ABACUS has just launched a new extension to FareX, which allows both
ABACUS and non-ABACUS agents to retrieve net fares information and download fare sheets from their distributing airline. Through a single
database, airlines are now able to distribute automated fares to ABACUS Reservation Terminals, websites and fare sheets download. This
enhancement gives airlines the widest market coverage, B2B and B2C sales
ďAirlines are distributing net fares through FareX in more than 160 sales
locations across Asia Pacific. With this latest extension to FareX, airlines are
now able to distribute net fares to non-ABACUS agents at the same time thus streamlining business workflow, improving productivity and increasing
their potential customer reach.Ē said Mr John Lim, Director, ABACUS Fares
and Loyalty Programme.
Using Internet connectivity, airlines and wholesalers are able to create,
manage and distribute critical net fares information directly to travel agents
through the ABACUS Reservation Terminals, websites and fare sheets download. By eliminating the faxing of messy fare sheets or time consuming
phone calls to travel agents, FareX allows you to manage your fares and distribution lists online anywhere, anytime, making certain your fares are
always up-to-date and accurate.
In addition, ABACUS travel agents can enjoy auto-pricing and ticketing
capabilities with full pricing validation. This helps to reduce amount of
keystrokes required to fulfil each fare quote & pricing transactions as well as
costly errors resulting in Airline Debit Memos (ADMs).
