Flight Centre Travel Group has agreed a deal with Troovo Technologies to become its global provider for automation of B2B payments.
Troovo Payments, claims to be the world’s only digital and virtual payment processing platform powered by Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
It will integrate its robotic engine to enable ‘invisible payments’ across all Flight Centre group systems and platforms.
Troovo said this will create “a highly secure, completely automated and totally touch-free solution for payments made to FLT’s suppliers”.
Richard Humphreys, global treasurer at Flight Centre, said: “Flight Centre Travel Group continues to focus on innovation, efficiency and next-generation technology to drive continuous growth and simplify processes.
“Troovo gives us flexibility and scalability on a global basis and we are really excited to be working with Troovo to use its unique and innovative RPA solution to achieve our objectives for efficiency, cost-savings and revenue optimisation.”
Troovo co-founder and chief executive Kurt Knackstedt added: “Flight Centre Travel Group has always pushed the envelope around new ways of thinking about its business and giving new technology a go, and we are thrilled to partner with the company to help it achieve its payment objectives.
“Troovo’s world-first RPA capabilities for virtual payments, teamed up with one of the world’s most innovative travel brands, demonstrates Australian ingenuity at its best and will set the standard for how B2B payments should be done by any organisation looking to optimise its payment capabilities”.
The collaboration will see a number of Flight Centre Travel Group business units throughout the globe using Troovo in their operational and payment process flows over coming months, with an aim to fully deploy a global payment switch within the Group which will see supplier payments be routed through and processed by Troovo throughout 2020 and beyond.
