[LIVE WEBINAR] 3 Ways to Master NDC Without Breaking Your Budget
7 August 2018 I 09:00 EST
Getting on board with NDC (New Distribution Capability) isn’t an all-or-nothing deal. While implementing NDC requires strategic planning and alignment with your commercial goals, it can be done on a budget, without disrupting your current distribution processes. You can take a step at a time or fly at full throttle on NDC, but you can’t compromise on the ROI of your NDC solution.
Join ATPCO & SITA experts as they take a deeper dive into the implementation of NDC, explain how it works for the travel suppliers and sellers, including onboarding, timeline, and budget guidelines.
We partnered with industry-owned entities across the airline ecosystem to leverage and bring together expertise, technology, and data so you can implement NDC in an easy, cost-effective—and the right—way.
In this one-hour webinar you will:
- Learn how you can speed time to market and reduce your development resources
- Get the insights on what it takes to master NDC: from budgeting to the implementation plan and production
- View real-time NDC use cases and learn how to realize its benefits
- Get your questions answered live on the most challenging distribution topics
