Montreal, Canada, and Brisbane, Australia – 21 March 2023 – Magnatech Travel Management Solutions and Kudos Travel Technology announce their partnership, integrating Magnatech’s ONTRACKplus™ unused ticket management services into the Kudos Travel Platform. This seamless integration provides an interactive and graphical dashboard for Travel Agents, their corporate clients and travellers to view any available unused credits. Kudos can also facilitate credit uptake when booking flights, all in the one intuitive interface.
Magnatech’s CEO, Paul Gioia, commented, “We’re thrilled to partner with Kudos Travel Technology to bring the ONTRACKplus unused ticket management services to their travel platform. Our goal is to ensure that no credits are left on the table by our clients, and this integration allows us to do just that.”
Kudos Travel Technology’s Managing Director, Phil Rasmussen, added, “We are excited to partner with Magnatech and offer our clients a streamlined, efficient solution for managing their travel credits. By integrating Magnatech’s services into the Kudos Travel Platform, we can ensure our clients have access to all the information they need to reduce costs and make informed travel decisions.”
And it’s not just a benefit to the end traveller or the corporate client. One of the ongoing travel disruption legacies of the COVID-19 pandemic is that travel management companies (TMCs) worldwide have had to contend with the task of managing a seemingly never-ending list of unused ticket credits from cancelled flights. As most airlines have yet to return to pre-pandemic schedules, the use-by dates of these credits have been repeatedly extended, making the job of TMCs even more complex.
To address this challenge, Magnatech’s ONTRACKplus available through Kudos’ Credits Premium module allows for bulk credit expiry updates, eliminating the need for manual expiry updating by TMCs. This ensures that the latest information on unused credits is always available to travellers and corporates, freeing up valuable time for TMCs to focus on more pressing tasks.
“The integration of Magnatech’s unused ticket management services into Kudos’ Travel Platform is a game-changer for our company. Our consultants and our customers can easily access and utilise unused travel credits, the increased automation with Kudos from the Magnatech integration has significantly improved productivity for our team.”
