23rd October 2023

Trip Affiliates Network has announced its enhanced integration with Marina Bay Sands (MBS) enabling real time B2B connectivity with TA Network’s global ecosystem of partners through the hotel group’s distribution platforms

TA Network will work closely with MBS on distribution-focused channels through its ecosystem and participating agencies and B2B travel operators which will support MBS and provide enhanced connectivity to the unique distribution network of agents, wholesalers and corporates within the TA Network ecosystem

TA Network’s turnkey solutions and connectivities bring together Asia Pacific’ leading travel wholesalers, operators and destination management companies onto a single platform. TA Network focuses on customer value, direct supplier contracting and real-time connections and improved inventory management, as well as software integration services

TA Network platform leverages technology solutions adopted by hotels to facilitate their direct connectivity and automate their inventory management processes with their traditional offline contractors. TAN eliminates the need for both parties to manually update their booking inventory and retrieve booking confirmations, eradicating overbooking/ under- booking issues associated with room allotments as well as potential human errors in manually maintaining hotel contracts. In addition, TA Network’s digital payment solutions empower hotel clients with virtual card or virtual bank account services to process payments from their global contractors designed to minimize cross border and FX fees

TA Network’s Managing Partner Josef Foo adds, “We are thrilled to have finalised integration and real time B2B distribution connectivity with a world class partner like MBS. Integrating with existing legacy system has been a challenge and we now look forward to working closely with MBS to broaden and deepen their direct booking partnerships with their preferred traditional channel operators, B2B agents and corporates”
