Jean Corneau, Co-founder and OwnerWith a diminution of agency commissions and lower profit margins, the travel industry has seen its share of changes over the last decade. In the quest to remain profitable and attractive, travel agencies have laid their wager on impeccable customer service and optimized business processes, which primarily involve automating administrative tasks.

In addition, hundreds of different sales reports can be generated according to multiple selections. “We recently launched comparative report feature allowing managers to schedule a comparative report and sending to several email addresses on a monthly, annual or periodical basis, without having to reschedule it for each period,” states Corneau.
TravelWorks places superfluous emphasis on developing customer focused solutions and delivering excellent customer support through their online portal with quick response time.
