TravelEdge has officially launched Hotel EDGE, introducing a revamped redesign of the current hotel flow software.
The new software aims to streamline the booking process, while also providing more than 88,000 new vendor options for travel advisors. This platform allows for a quick rate comparison to not only ensure advisors find the best option for clients, but also to ensure they get the best commission possible.
Travel Edge’s luxury travel advisors are now armed with more provider options for hotel bookings, more competitive pricing, as well as markup opportunities to increase profitability. The Hotel EDGE network of providers allows more options outside of Sabre, welcoming Tourico, HotelBeds, and Travco.
Hotel EDGE is designed to simplify the hotel booking process from start to finish. Hotel rate commissions are guaranteed without having to chase vendors and are paid on the next billing cycle.
“Travel Edge’s ADX Hotel EDGE is going to change the game for advisors wanting more choice in how they run their travel business," said Michael Johnson, executive vice president, Travel Edge. “We believe in celebrating the craft of the luxury travel advisor and by continuing to provide world class technology combined with the best commissions in the industry – the Travel Edge Advisor is empowered to do what they love – sell travel. Hotel EDGE provides more choice for the Advisor – more choices for their business, and more choice for their clients.”
What is ADX?
Travel Edge looked at how travel agents' days were spent: They discovered 50 per cent of of an agent's day was spent logging in and out of more than 20 different systems and waiting on hold with call centres to book a single customer’s itinerary.
“ADX was a revolutionary travel booking platform created by Travel Edge in 2014 and designed specifically for the needs of the travel advisor," said Johnson. “Its promise was to make travel bookings simple, seamless and quick, leaving advisors more time to sell – Hotel EDGE continues to drive that focus and empower the travel advisor.”
