Air Canada Vacations chooses Softvoyage
Montreal, December 6, 2016. After an extensive search and review of various systems’ capabilities for today’s and tomorrow’s needs and requirements, Air Canada Vacations chose Softvoyage as its technology partner to meet its current and long-term goals. Softvoyage’s inventory management, e-commerce and electronic distribution solutions provide several opportunities to improve the day-to-day operations at the Tour Operator unit, as well as the distribution of Air Canada Vacations’ products across multiple channels.
Craig Landry, President, Air Canada Leisure Group and responsible for the Air Canada Vacations business unit, explains: ”As we work to quickly grow our business, speed to market and distribution capabilities are essential. The suite of products provided by Softvoyage, including add-on products such as seat selection, cruise, and hotel only bookings, allows us to quickly and efficiently meet the demand of our customers. We look forward to our partnership as we continue to build our business in the years ahead.”
Moïse Lévy, President of Softvoyage, continues: “Softvoyage is proud to serve such an emblematic brand and global leader. Air Canada Vacations had very specific needs moving forward, and an aggressive launch plan. I am proud to report that both teams executed outstanding work, in a relatively short time frame. The task at hand included a full deployment of The Travel System (Softvoyage enterprise solution for tour operators) across all major operational departments at ACV, and the development of several interfaces to internal and external systems with a view to simplify and expedite day-to-day operations. In addition, relying on Softvoyage’s E-Commerce Applications, our teams also collaborated on the revamp of aircanadavacations.com shopping engine (in its “agent” and “consumer” versions), introducing several new enhancements along the way. Finally, because The Travel System is seamlessly integrated to the Softvoyage Distribution Network, ACV will benefit from significant improvements in the distribution of its products across the Canadian leisure travel marketplace.”
The Travel System is a leading inventory management, reservation, accounting and back-end software solution built specifically for the travel industry and in operation at major tour operators worldwide. Designed to enable tour operators to operate efficiently and apply multi-channels distribution strategies, The Travel System supports the management, marketing and sale of both “à la carte”, “dynamically-assembled” or “pre-packaged” travel offerings, across any type of travel products such as air, hotels, cars, cruises, tours, transfers, insurances, and attractions. Acting as a content and distribution hub, The Travel System connects to most global supply sources (GDS, bed banks, etc.) to simplify the process of creating and selling compelling travel offers for today’s travellers.
With powerful management and reporting features, The Travel System’s comprehensive set of interfaces (APIs) and seamless integration to Softvoyage E-Commerce Applications make it a system of choice for wholesalers looking at improving their distribution capabilities across multiple channels with increased speed to market.
Founded in 1987, Softvoyage specializes in the development of technological solutions for Tour Operators, Travel Agencies and Consolidators. Softvoyage has established itself as one of the principal software solution innovators and developers dedicated to the travel industry in North America.
