Fareportal, the travel company powering CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, achieved top honors in the 18th annual American Business Awards in two categories: Communications Department of the Year and Product Management Team of the Year.
The American Business Awards, or the Stevies, were created in 2002 to honor the achievements of organizations and professionals in the USA. It is one of the premier business awards organizations in the U.S. and features a variety of categories to recognize all areas of the workplace. The 2020 competition included 3,600 nominations and entries were judged by a panel of 230 respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators.
“We are extremely proud of our work and it is such an honor to have our team’s achievements recognized with not only one but two gold Stevie® awards,” said Sam S. Jain, CEO and Founder of Fareportal.
Fareportal’s Communications Department created a multi-platform campaign around “National Cheap Flight Day”, an unofficial holiday that is anecdotally regarded as the cheapest day of the year to buy airline tickets. Their efforts included internal and external communications across multiple channels including social, blogs, public relations, email, and broadcast media that successfully reached millions of consumers.
“We believe in the power of integrated storytelling, and really enjoyed creating and executing this campaign for our CheapOair brand. Winning a Gold Stevie® is a big honor for the entire team,” said Kathi Moore, Fareportal VP of Branding & Communications.
The Product Management team earned their gold distinction by successfully bringing together and coordinating a multi-continent team to achieve an innovative and streamlined booking process for CheapOair and One Travel desktop and mobile consumers.
“Our primary focus has always been achieving excellence through collaboration across our international team of immensely talented professionals. Our efforts resulted in the creation of several travel booking innovation products that resulted in a stellar user experience,” remarked Murat Yilmaz, Fareportal VP of Product.
“Our goal was to reduce the work involved in booking a trip and to present our customers with the best deals based on their overt and inferred preferences, creating a hassle free traveling booking experience,” added Michael Nuciforo, VP of Digital at Fareportal.
