Amadeus Fare Xpert Mark-Up and Distribution Module

Amadeus is about to supplement its FareXpert Filing Platform with a new Negotiated Fares module by mid-January 2007.

Amadeus Fare Xpert-is the GUI Version of Nego Fares which is the Mark-Up and Distribution Module, the speedy tool for mark-up of net fares and distribution to selected vendors. Amadeus Fare Xpert Mark-Up and Distribution Module is a tool for large travel agencies and tour operators that receive contracted net fares from the airlines and need to add their own mark-up to the fares.

Amadeus Fare Xpert Mark-Up and Distribution Module makes it possible to add the mark-up as a fixed sum or as a percentage, whichever you prefer. It also facilitates working with several levels depending on target groups, sales channels or geographical areas. Updates take just minutes and changes can be made just as quickly.

Match and meet competition in real time
Amadeus Fare Xpert Mark-Up and Distribution Module enables the agent to control the selling level of the fares thereby providing the capability to modify and adapt the mark-ups depending on the market. If a competing special offer needs to be met the agent can quickly adjust the mark-up and earnings in just a few keystrokes.

Enhanced service
Fares distributed to travel agencies through Amadeus Fare Xpert Mark-Up and Distribution Module are published immediately. You will save a great deal of time by not having to check other sources, no manual effort is needed and you can refine your search in order to pinpoint your customer's needs just as you do for published fares.

The fares will appear with the published range of fares and thereby help you to provide your customer with the best price, where any agreements or promotional fares will be taken into consideration.
