The Agent Desktop, PASS Virtual Travel Organizer (PASS VTO) is a graphical user interface that gives you access to booking functionalities for flights, hotels, rail and car rentals. Many other features like Passenger Name Record (PNR) processing, re-booking, ticketing (Billing Settlement Plan and Airline Reporting Corporation) are supported as well.
The PASS VTO works in conjunction with the XML Interface Manager (XX1) back-end system, which facilitates connectivity to all Global Distribution Systems (GDS), Global Distribution Systems New Entrants (GNE) and providers. Thereby you will make your travel agency independent from travel technology providers and win back technology sovereignty for your organization. PASS VTO therefore not only gives you a strategic but also an operational competitive advantage. Service providers can be exchanged or added on at any time without affecting the interface, which gives you full control of your content at all times.
