CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ITA Software, Inc., the leader in developing innovative solutions for the travel industry, today announced that its QPX technology is powering the airline shopping component of nuTravel Technology Solutions’ CTS (Corporate Travel Solution). nuTravel, a provider of cost-effective corporate self booking tools, is taking advantage of the speed and flexibility offered by QPX, the industry’s premier management system for airfare pricing and shopping, to provide its customers with the most advanced and customizable airfare shopping experience and deliver broader, faster results to its users.

“nuTravel is dedicated to providing our customers with the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective corporate travel self booking tool. To achieve this, we’ve partnered with ITA Software because of the company’s proven ability to deliver the most comprehensive and reliable airfare search results available,” said Carmine Carpanzano, president and CEO, nuTravel. “The architecture of our system allows our users to move rapidly through the shopping and booking experience which ultimately allows for greater adoption. By leveraging the power of QPX, we’re able to offer faster flight query results than other corporate self booking tools resulting in response times of 12 seconds or less.”
