BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RightRez Inc., the leading air travel technology company which provides creative automation and booking solutions, itinerary management tools and custom applications to high-volume travel companies, announced today that is has expanded its offerings to the humanitarian travel agency market.

The automation process for these agencies activates in the background after the PNR is booked. RightRez's products power change management for flight schedules and fares, as a majority of humanitarian travel bookings are made well in advance. 

"Finding and booking the lowest fare is a universal want for all booking agents, but for humanitarian agencies, the automation is indispensable," said Maria Regester, VP of Business Development at RightRez. "75 to 80 percent of humanitarian travel is made possible through donations, so finding the most advantageous air fare available has an even greater impact on this segment of the travel industry.

In the time it takes humanitarian travelers to raise support, scheduled bookings may change 10 to 15 times. RightRez's RightFare product finds automated passenger cost savings. RightRez's RightSked manages the long lead time for the agent who is tasked with tracking, changing or rebooking frequent schedule changes.

"We make the additional responsibilities and regulations for a humanitarian agency's negotiated contract require much less effort and attention," said Mike von Foerster, Founder and CEO of RightRez. RightRez provides both the booking optimization engine as well as the quality control to make sure records are not forgotten or mishandled.

RightRez recently successfully onboarded its first group of humanitarian agencies, McAbee Travel and Mission Nation Travel.
