(TQI) Travelsoft / QuickTrav GDS integration project for Smartpoint
We partnered with TRAVELSOFT TO BRING YOU FULLY VALIDATED QUICKTRAV INFO AT SOURCE
We know you love QuickTrav, why wouldn’t you ?
It’s the most robust accounting & back office software written specifically for the travel industry.
Time to step it up a notch, as we introduce a Travelsoft / QuickTrav GDS integration project for Smartpoint also known as TQI!
Whether your client has a simple or extremely complex reporting requirement, TQi lets you validate all the information that was captured in your Travelsoft pnr, against QuickTrav back office before issuing of tickets, invoices & vouchers.
TQI lets you enforce active & live credit limits before issuing any documents.
Allow TQI to automatically issue/void or view your car and hotel vouchers and drastically speed up your workflow, using the QT web client.
With a responsive web browser look and feel, it will run on any device that supports a modern browser such as a desktop, laptop, tablet & even your cell phone.
The web client can be run anywhere on any device outside the agency office network, which makes it the most suitable after hour / away from office, voucher generation solution.
Customer data validation is key!
At Quick Software, we consider ourselves an integral part of the travel industry. We know that your reputation is built one customer at a time, and when your competitors have huge corporations backing them, that reputation becomes one of your most valuable assets. That’s why we believe that the Travelsoft / QuickTrav GDS integration project for Smartpoint could offer you the competitive edge.
To populate the “perfect” pnr with all required fully validated QuickTrav info, so that when QuickTrav documents (invoices for tickets and vouchers for land segments) are issued, they can be issued automatically and are guaranteed to be issued 100% accurately without errors, thereby improving overall consultant efficiencies, reducing back-office wasted time and effort fixing errors / completing documents, and achieving more accurate pnr reporting etc.
Quicktrav Validation & automation at your fingertips
The SmartPoint Quick Command #QT, will launch the Travelsoft QuickTrav Galileo interface. From here all QuickTrav GDS intergration functions can be performed.
If you’ve ever taken on Invoicing for a client with a very specific Service Level Agreement, you’ll likely need to know how to ensure that all the information they required is captured correctly across all platforms the first time. This can be intimidating to some people, but don’t let that stop you!
The QT Di Form opens a web form for the fully validated capture of the required QT document header information. This is required for the successful QT automatic invoicing of tickets and is a partial requirement for the automatic issue of QT vouchers.
All information is stored in the PNR’s DI remarks.
It’s no secret that good credit management are an absolute necessity, and can reduce financial risk.
If credit limits are enforced, the system will check the balance of account to the Main Debtors Module, to the value of the Invoices issued and if applicable take the necessary action.
The QT Check, will check a) the QT document header info & validate the information selected in the QT Di Form and b) will do a QT live credit check
Currently under development: Later this will check all segments and report on the non-air land segments as well.
Travelport allowed the user to make a physical reservation whether as a passive/active segment.
The QT Si Form opens a web form for fully validated capture of the current land segment’s additional information.
- This must be run separately for each segment.
- This is required for the successful QT automatic issue of vouchers.
- This information, including the voucher no, is stored in the pnr RI associated segment remarks.
The age old debate of man versus machine. We’ve created the ideal symbiotic relationship, as users are able to choose between issuing vouchers manually, vs automatically.
The “auto-issue” will require the Travelport property code to be loaded in the Supplier setup with Windows Invoicing, which will feed through to our other applications.
Should the user opt to rather process the voucher manually, they’ll be redirected to the QuickTrav Web interface.
QT Di Form
Whether your client has a simple or extremely complex reporting requirement, TQI lets you validate all the information that was captured in your Travelsoft pnr, against QuickTrav back office settings, which can be customised per client e.g. 2nd – 10th References, before issuing of tickets, invoices & vouchers.
Simple navigation allows the user to either select the drop down or simply type a portion of the word search to yield possible matches.
Users can at this stage add any of the following optional fields / criteria :
- Up to 3 Service fees ( automatic service fees excluded from this limit)
- Published / Benchmark Fares / Air miles & reason codes – if activated
- Booking Information – if activated
- General Details
- Accounting Information
Any information entered in the DI Form will be stored in the DI remarks
The QT Check will validate the document header information captured in QT Di Form and if the Credit Management is activated, perform a live credit check, per the accounts credit limit and terms.
Any irregularity/breech of limit will immediately be notified.
QT Si Form
This opens a Web form for fully validated capture of the current land segment QT segment additional information.
- This must be run separately for each segment, in order to link the supplier & payment method to the particular supplier.
- This is a prerequisite for the successful QT automatic issue of vouchers.
- This information, including the voucher no, is stored in the pnr RI associated segment remarks
Manual vs. Automatic Vouchers
Automatic Issue :
This allows one click automatic issuing of the selected land segment voucher.
- This will require the SI Form to be completed. **
- This voucher number assigned and system generated via the Web Client is stored in the pnr RI associated segment remarks.
- Auto issue can also be used by workflow processes to trigger issue of vouchers
This allows manual issue of the selected land segment voucher, via the Web Client interface to automatically populate all information available in the pnr. Any remaining / missing info must be captured manually, then the voucher saved / issued.
- This voucher no is stored in the pnr RI associated segment remarks
Both the Manual & Auto Issue will automatically create a task to the Web Client to fulfill the request. In both instance voucher numbers will be pre-assigned. In the event of the user cancelling the request, the voucher number will be released.
QuickTrav Web Client
The QuickTrav Web client is a new and ongoing QuickTrav project to provide Web access to the QuickTrav frontend functionality i.e. hotel and car voucher issue / registers, certain invoicing functionality and dashboard functionality.
The above GDS integration project uses the QT web client for certain functionality. The intended audience is consultants who only need the QuickTrav frontend functionality, and runs side by side / in parallel to the current legacy Win32 QuickTrav application, which gives you the flexibility to use either one or both applications together.
The modern web browser look and feel, will run on any device that supports a modern browser i.e. desktop, laptop, tablet, cell phone. When the agency network is configured for external access, then web client can be run anywhere on any device outside the agency office network, which makes it the most suitable after hour / away from office voucher generation / solution.
