Alliance Reservations Network Raises the Bar in Travel Booking Technology with Trip Authority™

Leveraging parent companies RCI and Wyndham Destinations, Trip Authority™ scales growth for select corporate clients.

ORLANDO, Fla., May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Reservations Network (ARN) announced a significant evolution of its B2B travel booking product as a result of its new relationship with RCI, the world's largest vacation exchange network as part of Wyndham Destinations (NYSE: WYND). This evolution comes with a new platform name, Trip Authority™.

"The impact of ARN joining forces with RCI and Wyndham Destinations is being felt in Trip Authority™," said Peter Strack, President of Alliance Reservations Network. "Together these formidable companies have elevated an already robust platform that serves a wide range of industries."

ARN's travel booking platform, which provides travel booking for companies with large captive audiences, already provided an intuitive travel booking experience for hotels, car rentals, and airfare in a flexible travel platform that provided B2B partners with powerful business tools. With Trip Authority™, ARN raises the bar.

Trip Authority™ is a multidimensional travel technology that wraps itself around the end customer through dynamically adaptive algorithms. The customizable branded user experience and dynamic pricing and commission features are just a couple of the key benefits that demonstrate the versatility of the platform.

Branded User Experience & Profit Power
ARN is committed to "building your brand, not our own," as their company slogan says. Staying true to that, Trip Authority™ offers a completely customizable interface and proprietary tools that give customers complete branding power over what products their end-users ultimately see, feel and experience.

Beyond simply the look and feel, however, the platform takes the branded user experience several steps further. Trip Authority™ molds everything from inventory offering and price points to rewards and loyalty integration around the customer's business model. In this way, the travel platform becomes a business extension that is hyper-targeted to the customer's needs.

Trip Authority™ aims to meet the end user's exact needs, increasing conversion and thus revenue.
