Born from the need to automate air bookings for the FIFO market and the general resources sector, The Travel Authority has partnered with Amadeus to develop a robotic tool which automatically processes and manages movement rosters for mine-site/oil rig shift teams on their regular FIFO air travel to/from their workplace.
The solution is a highly customisable tool, designed and built on the Amadeus Web Service platform with a SQL Server Database backend, enabling our clients to upload an agreed pre-formatted movement roster (e.g. from OPMS system) directly into a dedicated web portal, validate its format compliancy, create individual bookings with profile data and deliver the completed itineraries to a nominated destination within seconds.
The Travel Authority’s corporate online booking engine Concur Travel is a robust, flexible and sophisticated global solution giving our Travellers and Travel Arrangers multi-level/user access to efficiently take control of airline, hotel and car hire bookings. Concur gives unparalleled control over the travel management programme and offers travellers greater choice with their trips while complying with travel policy guidelines. Concur is designed around secure Web server technology which can be used in any location with Internet connection, using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption ensuring the strongest levels of privacy and data security. All functionality is based on user-friendly ‘point-and-click’ principles interfacing into our mid-office systems.
The Travel Authority’s online reporting is truly an easy means of accessing genuine “up to the minute” real time data. When appropriate access permission is granted, the user can generate a selection of corporate Management Reports across a wide selection of data across all business units, departments, cost centres or individual travellers.
In addition to our standard online reporting facility (TTA Report) The Travel Authority further offers this state-of-the art, web-based management reporting tool with the following key features:
- Executive Dashboard Reporting
- Snapshot reports, graphs and charts for travel spend and usage
- Quick search functionality for transactions and ad-hoc queries
- Scheduled and batch reporting
- Data warehouse
- 24/7 online access
Amadeus OneClick is a powerful web-based application which allows our clients to easily locate and obtain traveller information from a central portal – a dynamic calendar search and map-based view to show full itinerary details and clear route view display.
This ensures you stay connected to your travellers via Email and the two-way SMS feature from the same platform, providing 24/7 real-time support and prompt communication.
This is a key differentiator for us and is available to all clients of The Travel Authority. Local numbers are listed in London, Germany, New York, Los Angeles, Chile, South Africa and Hong Kong with more on the way. The call diverts to The Travel Authority office in Sydney or to the After Hours consultants (if outside business hours). This is a tried and tested and valued service for our existing clients.
