GlobalStar Travel Management today announced it can now provide an enhanced consolidated, validated data flow to any central reporting tool with the Travel Data Gateway cleansing tool developed by 3wai. GlobalStar Clients will be able to see accurate, fully reconciled data, earlier; so, important decisions can be deployed in a timely manner. This unique engineering solution, which GlobalStar has named DataStar 3.0, was created in conjunction with 3wai, a technology provider in the travel and loyalty industries.
Gonçalo Fernandes, Executive Director IT at GlobalStar says,
“Working to develop this tool with 3wai has enabled us to significantly improve our Global data cleansing and normalization process. We have been able to tighten our validation processes and data accuracy, and diagnose and fix potential data errors quicker than ever before. This tool also includes a specialized hotel reconciliation module. We believe this gives us greater control and accuracy thus improving the quality of reporting for our clients. We have used other products that claim to have the “validation” functionality, but they do not do the job for us. With the 3wai product, we are notified of the exact errors as the data is imported, and can access the specific error instantly with the click of a mouse. The reporting function also allows us to run performance analysis on GlobalStar partners and provide personalized training and technology solution to constantly improve the Data handoff.”
Rick Ridding, President of 3wai, states that,
“It has been great working closely with GlobalStar to fine-tune our Travel Data Gateway (TDG) product. One major benefit is our integration with all of the major GDSs. TDG enables our agency’s PNR data to flow directly into our system within minutes after the time of booking. GlobalStar can now get accurate reports in a timely fashion using the normalized data from their Partners all across the globe.”
