Voxel and Juniper Join Forces to Ease the Use of Electronic Payments for the Travel Industry

Spain, Barcelona. April 29, 2020

baVel, Voxel's leading electronic transaction platform in the travel sector, has been integrated with Juniper, a leading technology provider for the tourism industry, to boost B2B payments in the travel industry. With this alliance, Juniper clients will be able to directly access the baVel payment service provider ecosystem that currently integrates more than a dozen electronic-payment service providers.

The baVel and Juniper systems have been connected for over 10 years, offering electronic invoice issuance and reception services. From now on, travel companies that use Juniper as their main booking engine will also have the possibility to directly access to payment providers such as Barclaycard, XanderPay, eNett, Wex, Kantox or American Express without having to develop integrations with each of them.

The use of baVel payment solutions has a direct impact on travel industry management. In the case of hotels, it automates payments and eliminates manual processing of cards, in addition to being able to link certain rates to low-cost payment solutions. Meanwhile, OTAs, bedbanks and travel agencies can access an ecosystem of multiple payment solutions with one single integration, eliminating costly payment reconciliation and recovering VAT internationally.

Furthermore, baVel's electronic payment services offer a secure, robust environment and PCI Compliance in all the countries it operates in. Companies like W2M, Fastpayhotels and Portimar are already working successfully with the integration between baVel and Juniper.

baVel will also be integrated into Cangooroo, Juniper's booking engine for travel companies that plan to make a technological leap forward and expand globally. Cangooroo leads in Brazil and has a growing global presence. For current Cangooroo users, having a direct connection to an electronic transaction platform like baVel contributes real added value since the use of electronic invoicing in Latin America is very widespread. In fact, Brazil's electronic invoicing system is one of the most successful and consolidated in the world.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
