Product Updates - January 2018

TINA mid back office system updates

Import payments from TBS to TINA for TBS services

The possibility to import payments from TBS system for the imported services that don’t have other cashing documents added was developed in the latest version of TINA.

These payments will arrive in the Imported documents section and will be associated to the specific imported services and corporation.

Thus, TINA users will benefit of a new automated process and will be able to enjoy a 'clear picture' in both TINA and TBS systems.

A Quality Control rule can be defined for multiple entities at once

New possibility has been added when defining a Quality Control Rule. This allows the user to apply it for more than one corporation at a time. This translates into more efficiency, through a simplified process of defining QC rules, as well as relevant time savings for TINA users.

Go Global credentials included in the interface

Until recently, all the configurations were performed by out technical department. In the latest version of TINA we have included the possibility to configure the GoGlobal credentials directly from the interface, by accessing the Setup Module-> Config-> Configuration Assistance section. Now, the users  can make these configurations whenever they are needed - this translated into more autonomy, brought by this this new 'self-service' option.

The utility of having the possibility to configure the mentioned details is given especially for the cases when the password or any of the credentials are modified.

The details added in each Extra description field can be edited and deleted, as per the user need.

Application plugin: AIDA B2S - New option for supplier user to edit price sets

Previously in AIDA, a supplier user (if had access to Manage prices) was able to change the supplier price for all available price sets (rates: Bed&Breakfast, Halfboard, All Inclusive, etc). If one of those price sets represents a negotiated rate, which the supplier user shouldn’t be able to edit, until now the supplier user was able to change the prices. With this new version, each price set has an Allow/Not allow a supplier user to change prices option, set by default on No. When price sets are added, only the TourOperator user allows to the supplier user to change the prices.

  •  Projects/Project Components – Accommodation Services/Price sets, a new option is available: Allow/Not allow supplier users to change prices:

Allow/do not allow supplier users to change prices
