TRAVELERS TO SEE REAL-TIME FLIGHT AND TICKET ATTRIBUTES FROM ATPCO; AVAILABLE ON THE DEEM PLATFORM THIS MAY
San Francisco, CA – May 5, 2020 – Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the corporate travel industry, today announced it will offer greater flight details in its business travel management platform by integrating ATPCO’s UTAs, a type of Routehappy Rich Content, the industry standard for quickly communicating useful, visual information about the benefits and restrictions of the services that passengers purchase. Deem will make the new content features available to users in mid-May.
“We’re constantly looking for ways to provide the most complete information to travelers without complicating their booking experience,” said Deem CEO John F. Rizzo. “With rapid changes in the travel industry, particularly now, upping the value technology can bring to travelers and agents is key.”
“Travelers and agents need to see at-a-glance merchandising content, that is relevant, accurate and trusted” said Carrie DeMoss, Head of Customer Integrations ATPCO. “ATPCO’s UTAs help corporate travelers understand what fare benefits or restrictions they will receive on the ticket they are shopping for. This consumer-friendly content informs shoppers of refundability, boarding priority, baggage allowance and more and helps to de-commoditize flight shopping, Deem’s innovative integration is a big win for their customers.”
This new rich content integration will help Deem enhance the flight comparison shopping feature for its travelers. ATPCO’s real-time information will further optimize Deem Work Fource with reliable airline details that travelers need to make the right decisions for their trips, especially as the industry and road warriors grapple with uncertain global travel conditions.
