Prime Numbers Replacing Travel GPA, Exploring Tech For Contract Negotiations

Prime Numbers Technology expects by September to sunset its original product, Travel GPA, in favor of Prime Analytics, a new data analytics and business intelligence product in development since before founder Rock Blanco left Prime Numbers earlier this year. Prime Analytics already has been rolled out to more than 95 percent of the firm's clients.

"Initial testing shows significant improvements in performance alone," according to Prime Numbers chief technology officer Jason Gabor. "Clients are experiencing a 29 percent decrease in initial load times and slightly more than an 80 percent decrease in load times when interrogating the data."

Many of the new product's enhancements are in look, feel and usability, but it also boasts "enhanced analytics capabilities including on-demand criteria modifications and on-the-fly benchmarking within each component," the company announced, as well as "new independent workspaces across multiple components, which reduce the need to constantly modify criteria."

ICSNetwork vice president Lois Barbero praised the solution's "air and hotel benchmarking sections" and its "ability to quickly modify criteria and receive reliable answers to our clients' questions." ICSNetwork used Travel GPA and now uses Prime Analytics as part of its travel consulting services.

Development also is underway for a new product, tipped for release early next year, to assist TMCs and corporate clients in supplier contract negotiations.

"It is key for companies to get a pulse on what supplier negotiations have yielded for others, and it is the goal of Prime Numbers Technology to help level that playing field," noted director of business development and product marketing Sean Bloomer.
