their OTA Business

Overview

  • Company: All-in-one Travel (Attar Travels)
    Industry: Travel
    Location: KSA
  • Problem:
    Timely billing, real time accounting and complex supplier – subagent reconciliation.
  • Solution:
    A complete automation via end-to-end integration of OTA platform, mid – back office and supplier platform

Founded in 1952, Attar Travel is one of the oldest agencies in Saudi Arabia with more than 42 offices and than 500 employees throughout the entire Kingdom.

All-in-one-travel is an exclusive hotel B2B brand of ATTAR Travels that has been operational with TRAACS ERP since January 2015.  Attar’s IT wanted to keep pace with the travel industry digital transformation resulting in an ever-increasing dependency on financial staff manual labor to support management information and subagent business information demands. Lack of timely management information and control began to increase the cost of operations and, more importantly, began to impact acceptable levels of subagent services and customer satisfaction
