CUSTOMIZATION – FEATURES

TTS Corporate can be customized to your agency and your companies’ needs through the subscription of the free and paid content and features to allow you to offer your companies a tool as settings-rich as each company needs, clear of unwanted functionality.

Agency branding

The agency can add its logo, which will appear in the application header replacing TTS Corporate’s logo in the agency environment and in the companies’ environment.

Agencies can change TTS Corporate’s main color to adapt the application to their look & feel. The agency color scheme will be applied to the agency environment and to the companies’ environment.

Travel policies

Agencies can change TTS Corporate’s main color to adapt the application to their look & feel. The agency color scheme will be applied to the agency environment and to the companies’ environment.

“In-Policy” rule supports “Auto-Approval” and “Need Approval” options, which apply when the booking respects the associated travel policy. “Auto-approval” feature means that the booking is ready for ticketing after being made, “Need Approval” makes the booking wait for approval.

“Out-of-Policy” rule supports “Hide”, “Forbidden”, “Need Approval”, “Auto-Approval with warning” and “Auto-Approval” options which apply when the search results or the booking does not comply with the traveller’s travel policy. If a trip is “Out-of-Policy, if “Hide” has been chosen, the search results considered Out-of-Policy will not be shown, when “Forbidden” has been selected, all search results appear but the ones considered Out-of-Policy will not be available for selection, , when any of the other options has been selected all search results will be available for selection, and if that’s the case they will be marked as Out-of-Policy, however if an Out-of-Policy price option is booked, “Need Approval” will only allow ticketing after the booking has been approved, “Auto-Approval with warning” and “Auto-Approval” allow ticketing immediately after the booking has been made and if “Auto-Approval with warning” applies it will trigger a notification email to the respective approver(s) letting them know that an Out-of-Policy booking has been made.

Approval workflow supports “Parallel Approval” and “Sequential Approval” which will determine the sequence that the approval email request follows.

If a traveller is subject to “Parallel Approval”, the application will send the approval email request to all approvers at the same time.

If a traveller is subject to “Sequential Approval”, the approvers defined have an order and the application will only send an email to a subsequent approver after receiving the answer of the previous one and only if necessary according with what is set in minimum approvals.

Travel policies support several approvers.

Allows travel policy creators to set the minimum number of the approvals to consider a booking authorized. It’s applicable to “Sequential” and “Parallel” workflow approvals and is particularly useful when a traveller just needs to receive a specific number of approvals for the booking to be considered authorized even if he has more approvers than that specific number (e.g. the traveller just needs 2 approvals but he has 5 approvers in his travel policy).

It allows users to specify the bookings what the travelers are authorized to book.

Supports the following flight parameters:

Type of Journey, From Country, From City, To Country, To City, Carrier, Class and Up to amount per passenger.

Up to amount can be set as a fixed amount or as a fixed or relative (%) tolerance towards cheapest search result.
