SAN DIEGO, Oct. 25, 2017 /CNW/ -- Innfinity Software Systems, a San Diego-based technology company providing managed travel and property management solutions, is excited to announce it has gained admission to compete in the Association of Corporate Travel Executive's (ACTE) Game Changer Studios competition. ACTE has chosen select companies offering innovative and game-changing technologies in the business travel space to participate in the competition, to be held at ACTE's Global Corporate Travel Conference in Toronto on November 19-21. The entrant with the highest popular vote as determined by conference-goers will win the opportunity to be recognized on stage at the General Session on the last day of the conference.
The Innfinite corporate online booking tool won Innfinity admission to compete on the basis of three key differentiators: The booking tool offers the richest air content of any corporate booking engine in Canada, allows for the joint management of commercial content and chartered transportation and plans to incorporate blockchain technology into the tool in 2018.
The Innfinite booking tool offers unparalleled direct connect connectivity. At present, Innfinite holds the title as the booking tool with the highest level of connectivity to Air Canada's AC2U web services and is the only tool with an integration to the WestJet Direct API.
The Innfinite online booking tool stands to transform the Energy, Resource and Marine sectors, as it is the only corporate booking tool on the market designed to book commercial air, hotels and rental cars, as well as internally managed charter transportation and housing. Innfinite enables companies to book employees into their inventory of: charter planes; buses; boats; helicopters; shuttles; or rooms at workforce housing sites, on oil rigs or on cargo ships, thus streamlining the creation of a comprehensive travel itinerary for employees working in these sectors.
As part of a longer-term strategy in 2018, Innfinity plans to implement distributed ledger technology—the most common application being blockchain—in the Innfinite tool. This implementation will facilitate smart contracts, offer greater personalization through enhanced traveler and trip data and determine how travel suppliers could better work together to serve the needs of travel buyers in ways not yet seen.
