Automated data transfer between TripBooker and eKNF

Together with our partner TravelTech we activated a fully automated interface between the TripBooker booking system and eKNF.

Airline and rail tickets, and hotel bookings done via TripBooker are automatically transferred to eKNF. We also offer a single sign-on for eKNF users to TripBooker. This is available through the TripBooker button added to ADesk, RDesk, and HDesk modules of eKNF.

Travel agencies willing to use the TripBooker tool are invited to contact TravelTech to activate and configure their account.
