Agent Interface Area - on the way

Our team is working to create a new module to value add to operators out there selling trips.
The new area will allow suppliers partners and agents to access a unique login area to review seats for the trip and complete sales using any payment ( cash, cheques, agent account and more)
This means agents will be able to view seats available at a glance and sell them on the spot.
The system will track net rates / commissions and report balances received and payable.
A great way to have others sell your seats and keep track of payments easily.

What would you need to make your reseller/ agent area as effective as possible?
Would you prefer options for set net rate or commission tracking on each seat sold?
What agents would make the system more valuable for suppliers?


Please contact us to discuss this upgrade or blog away! .
