Traditionally Mikrosystem and TravelTECH are traditionally perceived as competitors, as both companies have in their portfolio mid-office systems. As it appears, we are also able, and willing, to cooperate. We have just launched our first common interface transmitting data between our systems.
We are grateful to our colleagues from TravelTECH for the efficient cooperation, and hope for more 🙂
eKNF is present on the Polish market since 2010. During those five years we changed a lot. The software created by our programmers is now, undisputedly, the leading and most popular mid-office system in Poland.
We proudly present the statistical data showing how, during those years, grew the number of transactions (touristic services) processed in eKNF. In 2015 travel agencies sold and evidenced in eKNF close to a million transactions!
