Following is a list and brief description of some of the many technology tools Premiere Travel uses to support the entire reservation process.
Travelport Global Distribution system (GDS) is our primary reservation vehicle.
Apollo is a total access system which allows us to offer instant confirmations for airlines worldwide. Apollo's advanced technology puts all the necessary information at our fingertips. In addition, we augment Travelport's capabilities with other online systems to cross-reference pricing options.
Travelport has strategic solutions, including industry leading e-Pricing™, to ensure travelers have the most advanced tools for shopping low fares; Travelport Rapid Reprice™, an automated ticket repricing product; and Smartpoint an XML product that cuts the processing time of our transactions by up to 50% with intuitive features that will eliminate processing errors.
Fareleader.com: Our online booking engine offers a low cost alternative for cheap tickets, travel specials, and deeply discounted hotels and vacations www.fareleader.com.
With a few key strokes, the Optimal Shopper provides up to 50 alternate itineraries with lower fares. During the search process, Optimal Shopper® can search multiple itinerary combinations in a matter of seconds. After the reservation is made, Fare Checker searches for lower fares that may become available prior to departure.
ResQC has the ability to perform an unlimited number of quality control checks based on the client's defined travel policy parameters. Records with errors are noted and returned to the travel counselor for correction. ResQc checks for fundamental items to insure the logical continuity of the travel plans. More complicated checks involve detecting airfare rule violations and lowest fare verification.
Even after a flight is booked and issued, the Fare Checker will continue working to search for lower fares, up until the outbound day of departure.
Passenger will be notified if the ticket is eligible for re-issue.
We continuously strive to get our clients the seats that they prefer (aisle, window, front, back, exit row, etc). If a preferred seat is not available at the time the reservation is made, Seat Finder will continuously search – 24 hours a day – until time of departure and secures the desired seat if it becomes available.
Our integrated accounting and information management system provides us the ability to consolidate and analyze information quickly and efficiently. It also offers the flexibility to custom-design our own program applications, as well as add other software solutions to meet client's unique operational requirements. Analysis of your data allows Premiere the ability to negotiate the best possible contracts.

There are many Travel Benchmark Reports, websites and newsletters for corporate travel. Periodic surveys are conducted to measure an assortment of data and travel trends which will allow corporations and organizations to measure their performances against the standard benchmarks such as the effectiveness of corporate travel policy, average fare for international and domestic tickets and the adoption of online booking tools. Because these benchmarks vary in terms of scope and objectives, clear goals should be defined before investing in these reports. Premiere Travel’s fares have consistently beaten the benchmark average fares domestically and internationally.
