Booking travel is poised to get a whole lot easier and more cost-effective for every stakeholder in the travel supply chain. Introducing PSGNR1, a New York City-based, first-of-its-kind industry inclusive platform that opens the door for users to book corporate and leisure travel in one profile and interface, while smoothing the path for corporations to sign up and connect with their preferred travel management companies.
With their focus on single reservations, current travel booking tools make planning and booking full itineraries laborious and unorganized. Cutting through the clutter, PSNGR1 (pronounced “passenger one”) offers game-changing TripBoards that allow users to easily invite colleagues, family, and friends to collaboratively plan, book, and manage all aspects of their trip in one intuitive experience.
Logged into the platform, groups, and individuals can add flights, hotels, cars, trains, and custom events such as restaurant reservations to build a full itinerary with all travel components combined simply and efficiently. The functionality of PSNGR1’s TripBoards not only allows groups to collaborate on, interact with, and track the costs of their itinerary, it also allows future travelers to search and reference a library of existing TripBoards as inspiration for their next journey.
Meanwhile, “suppliers” in the travel supply chain – hotels, airlines, car rental agencies, and more – enjoy unparalleled visibility and access to travelers’ information via a universal-yet-anonymous profile, affording flexibility to create and provide customized offerings to consumers in the midst of their booking journey.
PSNGR1 further delivers the most advanced flight search, allowing all fare options to be displayed via one-search request. Leveraging the Next Generation Storefront (NGS), the platform can drive upsells for airline partners up to 30% more than traditional one-cabin search responses. The goal, in a nutshell, is to standardize content across the entire travel ribbon, ensuring that users are fully educated as they plan and purchase.
PSNGR1 also invites hardworking corporate travel managers to sign up, choose their preferred TMC, and start leveraging tools within minutes without all the hassle of subscriptions or booking fees. Result? Double-digit savings versus current offerings thanks to smarter policies, better content, and more user adoption, driving rogue travelers back into corporate programs and policies. Indeed, the platform brightens the booking experience for traveling employees, who can use it to take advantage of deals and personalized offers that enhance the overall travel experience.
If all of the above weren’t enough, PSNGR1 provides travel agencies access to all GDS (Global Distribution Systems) and NDC (New Distribution Capability) content, with savings of up to 25% for current agency partners in onboarding the next generation of travel agents with a proprietary point-and-click travel agent application (TAA). It similarly benefits travel suppliers by offering means to uniquely engage travelers with appealing offers in the most-transparent marketplace, with real-time, data-driven targeting based on the behavior, preferences, and holistic footprint of individual users.
Conceived and launched in 2016 by industry expert Christopher Moss, PSNGR1 is building for the future with a growing team of nearly 30 employees and $13 million in aggregate funding secured this past May.
“We positioned PSNGR1 to be the foundation of the ecosystem, allowing for all stakeholders to benefit,” says Founder and CEO Moss, explaining the platform grants users one dynamic profile, an interface for business and leisure booking; suppliers an outlet to distribute their products how they choose, with data-driven personalization; travel agencies an ability to drive their digital transformation; and corporations an offering that their travelers will want to use, solving for rogue bookers. “Our software allows everyone in the industry to win.”
