A very cost efﬁcient sales channel that communicates both directly via the web and through the GDSs
PASSENGER AND CONTACT INFORMATION
TommyRes can handle complex customer information, like relationships, groups, travel managers, users, consolidated records where certain people can view more than their own bookings.
We’re also flexible and can include information like location codes, project numbers and employment codes for easy invoicing and cost control. Private fares are always shown automatically so corporate users or agents can always see their fare without the hassle to think of different rules and so forth.
Our normal booking process is kept to a minimum of graphics and non-necessary information, as we want to keep the process as simple as possible – even enabling smartphone users to book online with their minimal screen.
Profiles handle contact information, roles and extended properties for all users to enable/disable functions in the system or restrict access.
VOUCHERS/GIFT CERTIFICATES/TOP UP ACCOUNTS
This is a complex system that can be used for everything from giveaway tickets at trade shows to selling gift certificates with pre-printed designs. Vouchers may be issued for a value, EUR 50, or a certain number of trips. A booking can be paid in part with a voucher and remaining value can be saved for future bookings.
E-PASSES/PUNCH CARD, SERIAL TICKETS, ANNUAL PASSE
Buy 10 trips and receive 11. Buy an annual pass for a whole year that allows you to easily book your trips and gives the airline funds up front.
All fields of interest can be made searchable in order to retrieve a booking where the pax has forgotten the booking reference or which date/flight he’s on. Additionally your last 20 bookings are shown for quick access if something needs later attention. The yellow box is an alert system to inform agents of urgent matters in real time.
There’s also a task management system that automatically redirects tasks to colleagues and reminds of forgotten issues.
BOOKING TRANSACTIONS LOG
Who did what and when? Have you heard customers complaining of changes not made, flights booked wrong date? Well here’s a one-stop shop to prove what has happened.
Special/private fares can be assigned to one or a group of users (using a contract) and can be made available for any currency. Fares can be absolute values (€45), discounts (50%) or relative (€-10). Special fares are connected to allotments and allotments are controlled by time limiters to open for general booking if not used at a certain time before STD.
TAXES AND EXTRA CHARGES
We currently handle 3 taxes as well as VAT added or being a part of the fares. These taxes may or may not show up to the user. Agents can add their own service charges (like call center fees). The product system also allows for additional products to be sold with the booking as well as name change fees, changing fees, x number of changes free and so forth.
Excess baggage is easy to handle and can be pre-ordered with the booking or added by the handling agent – the charges goes on the booking and is charged by the airlines systems directly making accounting easy and giving the customer an updated consolidated receipt of all the costs on one single paper. Our DCS is totally integrated into the reservation system.
Reporting tools are real time reports with customizable filtering and at a glance reports for sales by minute, flight loads and yield functions.
These reports split down sales for any given user to show sales/taken money/funds per payment method
We can connect to your ERP software in different ways; either an API to direct connect or transfer booking by booking in detail, or use the consolidated transactions day by day.
IMPORT OF SSM FILES
Timetable files can be imported and will create all flights ready for booking directly. The flights are created from templates with templates for number of seats per class as well as all fares per class. The template holds information like handling agents, time zone differences and so forth as well as limitations on number of WC*, BLND, INF and CHD.
CANCELLED OR DELAYED FLIGHTS
Cancelled or delayed flights are very easy to handle with a vast selection of sending information to the PAX (email/mail merge/SMS) as well as move PAX to another flight and make automatic vouchers
