SAN DIEGO, CA—Innfinity Software Systems, a San Diego-based technology company providing managed travel and property management solutions, has rolled out the Innfinite online booking tool (OBT) to one of North America’s largest providers of industrial services to the energy and mining sectors.
The rollout of Innfinite, in partnership with Vision Travel Solutions, provides the client with full access to Sabre GDS content and exclusive Air Canada Direct Connect content, as well as negotiated air, hotel and rental car pricing. This rollout also represents one of the first instances that a WestJet corporate client has consistent, reliable access to WestJet bulk fares via an OBT.
Innfinite empowers the client to leverage Sabre’s extensive supplier network in order to gain access to a wide array of negotiated airfares, rental car rates and hotels rates. When the client is not able to find the flight content they need via the Sabre GDS, they can book content sourced directly from Air Canada’s AC2U Direct Connect. Currently, Innfinity is the online booking tool with the highest level of connectivity to Air Canada’s available web services.
Additionally, the flexible architecture that underlies the Innfinite OBT enables the client’s travel managers to access hard-to-find WestJet bulk fares. WestJet bulk fares often do not display in legacy online booking tools because the algorithms these tools employ fail to identify them as desirable fares. In order to pull up WestJet bulk fares, Innfinite runs concurrent, parallel searches for select WestJet routings identified by Vision Travel as eligible for bulk fare pricing. If a routing is found that has been previously identified by Vision Travel as bulk fare-eligible, but no bulk fare pricing returns upon the first search, a second search is fired off for that specific routing to retrieve the missing fare. For the travel manager, these bulk fares appear alongside WestJet’s standard fare classes and are able to be booked like any standard fare class.
Lora Sirizzotti, Vision Travel’s National Account Director says, “When it comes to managing project travel for our valued client partners, most specifically the coordination of virtually any resource—air, ground transportation and camp accommodations, there is no better product out there that can easily accommodate all the detailed aspects of project travel than the Innfinite online booking tool. Innfinity’s booking tool platform has provided us with a unique position in one of our most important markets: Energy, Resource & Mining.”
