CentralCommand Travel Agency Software
The CentralCommand Solution
Sabre® CentralCommand with Agresso is the only travel industry software offering a fully integrated end-to-end business information system for travel agencies and travel management companies (TMCs). It combines Sabre’s expertise and focus on travel with UNIT4’s powerful back-office financial management tools, known generally as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). CentralCommand provides the detailed level of reporting needed by growing travel management customers who have complex settlement, billing and reporting requirements and the operational tools to optimize business processes.
Why Do Travel Companies Need Agile Travel Industry Software?
In today’s environment, TMCs need every advantage to compete with pressure from mega-agencies, online travel companies and regional players. Continuing to use dated technology and tolerate inefficient process will likely spell doom for those companies, especially as competition intensifies and economic conditions continue to falter.
Most traditional agency back office systems, originally created by the GDS (or others) to automate ticket settlement were designed in decades past. A disparate set of disconnected systems, these tools fail to provide the more sophisticated business information and analysis enjoyed in other industries:
- information is scattered across spreadsheets and stand-alone systems;
- report generation is a cumbersome, often manual task;
- systems are brittle and lacked adaptability.
Many travel companies today are
- wasting time on error correction and manual tasks;
- wasting money on unrecognized vendor commissions;
- limiting their ability to grow and respond to industry developments.
