Signature Travel Network reports it will develop a new proprietary itinerary management system for its travel consultants. The app will streamline the communication process between consultant and client as the itinerary is created, developed, and finalized, Signature said, and will be developed with AXUS Travel App.
“Signature will be working with AXUS to provide a proprietary, licensed version of the app that incorporates Signature’s in-depth hotel program content, cruise itinerary and ship profile content, and destination content," said Karen Yeates, Signature’s executive vice president of information technologies.
A feature of Signature’s licensed version of the app will be the automation of res card data from ClientBase into the application so consultants do not have to take an extra step to move client itinerary information into the application.
The new app will include the following features: provide travelers with immediate access to their confirmed reservations; integrate all elements of an itinerary, including hotel, cruise, air, car, private tours, as well as restaurant reservations; consolidate all information into a single format for the client; make itinerary information available both within the mobile app and/or printable PDF; enable clients to contribute and add to the itinerary; and provide agents with a tool that can send real-time updates to clients through automated notifications.
Signature said it will also work closely with Classic Vacations to offer Signature members a complimentary introductory subscription to AXUS. Classic Vacations will soon have a fully integrated application program interface into AXUS, subsequently making bookings made with Classic Vacations immediately available within the new Signature app.
Subscriptions details for Signature member agencies will be released the week of January 5, 2015, Signature said.
