wbe.travel in press: The Lost Executive – Technology supporting the travel industry
Narelle Neville, the senior editor of the online publication “The Lost Executive” wrote a beautiful material about wbe.travel supporting the travel industry with various robust solutions and innovation. We really enjoyed browsing it and we advise you to do the same.
Like building a house, a business cannot grow and outperform its competition without the best tools. A European business, wbe.travel, has created invaluable centralized client management and sales platform for businesses and individuals working in the travel and tour industry.
Based out of Bucharest in Romania and dealing with a global travel market place of small to medium-sized enterprises, wbe.travel celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2019 and has spent the last ten years keeping themselves and their clients ahead of the competition when it comes to the travel booking market place.
Showing no signs of slowing, wbe.travel has implemented more than 100 systems all over the world and has helped travel companies distribute their travel inventory with state of the art technology. wbe.travel’s off the shelf software products cover a full range of processes from production, contracting, mid-office management to API distribution. Fully available both in English and in Arabic, the booking engines were design to cater for Arabic travellers as well as English speaking ones.
Founded by George Dumitru and Cristian Isbasoiu the business has been a pioneer in many areas not only including travel and tour but also in how they approach office and employee management. Preferring a relaxed and innovative environment where creativity is rewarded, and people have a flexible working environment that is very target orientated.
As modern technology develops, so too do the ideas and motivations of those working behind the scenes. wbe.travel provides a user-friendly platform for destination management companies, travel management companies and business-to-customer travel agency sites dealing with booking hotels, flights and other travel services. Helping these companies control and record their bookings, purchases and client movements, centralizing all of the elements that go into running a business to a central point, allowing these travel companies to grow faster and more reliably in a scalable fashion.
Scalability is very important when developing a platform that can support a business, especially when it’s in such a colorful industry as travel and tourism. It must grow with the business while at the same time providing useful and irreplaceable tools to make our clients’ lives and businesses more efficient and stronger.
wbe.travel has, for ten years, developed a strong client base that relies heavily on them for the running of their businesses. They are the platform on which thousands of people earn their income, so all partners need to be at an equally reliable standard. With multiple awarded clients in this portfolio, wbe.travel has over 45,000 travel agents registered on the system.
LEADING BY EXAMPLE
With over one hundred and fifty integrations with suppliers of travel products ranging from hotels to flights and third party services such as payment gateways and accounting systems, wbe.travel maintains its position as a leader by continuous innovation.
This drive for improvement and development is enhanced and balanced by partnering with leading names in travel and hospitality. These include the likes of Agoda, Booking.com, Priceline, Expedia, HotelBeds, Amadeus, Sabre, Travelfusion and many other world-renowned travel providers.
As a matter of fact, they are only one of the few software houses to provide this number of payment gateway integrations into one user-friendly system. This variety of options creates an ease of transaction between users and their clients which goes a long way in encouraging strong, long term relationships and a healthier cashflow.
In an effort to deploy faster services and forge strong business relationships that will benefit their clients long term, wbe.travel has entered into a Certified Technology Partner Program with Expedia Partner Solutions (EPS). Not open to just anyone, for a business to be included in the program they first had to be up to speed with Expedia’s latest API technology “Rapid”. And, be able to demonstrate a high standard of customer service and a capacity for further growth.
As explained by Fritz Oberhummer, the EPS director of account management platforms in EMEA and LATAM, “The only limitation is internal resources,” he says, “We usually say that businesses need to have partnered with us for at least twelve months and have, geographically and product-wise, a balance across the globe.”
