Why inventing the wheel over and over again: Simply copy an existing itinerary, apply the necessary changes and get your quote out in minutes.
Templates are building blocks that consist of multiple travel components over multiple days. Add the building block in an existing itinerary in order to speed-up the design dramatically.
Operations, Finance, Reporting
Transfers, planning, reporting. Finances (Sales invoices, Receipts, Purchase invoices).
This optional module is highly interesting in order to trigger an automated discount for independant suppliers with a rule-based engine, example:
-IF- stay is 2 nights in accommodation A -AND- 2 nights in accomodation B -AND-3 nights in accommodation C -THEN- discount all suppliers with 10%. The discount can be applied automatically for Cost prices, Sell Prices or both independantly.
When the rule is 'broken' in the itinerary, the system automatically recalculates.
