EzRez Software, Inc., a software as a service (SaaS) company that provides one of the largest travel inventory networks, tools, and technologies to enable any business to easily package and market travel online, today announced a partnership with Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) to build a complete dynamic vacation packaging suite on the airlines’ website at: www.cebupacificair.com.
The low fare airline leader in the Philippines and one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, CEB is EzRez Software’s most recent airline client in the Asia Pacific market and represents the latest of a number of new Asia-Pacific airline partnerships to come.
EzRez currently works with some of the most recognized and forward thinking names in travel, including American Express, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, American Airlines Vacations, Virgin America, JetBlue, Carlson Travel, Westjet, Riu Hotels & Resorts and more.
“EzRez’s innovative tools will quickly and dramatically enhance CEB’s web presence and help the company capitalize on the multi-billion dollar online vacation package market,” said John Swanciger, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for San Francisco-based EzRez Software, Inc. “Because we plug in to our partners’ existing infrastructure, we are able to add a robust travel booking engine under their own branded sites within a few short months. The entire process is not only incredibly quick and cost-efficient for our partners, but completely personalized so it is seamless to their customers.”
As part of the revamped site, CEB will have the tools to package multiple travel components for additional revenue opportunities, and can draw from the vast inventory of travel providers on the EzRez network. The website will be flexible and configurable for any language or currency and will integrate with any reservation system. The new platform and re-launched website will also improve efficiencies for CEB in the areas of conversion, ancillary revenue and customer satisfaction.
“We want to provide our fast growing customer base the ability to purchase airline tickets, hotel accommodations, car rental services, and entertainment activities all in one place without sending them to a third party. We are confident that many guests will avail of these services in our website as we turn cebupacificair.com into a complete one-stop-shop for all of their travel related needs,” said Lance Gokongwei, CEB President and CEO.
He added, “EzRez is providing us with a flexible system that will allow us to load proprietary inventory, as well as access EzRez’s vast network of distributors to give our Guests the best possible shopping options through our own website at www.cebupacificair.com.”
The new EzRez system integrated into CEB’s website was launched on June 20, 2008. For additional information about EzRez Software’s suite of tools and services, visit www.ezrez.com.
