Intelligence for Travel Package Management
TRAVELCOMMERCE - New York, NY -- April 20, 2004 -- Accovia Inc., the global leader in travel packaging technology, and QlikTech International, a provider of powerful and rapidly deployable business intelligence (BI) software solutions, today announced a partnership to integrate QlikTech’s QlikView business intelligence and analysis software with Accovia’s Travel Package Management solution. The partnership will allow airlines, hoteliers, travel agencies and tour operators to access, analyze, understand and distribute meaningful operational information from disparate databases to support better and faster business decisions. Executives will be able to generate ‘what if’ packaging scenarios that help determine how to maximize revenue and minimize loss, identify purchasing trends, and analyze profitability per customer and product.
Travel providers and marketers need to quickly determine which packaged offerings will yield the highest margins, which suppliers and distributors best contribute to the business, and which marketing promotions convert the most shoppers to buyers. The incorporation of QlikView into Accovia’s Travel Package Management solution allows Accovia’s customers to easily access, view and provide meaningful business information throughout the organization.
“We are delighted to have Accovia as a certified QlikView application partner,” said Chris Berg, president and CEO of QlikTech Inc. “Combining Accovia’s knowledge and solutions for the travel industry with our powerful yet easy-to-use analysis and reporting capabilities, will create an outstanding software solution for helping travel package providers become more competitive and profitable.”
“In the current economic environment, travel providers and marketers need to quickly understand where revenues are being generated or lost,” said Claude Guay, president and CEO of Accovia. “QlikView will help our customers facilitate successful multi-channel management, maximize marketing investments and make more informed business decisions. We have developed a standard set of modules and templates based on our products, which are generic to the entire travel industry so that travel service providers can benefit from the Accovia Business Intelligence Solution, regardless of whether or not they are using our Travel Package Management Solution or a database of products.”
By combining QlikView with Accovia’s Modules or Templates, information is displayed to users in a highly interactive, intuitive and graphical environment. These displays, or “dashboards,” can contain information retrieved from any data source such as Sales, CRM or Financial applications, providing an integrated view of operational information across multiple departments. Each Module or Template maps to a specific business area or process including, but not limited to, Scheduled Air Sales, Product Sales, Inventory Monitoring and Operations.
