Aria Product Now Includes Form of Payment Dashboard
ARLINGTON, Va. – June 4, 2018 – Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC) today announced major enhancements to Aria—a business intelligence product that provides travel agents with an easy way to view high-level analytics of sales activity along with detailed ARC-settled ticketing data.
Agencies will now have access to a form of payment dashboard, which allows the user to drill down to any particular transaction and generate a copy of any settled transaction in receipt form. This will enable the agency to show clients proof of travel with the generation of a receipt or image. Agencies can search by ticket number, the last four credit card digits, passenger name and tour code.
A sales-trends graph is also available to help agencies quickly see when there were spikes or dips in overall sales, and drill down to that particular period.
“ARC launched Aria in May 2017 and over the past year we’ve worked closely with our customers to identify value-added enhancements. With this release, additional metrics and dashboards will help agencies to spot sales trends, identify passenger patterns and pinpoint destinations of interest,” said Arun Gupta, ARC managing director of product management. “Aria is designed to be affordable for any ARC agency since pricing is based on the volume of settled transactions.”
