helping global travel companies accelerate the payments process

Case study: How 360 Private Travel and eGlobalfares are benefiting from our first-class services

360 Private Travel and eGlobalfares are committed to providing their clients around the world with efficient global payment solutions.

The integration of our world-class API solutions has helped both companies achieve this – cutting time spent managing global payments in multiple currencies, while providing peace of mind that tasks are being managed effectively.

Linking workflows: 360 Private Travel and AFEX Direct API

UK-based 360 Private Travel creates and manages bespoke luxury holidays for customers across the globe. The company needed an efficient way to pay invoices in multiple foreign currencies, and better manage the payment method, in order to save time and cut costs.

Before working with AFEX, 360 Private Travel had separate software for creating bills and for sending payments, with no connectivity between the two and no clear reporting on the progress of payments.

Manual updating across various systems was creating extra work for employees, with a risk of information being missed. A system was needed that would quickly and efficiently amalgamate and manage these tasks.

A move to our Direct API has solved this problem, providing 360 Private Travel with a single system that helps staff book and pay for tours, flights and hotels. The team can now process and pay foreign currency invoices from around the world with the minimum of fuss.

The power of partnership: eGlobalfares and AFEX Partner API

With offices around the world, eGlobalfares is a leading provider of travel software solutions for airline fare management. To ensure that its clients – travel management companies and travel agents – have access to the latest FX information, alongside a global payment solution, the company looked to our AFEX Partner API solution for help.

Offering up-to-the-minute exchange rates, the API enables travel agents to lock in favorable rates for their customers. Agents can also automate and reconcile payments, book either spot or forward transactions, add multiple beneficiaries, and access the complete Vostro to Vostro account process flow.

“We are very excited to start this new partnership with AFEX,” says Dave Rifkin, CEO of eGlobalfares. “When looking for a global payment solution, we considered several alternatives and found the AFEX technology platform to be both flexible and efficient.”
