care capabilities through real-time data such as flight boarding signals and air/hotel check-in signals.
• Improved expense management through better knowledge of purchases such as baggage fees, WiFi, change fees, and upgrades made directly with an airline or hotel.
• Notice of air upgrade confirmations and waitlist notifications for improved customer communications.
“We are excited to be the first major business travel agency to bring our corporate customers the power of Journera’s platform,” said Jeff Klee, CEO, AmTrav. “We’re constantly on the look out for new ways to make life easier for travelers and their companies. Real-time data from Journera will give us an edge on anticipating customer needs and quickly reacting to them.”
The Journera platform brings together data from throughout the travel journey to open up new possibilities for travelers and travel companies to identify potential customers who are planning journeys, better anticipate their needs throughout the journey, and offer new services and experiences on the traveler’s real-time needs. The platform is also used to create touchless experiences such as automatically dispatching a rideshare based on real-time flight information to avoid crowds at the curb or automatically dispatching a room key to the hotel guest upon flight arrival to facilitate ‘contactless’ check-in at the property.
