BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
Corporate payments provider Airplus International has added Australia-based Troovo as an additional automation technology partner to integrate with its virtual card platform AIDA.
Troovo uses travel agency robotics to automate the data entry requirements of processing travel and payment transactions. By connecting with AIDA, Troovo generates a virtual card invisibly and automatically, and the process eliminates the need for manual handling while ensuring 100 per cent accuracy and security, according to the firms.
With this latest partnership, Airplus’s AIDA is now integrated with more than 70 partner systems, booking platforms and GDSs, including Conferma, Serko, Amadeus, Cytric, Concur and HRS.
Danielle Jones, country manager for Australia at Airplus International, said: “We’re thrilled to offer a new technology partner to our partners and customers. At Airplus International we’re always on the lookout for the latest technology solutions to improve the payment experience and Troovo is at the cutting edge of virtual payments automation technology. It is great to see a technology partner that is based in Australia who we can soon offer into new markets where Airplus is present.”
Kurt Knackstedt, CEO of Troovo, added: “This partnership with Airplus will offer travel intermediaries of all kinds the leverage of Troovo’s full robotic virtual payments module to eliminate manual intervention in payments and streamline the entire travel workflow. Troovo’s world-first, patent-pending robotic engine gives Airplus customers the opportunity to leverage virtual payments with no development effort or change to operational workflows, giving tremendous added value to Airplus customers.”
