VAYANT Travel Technologies Joins OpenJaw Preferred Supplier Programme

Future OpenJaw t-Retail Platform Releases to Provide Ready Access to the Latest Advanced Flight Shopping Capabilities of Vayant OneSearchTM Fares Pricing and Shopping Engine; Now Live with Joint Loyalty Customer

DUBLIN, Ireland — May 19, 2015

Leading online technology partner to the world’s biggest travel brands, OpenJaw Technologies, today announced that it has added Vayant Travel Technologies, a world leader in airfare search innovation, to the OpenJaw Preferred Supplier Programme. Already an OpenJaw strategic partner, the new relationship will see future t-Retail Platform releases shipped with an optimised connection to Vayant OneSearch fares pricing and shopping engine, for time-to-market efficiencies. The t-Retail Platform is currently live and fully integrated with Vayant’s core OneSearch technology for faster flight search with calendar display for a joint customer. The integration enables the Loyalty customer to benefit from independent calendar flight shopping, dramatically reducing the time it takes to search for and find relevant flight offers.

Vayant has recently expanded its core to include re-pricing capabilities which will further benefit its customers, by accelerating alterations to ticketing and automating key aspects of the reissue, revalidation, cancellation and refund processes.

“OpenJaw continues to forge strong relationships with providers in the ecosystem, so our customers benefit from best-practice strategies for the retailing of all travel products,” said Kieron Branagan, CEO, OpenJaw. “As such, it is with great pleasure that we announce the extension of our Preferred Supplier Programme to include Vayant.”

“Given the proven success of our flight search engine to provide complex calendar search functionality within the t-Retail Platform, we are delighted to take the relationship one step further by becoming a member of the OpenJaw Preferred Supplier Programme,” said Eric Dumas, Chief Executive, Vayant Travel Technologies.

“Already established partners in delivering fast and efficient flight shopping to the travel industry, Vayant and OpenJaw are now committed to aligning our technologies in order for our customers to benefit from easy access to OneSearch capabilities,” said Kieron Branagan, CEO, OpenJaw. “In the fast-paced area of e-Commerce, speed and agility is paramount and this new alignment under the Preferred Supplier Programme will afford our customers considerable advantages around speed of delivery.”
