Advantage signs three tech deals for TMC members

The Advantage Travel Partnership is expanding its global technology marketplace for members with three new partnerships.

It has signed an agreement with TripStax, giving its TMC members access to an “ecosystem of technology to simplify their tech integrations and reduce the need to manage multiple suppliers”.

The technology allows TMCs to connect third party technology or plug-in into any of TripStax’s 10 tech modules – Analytics, Content, Docs, QC and Profile to Approve, Track, Mobile, Hotels and Portal.

Eoin Landers, Head of Global Sales said: “The TripStax offering is highly flexible and scalable and our aim is to be the enabler for TMCs to migrate towards using a centralised data warehouse as a single point of truth for managing and enriching their customers’ travel data. We eagerly anticipate collaborating with TMCs seeking to transition from legacy technologies to the cutting-edge Travel-as-a-Service business model.

“Our approach ensures a smooth and seamless journey, tailored to the specific needs of the TMC without disrupting existing mission-critical workflows.”

It has also partnered with HQ, which gives TMCs access to a comprehensive ground transportation platform, HQ SummitGround.

It offers omnichannel booking, billing, invoice reconciliation, and access to vetted suppliers across five continents, 50 countries, and over 1,000 cities.

Finally, Advantage has partnered with Agency Technology, a GDS centric supplier of mid-office technology products to enhance mid and back-office automation to improve the day-to-day operational processes for TMC members.

Lee Brubaker, President at Agency Technology, said: “Both our organisations are committed to providing TMCs with technology solutions which enable them to scale and streamline their operations, without compromising on the services they provide their clients”.
