Any Corporate Travel Agents who can help.

Jump to last reply

Hello, I apologies if this topic isn’t exactly Travel related but I’m a University student studying a Computer Science degree and my final year project is to develop a Travel Policy Management System. Are there any Business Travel Consultants who could help me with a couple of questions?

The plan is that a large company’s (XYZ Corporation) Travel Manager would use consolidated data as a means to automatically generate a travel policy that is then sent out the travel providers.

So if their discounted or negotiated fares with airline Example Air, being the preferred airline required them to sell 400 passengers New York to London a new Travel Policy would be generated once they had met that target. Making another airline the new preferred carrier.

This would be an automated process, but I don’t want to bore you with those details.

My question 1 is: Is it feasible that a contract between a corporation and the airline which details the negotiated fares and conditions can be formatted in a way that enables me to write a program to import this into a database?

My question 12 is: Do Travel Agents who specialize in corporate travel have systems that would allow the import of a travel policy in electronic format?

Many thanks
