SION, a commission tracking and management SaaS (software as a service) solution for travel advisors, announced Tuesday its official launch out of beta. SION was developed by a travel advisor “to reduce substantial pain felt by all travel advisors: having a decisive overview picture of bookings and open invoices and means to easily track owed commissions.”
SION's integration with GDS global leader Sabre and partnership with Amadeus, it says, has brought even more power to the platform in a way that benefits users. To date, SION has raised $1 million in pre-seed funding. Even while in beta, SION caught the travel industry's attention, it said in the announcement. To note: Its beta solution won a Voyager HQ award and, in 2019, SION was admitted into and has since graduated from the Virtuoso Travel Incubator program.
SION's platform aims to bring efficiency, accountability and transparency to travel commissions. Its modern user interface and cloud-based platform features include one-click invoicing, category tagging, fully searchable data, easy filter views by timeframe, by-client and by-supplier reporting downloadable to PDF or CSV formats, and more.
SION is a New York City Metro-based global technology company serving the needs of the travel advisor industry. In addition to Sabre and Amadeus, SION is partnered with such travel heavyweights as CCRA Travel Solutions and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Today's industry hardship conditions have led SION to launch its platform for free use for any travel advisor who signs up on its website at sioncentral.com.
