CodeGen, the specialist Travel & Tourism software Technology Company, have announced a new addition to their product suite – ‘Wide Search’ – available through the Holiday Manager module of their ‘TravelBox’ integrated system.
Developed in conjunction with one of the UK’s leading Tour Operators and Travel Organisations, this development will provide users with a unique approach to providing holidays or travel components.
“Searching for the right holiday match based upon a range of customisable criteria (and ‘forced’ components) has NEVER been easier”, said the company’s Commercial Director, Bharat Patel. “As the next generation of dynamic package searches, Wide Search functionality provides the ability to display multiple holiday options and packages at the same time, based on a mix of fully configurable criteria, including alternative airports, holiday type, region, resort, property, dates and durations”, he continued.
Wide Search also allows a ‘weighting’ to be attached to the configurable parameters that will ensure the client is offered the closest available match to their requirements. It will display multiple holiday types (fly drive, single, twin or multi-centre holidays, cruises, flights, accommodation only, tours and excursions etc.) alongside each other and based on the most complex, or simple, search criteria.
Holiday Manager’s Wide Search facility features the ability to display at the same time, multiple packages and product diversity, Dynamic pricing & availability and a controlled result presentation based upon yield and book-ability factors.
For example, a wide-search will compare and view the options for a fly-drive holiday in the USA against a 5* stay-put holiday in Dubai and with a 7-night Caribbean Cruise all based on a single or multiple criteria such as departure date, airport, duration, cost or accommodation rating.
“We believe that this exciting development will Revolutionise the way in which internet clients will search and the way in which Holiday Companies will promote holidays to even the most demanding of your clients”, concluded Patel.
CodeGen will be attending World Travel Market at London’s
