Travelers can now go directly to a customized version of routeRANK's tool or access it via Short's booking tool. This allows them to address their entire door-to-door travel route by integrating rail, road and air connections and their many multi-modal combinations. It then allows them to rank the best possible travel routes in a single view, with sorting according to priorities such as price, travel time and CO2 emissions.
Once a travel route is determined, the corresponding “Bookit” button will display for all air flights (hotel and car functionality coming soon). Once Bookit is clicked a pop‐up allows the user to input their email address. Using Short's existing "Bookit" functionality,
users then book the corresponding travel route directly through their preferred travel management company.
As a result of the total trip management functionality, the user may expect savings of up to 35% as well as a substantially reduced planning and travel time. Carbon emissions are equally reduced and contribute to the customer's environmentally responsible image, and productivity is increased in the process as well as by means of the work time criteria.
At the same time, bookings are integrated and completed on Bookit which applies any applicable corporate travel policy, corporate discounts and unused tickets. Since it is booked within Bookit, the travel manager has complete management reporting and increased compliance to the travel program as well.
routeRANK provides web‐based software solutions for travel planning that address the entire door‐to‐door travel route by integrating rail, road and air connections and their many multi‐modal combinations. In a single search, routeRANK's patent-pending technology finds and ranks the best possible travel routes in a single view, allowing users to sort them according to their priorities such as price, travel time and CO2 emissions. Products based on the technology include corporate travel solutions for large companies as well as for SME’s and white label solutions for consumer travel platforms as well as event and institutional websites.
