Travel Edge welcomed the arrival of 2020 with the official launch of ADX’s much anticipated Hotel EDGE.
The redesigned hotel flow software streamlines the booking process, while also providing over 88,000 new vendor options for Travel Edge’s advisors. The platform allows for a quick rate comparison, so that advisors find the best option for clients, but it also to ensures they get the best commission possible.
Travel Edge’s luxury travel advisors are now armed with more provider options for hotel bookings, more competitive pricing, as well as markup opportunities to increase profitability.
The Hotel EDGE network of providers allows more options outside of Sabre, welcoming Tourico, HotelBeds, and Travco.
Leading the industry with the most choice of any hotel property booking software, Hotel EDGE is designed to simplify the hotel booking process from start to finish.
Hotel rate commissions are guaranteed without having to chase vendors and are paid on the next billing cycle.
Michael Johnson, executive vice-president of Travel Edge, points out that, “Travel Edge’s ADX Hotel EDGE is going to change the game for advisors wanting more choice in how they run their travel business.”
Johnson continued, “We believe in celebrating the craft of the Luxury Travel Advisor and by continuing to provide world class technology combined with the best commissions in the industry – the Travel Edge Advisor is empowered to do what they love – sell travel. Hotel EDGE provides more choice for the Advisor – more choices for their business, and more choice for their clients.”
Travel Edge looked at how Travel Agents’ days were spent: They discovered 50% of a Travel Agent’s day was spent logging in and out of 20+ different systems and waiting on hold with call centers to book a single customer’s itinerary. Witnessing chronic booking efficiencies, Travel Edge saw the opportunity to modernize Travel Agency workflow through the development of ADX, an all-in-one intelligent booking system.
Johnson said, “ADX was a revolutionary travel booking platform created by Travel Edge in 2014 and designed specifically for the needs of the travel advisor. Its promise was to make travel bookings simple, seamless and quick, leaving Advisors more time to sell – Hotel EDGE continues to drive that focus and empower the travel advisor.”
