New RESX Functionality Provides Greater Access to Supplier Fares, Drives Greater Travel Program Savings
ATLANTA, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TRX, Inc. (www.trx.com) (Other OTC: TRXI), a world-leading provider of travel technology, process automation, consulting and data services, today announced updates to the RESX online booking solution enabling expanded passenger type code handling capabilities providing improved savings opportunities for corporations.
The latest RESX enhancement provides users new and improved capabilities to leverage more passenger type codes to obtain the best available fares and reduce overall travel program expenditures. Passenger type codes are used by Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and airlines to identify the type of passenger that is traveling, for example, adult, child, or senior. With the new RESX functionality, administrators and travel managers will now have more control over how travelers are categorized at the point of sale, enabling greater opportunity to target lower rate categories offered by airlines.
Corporations can leverage this feature to book trips for staff members who have children as traveling companions, for example supporting operations of relocating minor children. Now administrators and travel managers can ensure all travelers receive the best fares within the corporate booking tool across all passenger types.
"TRX is continuously enhancing its online booking product," said David Jackson, Vice President, Product Development, TRX. "Expanding RESX's ability to support additional passenger type codes enables corporations to better manage their travel costs by ensuring access to the best available fares."
